Baby In A Bowl
Corey Jr is 10 months old, very tall and thin. Just like his father was when he was this age. His length and weight when he was born were about the same as his father's so I suspect he will be a long legged thin and tall man when he grows up. Corey and Corey Jr spend a lot of time together which makes my heart happy. But then I knew he would be a great dad.
It appears that if all goes well, we will be seeing our baby in person soon.
When Terry was in the hospital, I started to crochet a small afghan with variegated yarn that I had in my stash. Simple stitches with no real pattern and a little shell border finish. I tried to take a picture of the entire afghan, but the picture turned out so bad. All those little stitched colors looked like a pixel blur so I took a close up picture of it folded and it shows up a little better. I will be gifting it to Alyssa for the new baby.
Next I'll be working on finishing Nic's Super Hero quilt. I just got little Corey's quilt (remember the sharks) bound and washed. I am just so happy how it turned out and am really proud of myself. It's really my second quilt. This is such a learning experience!
Grateful: Recently my focus on what I am grateful for is doctors. Terry had his follow up visit with the cardiologist that saw him in the hospital. We have a total understanding of what Afib is made clear to us by his VA doc, our family doc and his Cardio doc. Now the Cardio doc has thoroughly explained what Terry's options for treatment are. Terry's brother has the same condition and has undergone all the procedures to correct it. They didn't work for him. Additional medication is not an option due to the RA meds Terry takes and his Kidney condition. We both agreed not to opt for the surgery which if it works might relieve Terry's fatigue and shortness of breath. But it probably won't because those two conditions are also caused by Terry's other illnesses. As long as he remains on the meds the doc prescribed when he left the hospital he should be fine.
So. there you go. Our life in a nutshell. My plans for the next month are to sew and later bake. Christmas is only a month away!! If you feel like it, please share one of your favorite Christmas Dinner recipes on your own blog. I think my next blog post will include mine.
