I am not able to participate this round. I did start the stars and bars the last round, however, life happens.

In August, our sweet little dog, Jackson, jumped out of my husband’s truck window. He broke his right front leg and has nerve damage in the left front leg. They inserted a plate in the right front leg and it seems to be healing well. We will know more when they take X-rays 8 weeks post surgery. He won’t use the left leg. He “knuckles” when he does put it down. But mostly he tries to keep in up in the air. We are taking him to rehab and they think he is making progress. But he requires constant supervision so he doesn’t jump, fall or twist in some way that damages the broken leg before it heals.

Then, three weeks ago, my DD forgot she hasn’t played volleyball since high school (more than a decade ago). She dove for a loose ball and broke her left arm. She’s moved back home so that I can be her left arm when needed (like contact lenses and getting dressed). And sometimes when not necessary but just because I don’t mind fixing her breakfast or grabbing a beverage out of the fridge. She is able to work. Her colleagues have been great about helping get things done. Like giving injections. She’s a small animal veterinarian.

And in comparison it doesn’t seem to be as big a deal, but in August, I had to have an intramuscular lipoma removed from my upper right arm. It’s healing nicely, but I still don’t have full strength. Sewing for any period of time causes some pain.

I will watch this thread to see what everyone does with the theme.

Praying for everyone impacted by Ian.

Hugs,
Beverly

Oh my goodness Beverley! What at time you have had! Hope you are healing well and your daughter & Jackson too!

A table runner is certainly not your focus just now! Looking forward to seeing your projects for the next runner swap! Take care!

Yes we are good! It's definitely "home" now, and I love the changing leaves - I even have red leaves! Those trees didn't grow up north due to cold temps, so I haven't had red leaves since I left home in my 20's! That's quite a bit ago! lol
We are closer to our kids & their families and only a 1.5hr drive to family cottage instead of 10hrs! It's been a really good summer & now I'm trying to gear up for winter (but it won't last 6 months here!) woohoo!

Thanks, everyone. It’ll get crazy, and I’ll get a little cranky, but everyone is healing.

Hi Beverley,

So sorry you have been through so much... but watch from the sidelines this time and jump back in when you are all fit and well again.

Hugs

Caroline
