Judy L's UFO Challenge

Catching Up!!

My hubby's body must know when my quilt guild meetings are.
I attended the meeting on the 4th. It was great! We were shown a demo on QTC's or as I know them ATC's. Artist's trading cards. At the end of the presentation we were all allowed to choose one from a tray to keep.

Show and tell was wonderful as well. Here are some of the challenge round robin quilts and other quilts shared.

So why the comment about hubby? Throughout the meeting my phone was ringing like crazy. It was my daughter calling. I texted her telling her I was in a meeting hoping she would text back to tell me what was going on. She did not. She chose to call and call. I thought it couldn't be that important.
The joke was on me. When I finished at the meeting I called her to see what was up. She informed me that dh was in extreme pain and needed to go to the ER. I told them don't wait on me because 4 hours was too long to wait. The neighbor took him. He was having such severe cramping that he was screaming in pain. According to my neighbor he was scaring the nurses with his screams. They gave him a shot of demerol but it didn't help. They finally gave him an antianxiety pill. That relaxed him to and allowed the demerol to do it's job.
I was dealing with an eye infection and did not feel comfortable driving that night so I got up and drove home first thing in the a.m. It was the kids last day of school. They slept at home and managed to get themselves up and to the neighbors so that they could get a ride to school. I got home and worked a little while then reached dh.
I am not going to go into all the details but basically he was admitted for 9 days. The docs spent that time to fine tune his meds. We expressed our stress over the cramping that did not seem to happen when he was in the hospital. No one could explain it but I think all that is resolved. He is still deferred from the transplant list until he can have some testing at the end of July. Hopefully all will be resolved. Unfortunately his MELD score that tells where he is on the list is even higher. I hope he can stay out of the hospital until the actual transplant. He does seem to be managing much better.

Love the feathered Star as the center of a RR. Hope DH is doing better. That was a scare. My new buddy from WASIQ Retreat at Leavenworth made that same Feathered Star while there for her cousin. Made it look EASY, hahahaha

I can't even imagine what your stress level is right now. I hope things go better for your husband until his transplant testing and I hope you are getting some rest for yourself.

Wow! Is he maybe getting dehydrated at home? Not drinking enough water? Try Gatorade for him. Hope things get better and I will keep you all in my prayers!

Man, I'm so sorry to hear that he was in the hospital again! I'm sure that this is extremely difficult with you working so far from home. I hope that he can come through the testing and get on the transplant list without anymore hitches! {{{HUGS}}} to you!!!
