It certainly does.  You have been a tremendous long distant helper.  The medical supplies you sent are so much better than what I can get at a drug store.  That pressure sore is almost completely healed up.

  I'm not sure I like the utter randomness of the 1600" Jelly Roll Race quilt pattern

I haven’t ever been a huge fan of jelly roll race quilts, but yesterday I saw one I loved. I’m so mad at myself for not taking a picture. 
It was a traditional pattern, but the quilting made it fantastic. All they did was turn it so the strips were vertical and then quilted straight lines across in sets of two. Two lines about half an inch apart and then the next set about 1.5 inches from the first. Changed the whole look and made it look modern and really great. 
 

Maybe this is common, but I’ve always seen them with the strips horizontal and usually an edge to edge something. Fine, but not a wow piece ya know?  Somehow turning it made it a wow piece for me. 
 

I don’t have automatic channel locks so when I decide I want to get my steps in, I’ll give this one a shot

I’m starting Chemo on Wednesday June 23rd. I have to do 4 treatments 3 weeks apart so I should be done by end of August. Then a short break before radiation 21 treatments which should be done by the 1st of October.

I’m sorry you have to go through this, but thankful for the science that makes it possible. Thought and hugs to you. Know we are keeping you close in our hearts.

we have to have it super clean since I will not have any immune system

You obviously just need to throw a cleaning product in with every order. Online shopping is good for the soul!

Glad to hear things are headed in the right direction. Been thinking of you often. Hang in there!

Thanks so much. With a 7 1/2 month old baby boy in the house, it’s easy to smile and laugh. He is such a joy. Cries every 15 minutes when he falls, bumps his head etc. barely crawling but starting to stand up on the fort stool or chair. Or even the wall.

I do dance!

my Sidney loves it when I dance around he thinks he’s on a ride and just giggles.
They still have to hand him to me, because I don’t have a clearance to lift him yet. 
my Oncologist told me the same thing Suze, “Just call us, we have meds to help”

I hope your treatments are going well. Many prayers.

Retail therapy sure helps sometimes. I’ll pray for moderation. Lol
