Molly's Quilt Arrived
The quilt from Dee for Crystal's roommate, Molly, was waiting for me when I got home from the hospital today. This is one of the quilts made
for the Quilt Sudio 40 Quilts Service Project_Female.
It was wrapped in a beautiful gift bag and is such a lovely quilt. The pattern and piecing are so well done and Deb G.'s feather quilting is perfect to set off the plain squares and borders.
Now that I have both quilts, Crystal's mom can set up a time for a presentation to the two women. The local newspaper wants to take photos and do a story.
We're also going to find out if they know any other women at Fort Carson who have been wounded and haven't received a quilt yet. Since we have 30 quilts promised for the women, Debra says we might as well give some to women that we know of personally.
Thanks for your warm wishes and prayers for Mom. The medication they are dripping in her is helping her to be much more comfortable and they are beginning tests to determine what is causing her to be unable to retain food or water. We were also able to talk to the Discharge Planner about what needs to be done for her and Dad when he is released. This sure relieves me and takes a lot of the load off my back.
I was feeling so beat down last night and then this morning my oldest granddaughter, Lindsey, called to tell me that she is going to have another baby, which will be our third great grandchild. That cheered me up considerably. What a gift that the miracle of life goes on in the midst of pain and struggle.
This is Lindsay, Me, Mom, Kaylee, and Michal Ann, our five generations taken last Thanksgiving.
I just noticed how much Mom now looks like Granny did before she flew away. I'd always thought she looked more like her Poppa.
