Quilting Update

Well we were back at it again ... quilting that is. We are getting to the exciting part where things are really coming together. I sewed the backing and filler to the quilt so that next session we flip it inside out and do a couple of finishing touches. The quilt measures about 30 inches by 30 inches. Not sure how it ended up ... almost square as it should be a bit more rectangular.

The quilting session did tire me out so I'm really going take it easy for the next few days.

Yesterday I used my inhaler about three times. They sure do work. It really cleared my chest so I could breath easier. Last nights' sleep was really good and I woke up feeling good as well.

When I look at my feet ... the toes are definitely looking more normal ... slimmer and all. That means I'm losing some of the fluid I have been retaining. I still need to use the inhaler today but hopefully this will be one of the last days.

My catheter area is still sore ... I have been coughing quite a bit and that seemed to make it more sore. We'll be watching that closely ... make sure the infection is in fact gone.

Have I told you how great it is to be home. The hospital treated me wonderfully but there truly is nothing like home.

Was this your last quilting session? I thought that one of your fellow sewers told me that. Perhaps I misunderstood.

No more coughing Chickie! We need you to get well!

Quilting is fun! I bet it turns out beautiful.
So glad your home, take care of that cough. This brings back so many memeories of when I was in treatment. Just take care of yourself and take it easy.

Was the catheter a port?

Hurry and get well, I am commanding you. har har

The catheter was a central line not a port.

Have you had either? If yes, do you have any feedback?
