Scrap Happy Saturday

I'm off to Atlanta this weekend to hang with Mom.  She had the surgery to put in a port before chemotherapy starts next week.  I'll try to check out everyone's work, though I won't be getting in any sewing done at all.  I've loaded a new book on my i-pad for the flight.  It is by Emilie Richards who writes the Shenendoah Valley series which has quilting as a background sort of theme.  There is a new Jennifer Chiaverini as well if I finish that one off.  \

I think perhaps I have sewn enough green for this month! I am not sure if I will do anymore. Maybe I just need a few days to think about it - the green monster was a big one!
Happy stitching!

Warm thoughts are going your way for you and your Mom during this difficult time. Nice to have an IPad for distraction.

I'll be keeping you and your Mom in my thoughts and prayers. Our four-year-old grandson was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year. He pretends his port is a button for special powers. He is in remission right now --but we have 2 1/2 more years of treatment before we can relax. (a little) I hope your mother's doctors are as terrific as George's. The Hershey Medical Center in PA has the most knoledgeable and kind group of Doctors, Nurses, Technitions etc. Every day when we pray for George and his friends at the clinic, we also thank God for the talented staff that makes our journey more bearable.

I am thinking of your Mother and you. I get very emotional thinking of cancer, especially concerning someone's parent or child, and am teary-eyed now as I write this. I know what an ordeal it is. ((HUGS)) to you and your Mother.

I hope you were able to bring some comfort to your mom this weekend. I am thinking of her and your family as you go through this challenge. I bet she will love receiving the pink quilt.

I hope that your week-end with your mom was good as possible for such a quick trip. I hope that she is doing well and that her chemo goes well. Was just thinking, with all the spring breaks going on that I hope there is one in your future, and not the working kind. With the new position, your mom's medical treatments, and just being a working mom with carpool duty and all that goes along with keeping the home fires burning, you certainly deserve some you time.
