Had a visit with the Ortho Surgeon yesterday. He took more x-rays of the arm and said it’s looking great! There is new bone growth where the original tumor was and the rod/pin is still tight in the bone! He was pleased with the mobility … even though I’m not totally pleased on that count. He and his staff always make me feel good. They always remind me that God is the greatest healer. Never underestimate the power of prayer!
When I parked at the office today, there was a gorgeous Yellow-Shafted Norther Flicker in the pecan tree. If you’re not familiar with birds, this is a big guy…about 12″ tall with a little spot of orangy-red on the back of his head, a black bib, a spotted belly and gold/black striped wings. They have long heavy bills and pointy tails. Really pretty birds and a blessing to see.
Ernie had dinner ready when I got home, so we were done in the kitchen earlier than normal. We watched a movie and I managed to bind most of a little quilt. I’ll finish and post pictures tomorrow. I have 1 more of the NYE Mystery quilts to bind! I’ll have to pull out more quilt tops to load on the machine this weekend :-) or I won’t have any hand quilting to work on next week! Gotta get these quilts done and out of here…they’re not doing anyone any good stacked in the sewing studio.
