Quilt With Us

Good Morning:

Yes I’m home from the hospital and on reduced pain meds enough to trust what may come out of my brain and know that it’s okay to post now.  I had my surgery on Feb 14th and came home on the 15th.  I have two new friends with me, one is Wendy the Walker and the other is Patty the port-a-potty.  We are getting well acquainted with each other and getting quite up close and personal. 

The surgery was a little longer than expected and I did end up having part of my pelvic bone removed so I need the Wendy to get around for 4 weeks.  The lab results are due back this week so I’ll know which way my nose is pointed after healing is complete.  I wanted so badly to get released as soon as possible and the nurses told me that I had to go potty to have that happen.  Well, let me tell you, I have never worked so hard in all my life to get something so simple accomplished.  On the 3rd or 4th try I even had 2 nurses, 1 aid, my DH and the physical therapist all standing at the bathroom door cheering me on. I wanted to holler to “bring in the national guard!”.    You should try it?   NOT.    Well, by the end of the day I wanted to celebrate so I’m told the whole back wing of the hospital heard me whoop with joy.  I was getting to go home……..Everything looks really good and we are hoping that nothing else will be needed.  If the margins come back dirty then radiation will be prescribed and that will be very doable.  I really appreciate all the thoughts and prayers.    You all are so amazing to add me to your lists.  Thanks for that.

Glad you are home Debbie, I hope your friends don't overstay their visit. Still thinking of you and hope test results are good!

The next patterns you design will be "how to decorate a----". There's always a need for walker carryall's to replace purses etc. Maybe take your scraps and decoupage the whole thing.

Great to hear from you and how well you are doing.  We all should have your attitude and sense of humor.  In the cancer battle, that counts alot.  God speed.

Thank you all....I'm liking the idea of putting Wendy to work in the sewing room, Aida, when she retires...maybe some spray paint and a few embellishments..hmmmm the wheels are turning...yikes?

I've been watching the daily posts hoping to see one from you. So glad to hear you're doing okay with your new friends and will soon say bye to Patty. Keeping you in my prayers for clean margins and a full recovery, so that you can get back your life as you new it. God doesn't give us more than we can handle. Hugs.

So happy to see your post today as I have been wondering how things went. Of course I should have known that with your attitude there was nothing to worry about. I pray that things continue to progress well for you. May He give you strength as you continue to recover.

Congratulations on the toiling!  :)  It's so good to be home, isn't it?  Hang on to Wendy and keep Patty close by.

Glad you're home and on the road to recovery again.  There is just no hope of modesty or privacy in a hospital setting is there?  I had a breast biopsy a few years ago while some reconstruction (not me - the building) was going on.  They had the hospital bed strategically placed so that anyone going in and out of the door gave people in the hallway a full view of the patient.  I flashed several construction workers through that ordeal - granted it wasn't a big flash, because I'm flat as a board, but STILL!  I thought they could have been a little more discreet.  

Praying for clean margins and a full recovery.
