Mom's Home :)

Just wanted to give a quick update. Mom went home on Friday. She's doing very well! Now we're waiting to hear if she has made it onto the Heart Transplant List - yep you heard me! Please keep my family in your prayers. Every prayer counts! We'll go from there once that happens.

Update (9/24/08) - We got the news yesterday that the donor board has accepted putting her on the heart transplant list - YAH!!!! Now all we have to do is wait for the insurance company's approval. I hope that dosen't take too long; I'm guessing maybe a week. I'm working one step at a time! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the warm thoughts and prayers you're sending our way. Please keep them coming!

On the stitching front, I don't have anything to show. I've been stitching more on the class kit for the Pals Fall Retreat in MB, SC. Can't wait for that little vacation! Picked up the newest JCS Ornament Issue this weekend. This is the only x-stitch magazine I buy all year and I wait with anticipation each year! This year's issue was well worth the wait. I like so many in this issue - I don't know where to begin. I have to stitch Jane Timmers (Fancy Work) "Adeste Fideles" ornament because she'll be teaching the finishing technique at the retreat.

I think Thea Dueck's (The Victoria Sampler) "A Merry Little House" is the one that most interests me! I'm already trying to decide when I can start on this little gem. It will have to wait until after Jane's ornament is completed first.

I've strayed a little from my normal Daily Dose of Serenity today! Can't you just taste the awesome hot counch fritters and cold Kalik beer!!!! I could really use a vacation!

Hugs, hugs, hugs, and prayers, my dear. I can't wait to see you--- only weeks away now (I'm too daunted to say "days" yet).
