    I posted about 2 months ago that I was looking for "hospital" themed fabric for my grandson. He was scheduled for open-heart surgery this month. Joanie2 so thoughtfully sent me a piece with elephants and giraffes in pajamas with bandaids scattered around! I've attached 2 photos of the quilt and the sock monkey I made, with a repaired heart tucked into a velcro pocket on his chest. The best part - the doctors did a heart catherization procedure, a much less invasive procedure, and discovered no problems! The original echocardiogram evidently was in error. He was born with Tetrology of Fallot, a deformed heart and had major surgery when he was 6 months old and blue, to reconstruct his heart. Today is my husband's 70th birthday and he said this news was the best present ever!

    when my first Grandson was born at 29 weeks gestation he was 2# 11oz I made a quilt for his incubator they used it to cover it for darkness...I'm happy to say his stay was 53 days and he has been gaining ever since... he is now 16 months now and a great joy to our lives...my fondest picture is the one with the quilt over the incubator!!!
