Cross Stitch Happy

Monday, September 20, 2010


I really wanted to show you my stitching that I have been doing. I have a number of different finishes, from LHN Simple Joys and a couple of her ornaments to Blackbird Designs Small Token and Bird in Hand, with small freebies thrown in to whatever, no really Whatever by LK. I plan on finishing this one as a small pillow and placing it on my couch where I can look at it while I watch TV and stitch. It's exactly how I feel in my life now.

Last Oct. I had a pelvic ultra sound done with a lab note to have a follow up one in 3-4 months.
That was done at the end of January and it's been one doctor visit after another since then. What should have been a simple office procedure has resulted in me having to go for surgery. Oh and it's the second surgery. Last June 10 I had day surgery (laparoscopy and D&C ), which was not successful, so this has resulted in me going for a complete hysterectomy the "old-fashioned" way. Tomorrow Sept. 21st is the day and I get to stay in for a couple of nights. which I DO NOT fancy doing. So, if you can please send some good thoughts my way, I would really appreciate it.

Not sure if I will be able to use the stairs when I get home, so may end up sleeping downstairs in the guest room. Since my computer is upstairs, it may be next week before I can blog.

Oh and why is it I can't show you my stitching, with all this on my mind and other issues, I just have not been in the frame of mind to take pictures, in fact I havn't been doing much other then stitching, eating, playing games and more eating.

Well it's now 10:30 and since I have to be at the hospital 6:30 in the morning which means being ready to go by 5:45 I better get to bed. What I would really like to know is why I spent two hours at pre-admin last week and still need to be at the hospital so early when surgery is at 8:00 a.m.


PS: some weeks ago I was gong to post a video, but delted it. how do I get rid of that little box saying it was deleted ?

As for the deleted photo box -- no idea. Sorry. As for the surgery -- good luck! Just think about all the stitching you will get done in a few days. Hope you can manage the steps soon!

My dear Irene, you probably have already had your procedure, but I want you to know that I pray a daily rosary and I include all my friends that are ill and in need. I will include you tomorrow a.m. by name. I hope you are well....hugs and love,
