Dec 14th was our 16th wedding anniversary and we spent it in the hospital. The kitchen staff made us a special meal of steak, broccoli, salad, bread and sherbert. They set a table in the dining room with a table cloth, a center piece, Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Cider in an ice bucket and wine glasses. This meant so much to me as my husband wanted to be home on this day. I will forever be grateful for what they did for us on our special day.
6 months ago I designed and ordered a wedding ring quilt for this anniversary. It was down to the wire on completion but it did get finished in time and was on our bed when he was released on Sunday afternoon.
Here it is with the quilter Pamela Quilts and myself.
And here it is on our bed
My husband went to get a chest Xray today to see if the pneumonia is gone and it isn't. He sees the doctor tomorrow. If this doesn't clear up soon she will be transferring him to River Bend in Springfield where there are specialists because she says she has done all she knows to do for him. I am very worried for the simple fact that a body can only take so much and with his immune system being so weak due to his leukemia/lymphoma it is bound to happen over and over.
I am happy to have him home for the holidays and the good news is his daughter and three grandchildren are driving out on Saturday from CA. This will be good for him.
I am also happy to announce that my Etsy Shop Altered State of Tin www.alteredstateoftin.etsy.com , which I opened a year ago in December has done very well in the past year.
My First Great granddaughter turned two years old and I am expecting my first Great grandson in January. I have lots to be thankful for and am blessed in so many ways.
So I just wanted to update you all on what has been going on in my life and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. My plan for the new year is to get my husband healthy and give my blog a face lift as well as keep it up more often. I so enjoy reading all of my blogger friends blogs .
