Dancing In The Moonlight...

Brynwood Needleworks - Needle Dancing

 Needle Dancing, that is.

I had a long day yesterday. I left home for Milwaukee shortly after noon, and arrived in time for my appointment. I waited an hour before seeing my new doctor, and then went through a number of tests. I left her office near 5:00 pm with a plan of action. Another surgery is in my future, even though I won't have a date until next week.
 
I didn't get back home until after 6 pm, and Handsome had dinner waiting when I walked in the door. I was so grateful, because, truthfully, I was pretty tired by then. We said grace, ate our dinner, and did cleanup. Then, he made a cup of tea for me, and I put my feet up for a little while. 

Later, I went upstairs with my Everlasting blocks and hopped on the bed with the Labradors to stitch for a couple of hours. A perfect way to decompress before bedtime. It worked like a charm and I slept like a baby. 

Our kitchen project is underway, so you can expect to see photos and information soon. I know it's a tease, but isn't it a great way to end this post? I sure think so, and something we can both look forward to! Soon. I promise.

    1. Hi, girlfriend.
      Thanks so much. I'm using Valdani pearl cottons. I really like using them with wools.

  3. I'm so sorry that you will have to face yet another surgery - it's certainly getting tedious isn't it. Hopefully this one will do what's needed and that it, and your recovery, will be quick. Sounds like your new dr. is thorough so that's hopeful.

    1. Hi Maggie:
      Boy, you've got that right! Tedious to the max! It looks like I may not be able to have the surgery before July or August, so I'll have to endure the summer like this. The surgery will only take care of part of the issue, and then I'll have to do semi-annual injections for the other part of the issue. I'm not sure if that part will be in perpetuity or only short term. All because the first surgery last July was botched by the first doctor. Truthfully, it makes me very angry...which is not how I like to function. Anger robs joy. I keep telling myself that. sigh
      I do like the new doctor, and am looking forward to her treating me.
      Thanks so much, dear.

    2. All we can do is put one foot in front of the other and try to maintain a positive attitude. No point in dwelling on what went on before even though it's exceedingly difficult not to. Just keep the reminder in your mind that anger does indeed rob joy. Take care of you!

  4. Praying that your next surgery will correct the problem.

    1. Hi Bonnie:
      I learned yesterday that it's actually two problems. sigh Surgery will take care of one part, and semi-annual injections are the plan to take care of the second part. Sorry it's cryptic, but it's one of those "women's issues" that no one usually talks about. Perhaps that is enough of a clue to explain.
      Thanks,
      xoxo
