We had to cancel our trip to Oregon because my DH has been sick. We kept thinking he would get better in time to travel, but instead, he kept getting sicker. I had to take him to the ER and he was admitted. We found out that he has sick sinus syndrome (bradycardia), which means that the portion of his heart that controls the electrical impulses wasn't working right and his heart rate would go real low (sometimes as low as 38). So, tomorrow he is having a pacemaker installed. Hopefully, that will make big improvements in how he feels.
We felt so bad having to cancel our trip, but maybe we can reschedule it in a month or so. I mailed the wall hanging and also the potholder pictured below . My DIL's sister gave me the "pig" fabric to make something for my DIL (she is fond of pigs). I had been wanting to try out this potholder pattern, and I'm glad I did. It was quite easy to make and will make a nice gift for other friends also.
I have been staying at the hospital most of the time, but I have my Polka Dot Girls stitchery to keep me occupied.
