Another Experience

This past week has been a busy one; a little sewing, a little canning, a little writing and a lot of medical stuff. Two hours drive one way gets me to Trail. I’ve been there 3 times this week; surgeon appointment, pre-surgery check in and today an MRI. I was in Nelson which is one hour one way, twice this week. Once for my doctor’s appointment and once for DH to see his doctor. It has been strange for me to be seeing all these doctors. Normally it’s DH’s routine. The good news is, my experiences are coming to completion. Next Tuesday we get to be in Trail at 6:15 am for me to have surgery on my shoulder to repair the rotator cuff and the severed and torn ligaments. I have been warned that it will likely be the most painful experience of my life! Isn’t that sweet of all the various medical personnel to tell me that?!? All I can think of is 10-12 weeks in a sling and probably no sewing for me. On top of that I had to cancel my Guild class.

The good news and things to look forward to; there will be an end to the pain, with the amazing physiotherapist I have I am expecting a full recovery to my pre injury condition, my oldest son, daughter in law and sweet granddaughters will be visiting in September and my youngest son, daughter in law and grandkids want us to come visit when they are settled in Mexico or perhaps Florida. They are leaving Canada to spend the next couple of years travelling the world.. it will be an amazing experience for the kids.

So for today I have no quilt pictures to show off but instead I will share a picture of 4 of my 5 youngest grandkids. These are my two sons kids and this picture was from a few years ago in early spring. The kids have grown up considerable and there is now a younger (2 year old) boy!

My daughters children are much older and are both parents now!

My next post will be information on Marian from Seam’s to be Sew’s fun new Blog Hop; Once Upon a Story which begins September 3. It’s her 5th year doing the fall hop and I promise it will be a fun tour of Hops and some great prizes will be offered for you all to have a chance at winning. Do stop in to check it out.

Life will continue to provide me with new experiences and lessons in patience I’m sure. As long as there is fabric to fondle, quilts to plan and time with children, grandkids, great grandkids and DH I won’t complain, or at least only a little bit!

Thanks for stopping by. I do hope your long weekend is full of fun family time and a last adventure if your kids are starting school next week as they are here. I will check in post surgery! Cheers! 🥴 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
