Surgery update

Well, DH had the surgery yesterday and came through just fine. They did find cancer that had spread to his bladder, so a bit more surgery was needed. The good news is they got it all!! He "may" have to do chemo, that is still up I. The air for the time being. He needs to fully recover from this surgery first. He did well last night & is back to himself today. He made a short video on the IPad for the grandkids so they'll k ow where he is. These IPads are wonderful.

I brought a table runner & a throw sized quilt, both Halloween themed, to work on. I hadn't planned to hand quilt them but I need something to do while he's in the hospital, which will be about a week if all goes well. Between the 2 quilts & this IPad, I'm staying busy & keeping up with the rest of the world.

The only down side so far is that this weekend is our youngest grandsons birthday, he turns 4 and we will miss it somewhat. We can always have another party once DH gets back home. I finished the owl quilt about a month ago for grandsons birthday, it's shown in a previous post.

Anyway, so far, so good on the surgery & recovery. I'm keeping a diary of sorts of the whole ordeal. More updates later, both on the post op & on the quilt progress. Stay tuned . . .

  1. It is wonderful that the surgery was a success. I hope everything goes well with his recovery and future treatments. It does help to have the quilting there to take your mind off things, but I hope you don't have to do it too much.
