Tuesday night, again

I am now back at the hotel. I left Henry at the hospital with Dad. Judy went home for a break. Henry might go home tomorrow depending on how Dad's doing. He was doing much better today, comparatively speaking. His white blood cell count is dropping but the numbers in his renal panel are not looking so hot. I don't really know how much the dialysis is helping at this point. Surely, it's doing something! We have not seen a kidney doc in 3 days now. We're told they probably see him in dialysis since there are some notes in his chart. It's like pulling teeth to get information from some of the nurses if we happen to miss the docs.

The pictures on today's blog show a little wallhanging I made for a friend who had a bout with cancer several years ago. I found the pattern in a Pink Ribbon book, the name of which escapes me now and, since I'm not home, I can't go look it up. It was very easy to do. I'm sure I used fusible bonding on the petals and leaves and hand appliqued them onto the background.

I need to get to sleep. I had (have) a monster sinus headache. I'm sure it's weather-related since it rained all day.

I don't comment very often but I've been keeping up with your blog. I know how exhausted you must be trying to be there for your dad during this long hospitalization. Hang in there.

All the best wishes for a speedy recovery to your dad.
