A Couple of Updates

I haven't mentioned my mother lately, so I thought I would give a little update on her. She is 86 now and slowing down in the things she is able to do. She is still able to attend church every Sunday, but other than that is pretty much home bound.

This week she is in the hospital with kidney function problems. We are hopeful that the doctor can stop the rise in her creatinine levels so that she doesn't have to go on dialysis. For three weeks now the level has hovered around 6 and so her doctor is highly recommending dialysis if the number doesn't come down in the next 2 or 3 days. We could really use your good thoughts and prayers right now! Dialysis would place a great burden on Mama and we are hoping and praying to avoid it.

I will be scarce on the internet this week, both in posting on my blogs and leaving comments. But, I wanted to show you the finished "Razzle Dazzle" quilt. I apologize to those who may have already seen this quilt on my quilting blog.

I can't for the life of me get the pictures on my camera to download to the computer, so I had to settle for these taken with my camera phone, and then sent to my email address.

It was very windy when I was trying to take the pictures.




I hope all of you have a great week. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and prayers. I will give another update on Mama when more is known.
