Oh, that's heartbreaking to read about a furchild who is in distress and cannot tell you what hurts. I hope that your veterinarian can solve Mandy's problem and give a good outcome for a dearly loved member of the family.

Certainly will send good thoughts for your little dog.  It's so scary when they don't feel good and can't tell you what's bothering them.. Let us know how things go.

Let us know how things go.

The specialist wants more x-rays and a sonogram to make a real diagnosis: estimated cost is between $1500 and $2000.  This would be in addition to the x-rays, blood work, meds and overnight stay that has already been done:  actual cost $1000.  The specialist said,  "even the sonogram and additional x-rays might not give us any answers.....after all, it's medicine."  So $200 later, we agreed to try the alternative of starting her on an anti-seizure med  to see how she might improve.  The plus is that those meds have a side effect of increasing appetite, which has been another problem with her.  Continue prayers, please.

Be sure there is a recognizable piece of your ugly fat quarter in the item you make.

David did a great job on your binding holder.  I roll my binding up and put it in one of those plastic containers that large spices  come in.  I thread the end thru the opening that and it keeps the binding from rolling all over the floor.  

Glad you got your baby quilt finished.  Great solution.

I made another trip to the ER last night.  Afib again. 

I thought you were done with that after your ablation!  Did your watch tell you that you were in a fib?  Glad you ddn't have to stay.i

Asking for special little doggie prayers for our little Mandy.

I hope they find the answer.   Very concerning when our pets won't eat or drink!

Well. Monday I got back from "not babysitting" my DGD.  All went well.  I took some kits with me and managed to complete 3 quilt tops for the church charity group.  Also started making the ugly fabric project for the retreat.  

First day home I had a Dr. appt.  Scheduled for cortisone in my R shoulder on the 15th.  If that doesn't help we will worry about the neck.

Yesterday was Bob's birthday.  Now we are the same age for 1 month and 8 days.  I need to enjoy that.wink  

Finally got to the forum today.  98 messages waiting on this thread.  Glad to be back.  No more travel planned for this Fall except a quilt retreat later this month.  I want to stay home.

With thanks to DH for holding these up, here are the quilt tops I finished.  Simple, nothing fancy or difficult.  Carolyn gave me the blocks for the blue one.  They were swap blocks among her quilting group in Kansas.
