I was at my brother's house most of this past week. He had a very tough week of ongoing health challenges. He was in 3 different hospitals on 4 different days for countless procedures including his second chemo treatment, three blood transfusions (huge hugs and thanks to everyone who donates blood to save lives), four blood tests, a CT scan, two xrays, and a CT guided lung drain procedure. Each hospital outing is an exhausting production involving transporting the wheelchair plus four oxygen tanks to get through the commute and the waiting for procedures/doctors.
We have been enticing him to eat since he has lost so much weight, has lost his appetite and feels nauseous most of the time. This was one of my creative attempts to get him to eat :)
I am on the last round of colour, so it's very close to being finished. It has been a very relaxing and mindless activity to work on.
It was a beautiful day and the quilts were inspiring.
I felt so much better after being surrounded by quilts and fabric and we even met some of our quilting friends there!
You wouldn't believe who else we saw... the Queen was there!
She was lovely to visit with and even had her royal Corgi with her.
Thanks to Barb for encouraging us to attend and for the photos of our outing!
I felt re-energized and ready to be a better caregiver in the coming days.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy some relaxation today. Link up your blog post below and show us your hand stitching project.
