    Dialysis Quilt

    Our friend, John, has been on dialysis for eighteen years. He declined a kidney transplant, saying that those were for kids and married folks. He seems to be more frail every time I see him. He's always cold, wearing sweatshirts and a stocking hat even during the summer, and so the spousal unit and I decided he needed a quilt. It's nothing really special, nor is my work up to the standards of many (most) of the ladies here, but John loved it, and I guess he's the one that counts!

    The photo of the quilt by itself is kind of funky...don't know why it looks pink, the white is actually white.

    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Very nice quilt. I remember when my mil was on dialysis everyone at the center got cold when doing the dialysis. I wish now that I had been quilting then and had made her a quilt instead of buying her a blanket to wrap up in. I am sure your friend really appreciates you gift.

    What a beautiful quilt Charlee. I love the colors. It's such a good feeling when we do things for others especially the ones who really need and appreciate what we do.

    What a kind hearted thing to do. You can see the pleasure in John's eyes. You made a beautiful gift for a man who made completely unselfish choices, and it will keep his heart warm as well as his body. Thank you.
