Home At Last

Rich came home form the hospital Friday afternoon. He was in for 2days for Congested Heart Failure  and  Pneumona. He has been sick for the past couple of weeks but finally got tho the hospital stage on Wednesday night. The last time he was sick like this was in February. The doctors are concerned because  his heart is so bad.
As far as stitching, there hasn't been enough of it to post any pictures. I think my mojo has been in hiding.
Yesterday my girlfriend and I had what we call "A Mental Health Day",  we took of around noon time and took a ride to the new Hobby Lobby in Holyoke Mass. It is huge !! We walked around the mall for a little while and then stopped at Friendly's for a late lunch and then headed home. Had a great day. Called DH several time throughout the day to check on him. He napped on and off all day. It felt good to get away for a little while.
Well that is about it for now. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Take care

I think your eyes must be tired of looking by now so I will close for now. Take care, thanks for stopping by and have a nice day.

Hi All !! I'm Back !!

It is hard to believe that I have not blogs in almost a year. I really need to change the name of my blog as this is definitely not a daily thing. LOL  life continues hectic as usual. I am sure that is a daily mantra for most of us.

The majority of our time is spent with doctors, Rich continues to have health issues with a diagnosis of cancer added to them this past November. I do think they have the cancer in hand though. He finished his chemo and is now on maintenance doses that will last for two years. Unfortunately the medication has some detrimental side effects on his heart which is bad already. Oh well, we just go day by day and take what the Good Lord gives us.

I have been stitching sporadically at best. A few finishes of UFOs and several quilt squares for World of Charity. I will post pictures when I am on the computer again.

I hope everyone has a great summer. Take care and thanks for stopping by.
