I'm Back,

Sort of.

I thought I'd take a second and check in and let you know that I'm still breathing. Apparently the pneumonia was not pneumonia, but a symptom of something else that ails me. What that is, we're not so sure. Sometimes I breathe very clearly, and sometimes I gasp for breath. When the quilt show is over, I'll concentrate on discovering the root cause. For now, I will behave myself and slow down when breathing gets tight.

You know how I've whined about no daffodils in my garden? I must have whined a lot. Pat brought me some from her garden, while I was in the hospital. (Yeah, I know. The lengths I stoop to, to get attention!)

Aren't they gorgeous?!! I've had them since Thursday, and they're still as fresh today as they were then. I've never known daffodils to last so long!

While I was sitting in the ER, waiting for a room, I got mail. The nurses were flabbergasted. "No one gets mail in the ER!! How did anyone know you were here?!!" Well, I had to tell my Committee where I was, didn't I? I couldn't just disappear on them...

This happy Black-eyed Susan was made by Linda.

I wasn't there long, and when I got home, this was waiting for me.

It's a trunk of Navy Challenge Quilts, which will be on exhibit at the show.

And finally, this beauty from Sara swam into my mailbox on Saturday.

I am SO spoiled!!!

I thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes. God is listening, because I am still here. I'm not sure what He has in mind for me to accomplish, but I'm still here, so there must be something left for me to do.

And on that, I'll carry on.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, my friends!!! You're the best!

I hope you feel better soon, Suzanne. Breathing problems are miserable. My husband gets pneumonia at the drop of a hat.

I sure hope they figure out what's wrong. Stay strong!
