Janice Aitkens, how are you doing?  Were you able to have your procedure?  I have been praying for you.  I miss your morning inspirational posts.

Medical science has come so far these days that I'm constantly amazed by what doctors are able to do for children and people with issues we knew nothing or very little about 50 years ago.
Take care

Ladies, I need your prayers.  Our family is going through a lot lately.  I have COPD, my husband was diagnosed 3 mos, ago with prostate cancer (refusing any intervention at this time), and just last Friday Ryan our 2nd oldest informed us that his unborn child has a heart defect.  Baby Avery Rose is due in March 2018.

I have posted this in my blog.  http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com/profiles/blog/list?user=3c...

Here is his text to me:

The unborn child has Tetralogy of Fallot. A congenital heart defect consisting of 4 problems that result in not enough blood flow to the lungs and a hole in the heart. This condition will require 1 - 2 surgeries, the first may occur shortly after birth and/or at 3 - 6 mos old. The number of, and timing depends on how the heart develops and how the baby is when born. There may be other physical and mental defects associated with this diagnosis, but won't know until later on - probably after birth. The specialist was really positive and gave great insight into this and we will continue to see her throughout the pregnancy. They will need to deliver in Dallas where there is a special pediatric heart surgeon and NICU available.
They were also told that out of all of the heart defects, this one is one of the better ones. The dr said that the outlook is very good for individuals with this condition and diagnosis to lead normal lives.
Now I have a quilting dilemma.  I have some 40 woven crosses that I have put fabric borders on and want to make a quilt out of it.   I am trying to figure out how to do it.  I do plan on putting lattice in, but if I sandwich as normal, the batting will show through the crosses.  Would you put a solid fabric behind the top, then batting and backing?  Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Marianne They got me in quickly as once the original specialist got the letter done which was last Monday (saw him the previous Thursday) & I got the appointment letters last Wednesday so our NHS can move very quickly when it needs to
