Tuesday already!

One more long night in the hospital. After staying awake over 48 hours, Dad finally fell asleep at 2 a.m. This was five hours after they gave him Xanax! Maybe that's how long it took his body to assimilate it. Actually, about an hour and a half after they gave it to him, you could tell he was a little more relaxed. But, those eyes of his just would not give it up. His speech had become so slurred that we couldn't understand him. It's 9:30 in the morning now and he's still asleep. He barely stirred when all the morning personnel started coming in. We'll let him sleep until about 10 a.m.

We now know that he has an infection. They've had the Infectious Disease doctor come in to look at him and review his chart and they started him on antibiotics. As of this morning, his white blood count had dropped, which is good. Dad's been coughing a very productive cough. I hope that means something good, too. We're here for a while longer, but I can hear it in the doctors' voices that they're ready for him to get better and get out of here.

Here are a couple more quilts for your pleasure. :-)

These wallhangings were made for golfers. duh...lol The male golfer was made for my son from a commercial pattern. I knew I wanted to make a female version for a friend's granddaughter so I had to draft the girl to fit her into the picture. I'm very happy with the results.

Veronica I love your golf quilts. I hope Dad gets all his issues resolved. It is no fun not knowing what is going on. Went through this last year with dh. He is considerably better now which helps us avoid the hospital. You mentioned Lubbock. Where are you located?

I've been catching up on all my blogging friends, and just read all your posts about your Dad. What an experience! I will keep you and your family in my thoughts.
