Quilting Support Group

This morning, I was off to the Cancer Institute to do my quilting support group ... I'm doing pretty good. When I first started, my quilt squares were pretty good and square ... now that they are becoming a bit off ... should I say. In other words, I was ever so careful at first and now I'm just sewing to 'beat the band' because the weeks are ticking down and I want to have something to show for it.

I love joining these support groups ... because I end up chatting with others and I get so much inspiration from them. The people in these groups have either gone through their treatment or are still undergoing treatment. As a group we ended up talking about Porchagese recipes but individually we carried on conversations more closely relating to cancer. I think we feel more comfortable sharing our thoughts and feelings .... because we know ... each of us understands what its like to have cancer.

Our storm from yesterday seems to have passed but the weatherman says another may be around the corner.

I forgot to mention ... I should have the results of yesterday's CT scan this coming Monday when I see my oncologist. I can't say I have scanxiety just yet ... but I will probably be taking an Ativan on Sunday night.
