Among the missing...

I know I've neglected my poor bloggy-blog but I have good reason. My mama's been sick. This picture is from her big whoppin' 80th birthday party about a year and a half ago.

She's having trouble with her gallbladder, and infection and ulcers. She's on lots of meds to kill the infection and if all goes well, in about two weeks, they'll do arthroscopic surgery to remove her gallbladder. I went to visit this weekend and stayed with her while my sister Virginia ran errands for groceries and mom's medications. She's doing pretty good right now but she's getting some side effects from the prescriptions. And oh, those prescriptions! Virginia and I did up a schedule of what to take when. It's crazy. It looks like some Special Ops plan for the military!! Boy, it's a toughie when our parents are sick and we are from the "working class".
I will be going back with my older sister to visit this weekend. We're having to cancel out of going to Road to CA, our major huge CA quilt show but missing it because of mom is a pretty good reason.
I hope I will have something quilty to share with you all sometime soon. Til then, keep those machines a hummin'!!!

Oh, Liz, I'm so sorry. Hope your mom is up and running again quickly. I know what Road means to you, too. Take care of and be good to yourself!

Sorry to hear about your mom, glad she is getting better...some things are just more important than quilts (mind you...not too many things).
