isn't it amazing what a blessing our quilting friends are!  And Especially Cathy.

We wish we had solved all the world's problems!  Carolyn did whine a little about doing some of the things she needed to do like walking, using her incentive spirometer, eating, etc.  I told her she may be the princess but this time I was the boss.  She really did well.  i complained that she didn't have one of her pecan pies read for me.  She walked me through making one.  It was delish as usual.  I now have the recipe.  WE went out to lunch with her WSU lunch bunch to some place called New Ways, loose ground beef burgers and really good onion rings.  Patty, if you haven't been to the Donut Palace, make sure she takes you.  Yum!  We did talk and talk and talk.  Even though I brought kits, I never sewed a stitch. Too busy talking.  I'm glad I went and could be helpful.  I'm praying that the Keytruda keeps the nasty old Cancer cells away.

Now I hope this note will "post".

I'm so glad to read about the success of your surgery.  Your recovery sounds like it is going well too.  I'll have to look for the Keytuda commercial - I never watch the commercials (pause & then fast forward through them).  What a blessing Cathy is to you.

We just got back from a relaxing week in South Lake Tahoe.  This is likely our last big trip.  Rick's back is getting so bad it's hard for him to sit long enough to get most places.  I guess stay-cations are in our future.

Keep healing.  You are in my prayers.

I just received a thank you from Marcia Hohn and Quilter's Cache for the "generous" donation that all the retreaters gave to her site.   We again used one of the blocks, the sawtooth star and it's variations, from Quilter's Cache for our lotto block this year.  We had great participation and 5 of us went home with enough blocks for a quilt.

 That’s great Cathy. I know our donations over the years have really helped her site. 

Ladies, here’s a pic of my new grandson                                         Monty Tyler Price. 
the midwife didn’t make it in time and I had to deliver him!!! It was both exhilarating and terrifying. He was really blue but I used my hand to clean his face,nose, and clean out his mouth, finally he cries as I was rubbing his chest. (Something I read).

Thanks, when I realized the midwife was 25 minutes out (really 40 ). I admit I had 1 minute to literally freak out. Then I called on the Lord to help me because I had nothing within reach except a towel. And let me tell you I was so glad I had that towel. (She was in the tub). I pulled the drain up to let the water out and there he was. 
now I can relive it in my mind and still can’t believe it.

OMG.   Had you anticipated that might be a possibility?  Had you read up on midwifery techniques?? How on earth did you know what to do????

I am SO glad that all ended well and that mother and child are doing nicely.

What an incredible entrance into the world and something to write in his baby book!


Congratulations and well wishes to all!
