Quilt With Us

Hope all have recovered from turkey day and Black Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and Cyber Monday! Phew! My fingers are tired from all that walking. LOL.

Went to see the orthopedic surgeon today for results of MRI and will be having surgery on Feb. 1st to remove some floating bone spurs, attached spurs, clean up some fraying on muscles/tendons and repair what appears to be several tears in and around the rotator cuff. At least now I have answers and pretty sure that this will be a walk in the park.

I had some white knuckle driving coming back from Petoskey (where surgeon is located) which is 3 hours from my home in Ossineke, MI. There was white out conditions in spots and really heavy snowfall. This almost disappeared when we reached Gaylord (approx. 1 1/2 hrs from Petoskey and 2 hours from my home) and then there was very light to no snowfall when I reached my area. Go figure. Sometimes when they call for snow here, we get nothing but everyone else does. Gaylord usually gets the brunt of the snow this early but has received surprisingly little so far this year.

I will be going to a quilt retreat in Lake Pleasant Dec. 6-9 and then driving to my son's wedding in Washington, D.C. Leaving Michigan on Dec. 19-20 to be there for the wedding on the 21st and returning to Michigan on the 22nd or 23rd. A lot will depend upon the weather. I'm certainly NOT looking forward to driving in the winter from Michigan through Maryland, etc. but with what we have to take down, it would be cost prohibitative to ship. We're giving them a complete 12 piece place setting of Norataki (sp) china which amounts to almost 40 pieces total.

Have worked on several wonderful swaps, the latest called an inside out swap as you do the center section (4" x 6") and your partner has to do the outside to compliment your center. Will post pictures when all is completed so as not to ruin the surprise of my swap partner.

Wishing each and every one of you all the very best that life has to offer.

Thanks for all the good wishes for the upcoming surgery. Don't really have too many concerns in that area except that the surgery is on my dominant side -- the left. Just means I won't be able to do heavy lifting such as making beds, doing laundry, etc. But then again I have a wonderful hubby who does that for me without asking. :)

The drive in the winter concerns me because of roads and goofy drivers who take risks. I lived in Maryland/Washington, D.C. area for over 30-years and am very familiar with roads there; however, they don't get enough snow to really do a great job at it and get inundated very easily. The portion of the drive that concerns me is between Michigan/Ohio where you get Lake Effect snows and it can get pretty touchy. But will cross that bridge when we get there. Always have a phone charger in the car and we take along snacks and drinks for those inbetween areas and just in case.

Good luck on your surgery and wish you full recovery.

Glad you have some answers and a plan of attack now Terri. No wonder you've been hurting so!  My goodness. Ask your doc about the ice therapy machine - it was a life saver for DH's recovery from his shoulder surgery. We recommend it highly.  I'm so glad you have some fun things coming up and hope the weather cooperates for you.  Whiteout driving is just NOT fun.

I hope you'll be doing ok with your surgery. This isn't an easy surgery,,I hope you'll be better after all is said and done.

Sounds like you'll be getting the works, Terri!  And, you'll need lots of pampering!  Enjoy the retreat, and then the wedding.  I hate white knuckle driving, I'm hoping for good weather for you!

Drive safely! It is amazing how different the weather can be just over the next hill--dry or whiteout. Makes winter driving more exciting than necessary.

Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Will be very beautiful with all the holiday decorations! Lots of driving for sure...never know with winter weather...but Maryland is excellent on keeping their roads clear. Pack an emergency kit just in case. Have a phone charger in the car!
