Thanki you for all your comments to Autumn's Blessings. That was such a fun piece to do!
I've had limited stitching time this week but when I've stitched I've gotten a lot done on this. This is for a quilt we are doing at Cross Stitch Addicts featuring logos of sports teams. I confess I am having a hard time getting into this piece but it's about half done now.
Things have happened this week that have kept me busy. My sister came into town Sat. - Mon. so I got to see her. Most of the time we played games at mom and dad's house.
Final preparations are being made for our Mystery Dinner at church next weekend. I'm getting excited about this although it looks like I'm going to be really busy during it. I seenm to have a role almost everywhere even collecting the tickets, which I have also been selling. We have to pay the caterer so that's the price of the tickets. I knew I was going to be one of the characters but I didn't know I was going to be in the video too.; so is my dad, and he didn't know either. Sometime this weekend we are suppose to do that.
Saturday we are going on a color tour up north. We are stopping at a farm and going on a wagon ride. That will be fun then going to a restaurant in Hesperia. My dad's parents use to live in Hesperia for many years. Wonder if we'll get to go by their old house. By what I hear,l it is beautiful now.
This past week my brother found a long lost cousin so I got to connect with her on face book too. Kenn was looking for someone else with her first name, and her name showed up too so he figured he would at least ask if she was her and if she'd accept him as a friend and she did. Then she accepted me and a couple other family members. She had long ago ex communicated herself from the family long story and now would like to at least regain contact with the cousins. She also has made ammends with her dad so that's good. The sad part though is she has cancer and is going through treatments.
Last Tuesday I had the hearing test to see how much hearling loss I had. I expected just to be told I need a hearing aid for the right ear. But she told me I had to see the Dr. so I figured that will take a couple of months as he's so busy so okay. But they got me in fast, like on Friday. I was unprepared for what he was to tell me. The loss was so substancial and with the viritgo being such a problem often the case is a benign brain tumor so he wants me to have a MRI. That scares me I don't want it, I do have it scheduled but I may chicken out yet. I am so claustrophobic and with my problems with asthma etc. I don't want the test even though he did give me valium to take that day!
Also I finally went to the Dr. today for my hip and shoulder pain. Fortunately that was much better than I was expecting. I was expecting possible hip replacement and rotary cup problems. Yes to the rotary cup as a possiblithy but he thinks once he gets the x rays back either a cortizone shot or Physical therapy will help, Nothing was said about it possibly being torn or surgery to replace it like I was afraid would be. The hip he thinks is arthritis. Which he also thinks is a possiblilty with the shoulder too. So if that's the case, I will just have to deal with it. He did give me a prescription for pain pills and hopefully they will be mild enough for my stomach to handle most prescription ones I don't handle. So far so good, but I only took the first one an hour ago.
We had a scare with Wendy's 6 year old grand daughter this past Sunday. My brother called and said little MaKenzie had catatonic seizures and they couldn't get her out of them so they took her to the hospital. The hospital sent her to a Children's Hospital in GR thinking she had a brain aneurism. Today all is well, it was not an aneurism. Thank God a lot of people were praying for that little girl. What happened we don't know but she is fine and home now.
