Barbara - OUCH! I hope your "demon eye" heals quickly! It's great that you don't have to go back until late September! Happy to hear your vision is better! That's good news! Hopefully, this treatment has solved the problem.

Good morning. 

Hope your DH is enjoying better vision this AM Carol.

My injection left me with a sore bloody eye this time. It should clear up in a few days and I am using some drops for the irritation. He nicked a little blood vessel so it looks like a demon eye. The good news is that I don't have to go back until late September and may not need a shot then. The vision is better, if not perfect. At least I don't have a brown spot in my rt eye now.

Staying home today to do tomato canning and catch the Eleanor Burns live 40 Fabulous Years ( 10 am central time )

Good information, Ally, thanks! Kids can wear you out, but they are worth the effort...& the loss of sleep!

Comment by Ally Bryant yesterday

Marianne - My DH repairs sewing machine so I asked him. When you push the lever make sure it click to disengage the feed dogs and check again that your bobbin case is in the right position. When I take my bobbin case apart to clean fluff out I have a little red triangle dot to align back in place so make sure yours is in place and aligned, otherwise it will interfere with the drive of the feed dogs, hope this helps. Another suggestion is put your make into You Tube and ask the question about feed dogs there maybe a video on it.

Carol praying all went well for your DH. 

Barbara hope your injection continues to help with your eye infection.

Well DH and I are truly whacked but had such a happy time kids flew back yesterday at 3pm and just got a quick message on my I Pad to say they are on the bus enroute to their boat. It was a lovely time we had but we realize we aren't as young as we were!!LOL!!  My DH took his hearing aids out for most of the time as the noise of the kids laughing and chatter was making his head boom.!!LOL.

Hope your husbands eye surgery all goes well, it's a very anxious time for you all, but he is in our prayers.

Now, I have a problem trying to do free motion embroidery.  The feed dogs don't seem to go down,  I have switched the lever on the machine, I am wondering if there is something wrong with my machines.  I recently got something stuck  and had to lift out the bobbin case, it seems well now, but I wonder if I did something that has affected the feed dogs, if anyone has a view or help with this problem, I would appreciate it.  Thanks.

Carol, sending positive thoughts that your husband's eye surgery goes well.

Barbara, the same with your eye injections.  

We spent most of the day at the VA so hopefully I will be able to finish basting that quilt tomorrow.  It just wouldn't cooperate with me yesterday so I finally pinned 2 sides & then put it in the dryer with a dryer sheet for about 20 minutes.  Then I draped it over my ironing board so hopefully the static is now out of it so I can keep everything straight.  

My son & his family got home safely last night.  He said the flight was pretty bumpy all the way home though.  That is typical when you are taking off or landing in Las Vegas because of the mountains, but normally things level off once you are high enough up.  Hope it didn't scare the kids off from flying again.

Oh, Barbara, you'd have fallen off the wall laughing. Carol, blessings to your DH.

Comment by Debbi Lamb/AZ on Monday

Carol - Prayers for your husband's surgery today. I hope that the surgery goes well and his eyesight is improved!

Barbara - I hope your eye injection goes well and that the injections continue to help!

Janet - 9-1/2 hours! Wow! That's great! I hope the quilt basting goes well. I know what you mean about the basting not being your favorite part.

Comment by Barbara S/IL on Sunday

Congratulations Ally &DH. Great family picture too.

Carol, prayers for a great outcome for your DH and peace for you.

Wow, Sheila. I know I wouldn't be able to keep up with a toddler. But I'd love to have been a fly on the wall of watching you romp.

The visit to the Clydesdale farm would be so much fun.

I have the third eye injection tomorrow. The first two have helped so far. Hoping the next one does too.
