Two days later she is in surgery to have her gallbladder and a portion of her colon removed. During surgery, the surgeon ran into complications and couldn't do the procedure as planned. That turned out to be a good thing, though, because he also found cancer in her intestine.
As a child I remember feeling very sad at Christmas when I learned of the passing of a lady who went to our church. I thought how sad it must be too lose a loved one or get sad news around the holidays. They would never be the same. Unfortunately, I will never think of Thanksgiving in the same way in light of what happened the past week. Time will heal the shock but Thanksgiving will always be the holiday season when mom was diagnosed with cancer.
I spent a lot of hours in the hospital and put my time to good use. I worked on my baskets.
Did I mention I need 280 something of these little guys to make a quilt? They are perfect for hospital visits. I am sure we will have many more medical appointments so I'll have a lot of opportunities to make more.
Hope you get a lot of quality quilting time in this holiday season!
