Seems like the lemonade just gets a little tarter these days. DH's bone marrow test was canceled a few hours before we were due to arrive at the doctor's. Luckily, we were home when the office called to tell us that the doc had an emergency and the test will be rescheduled at our local hospital. Not sure when that will be. In the meantime, we were phoned by the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Orlando and he is now scheduled to see a doc there on the 31st of this month. Not sure if this is like a second opinion or if they are positive that he HAS cancer and are trying to narrow the field. Will be glad when we finally know something definitive.
Work on the house in Michigan is progressing. We have to pay the deductible (which we have sent to the carpenter) and the plumber. The burst pipe isn't covered; however, the damages done by the cascading water is. When all is said and done, the bathroom that exploded will become a half bath (no shower or tub), will have new floor, new fixtures, paint, etc., new flooring/walls in laundry room/entry way, hallway, pantry, kitchen and breakfast/kitchen area, new bottom cabinets installed and all will be made to match the upper with new coat of paint on all so everything looks new. Hopefully, this will be a blessing in disguise and will allow the house to sell fast.
Have been told my 95 year old MIL is now in the hospital with pneumonia. She didn't want to go but, thankfully, SIL insisted that she go to doc who had her admitted.
To keep my sanity, or what is left of it, I have been working like a mad woman on a Bali Batik Star Double Wedding Ring quilt by Judy Neidermeyer (sorry if I spelled it wrong) and, so far, have completed all the Unit A arch's (880 pieces of fabric) 110 of them and starting on the Unit B which will have almost the same amount of fabric except for two additional pieces (one on each end) that will make up the 4-patch block that the stars emerge from. Doing this doesn't really require any creativity/thinking on my part so made it the perfect project to do. Have withdrawn from swaps and sewing meetings as just not up to being away from DH for any length of time. We have been going to the gym 3 times a week to work out as another way to deal with the anxiety/unknowns of this whole screwy situation. The thought of what the actual prognosis scares the stuffing right out of me and am trying hard not to think about that.
Well, best see if there's any "sugar" with which to sweeten this latest batch of lemonade.
