Here I am again...


Hooking a season behind :)
The background on this chair pad/mat is actually a plum/gray...i used two rows of antique black around the tree also...just binding it today...
I liked the one I made earlier so much that I decided to make another one...

On the home front...my husband had a mild stroke Friday so I've been kind of overwhelmed this past few days...he's doing fine and doesn't have any permanent damage...I so glad I took him up to emergency as soon as I noticed his speech slurring...it was truly scary; the doctors said he is VERY lucky and I think so too...
He is also diabetic, which I've suspected for awhile now, so he's on meds for that and his BP and cholestrol too...changing his diet is going to be a challenge for him and me, but so far he's doing well with that...
I'm also concerned because we don't have medical insurance, but the hospital and doctors told us right off that they will work with us on that, so I've been filling out paperwork, getting copies of stuff together, etc...
So tonight, say a little extra prayer for us please...

Sandi, I'm glad that hubby is OK and that you had the great sence of taking him to emergency.

Hope that all will be well with the finance side of things. How scarry this must have been for you.

I'm praying for a full recovery. It's so good to have a second chance. This alone, will help you to prepare healtier meals. Good luck. You are both in my prayers. Hugs, JB

Oh Sandi! Here I finally came over to see your blog and see this. I'm so glad you got him in so quickly. My mom had a very bad stroke years ago and if we had only known more then. Take care...
