Lacy got bumped

The hospital only  schedules 4 “elective” inductions on any given day. I don’t consider it “elective” if there is a medical problem but unfortunately I’m not running things at that hospital. Lacy was bumped by 2 women that had went 42 wks, 1 needed a c section and the last had to have her baby today so she could have gallbladder surgery. Lacy was very disappointed but understood being bumped. Lacy did talk to a nurse who is a Capt. who was very sweet and sympathetic to Lacy and told Lacy she was scheduled tomorrow and could not be bumped again. Lacy calls in the morning to find out what time to be there. So Lacy has 1 more day of pain and I have 1 more day to get things ready for baby Greg. I’m going to take pictures today of all the clothes that boy has. No baby has ever had so many clothes and blankets. I stopped counting blankets at 30. Their friends have been so good to them giving them clothes and blankets and socks. Oh did I mention that Greg won’t need socks until he starts to school?

Have a great day and please keep Lacy and Greg in your prayers tomorrow.

Still here

Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers. Lacy is still not feeling well but since she started taking the meds prescribed to her we have noticed the pain is worse when she sits up to long. Greg has been doing leg kicks and arm stretches from the looks of his mommy’s tummy. Everyone has done their thing at the lab and we will find out if any of us can’t give blood on Friday. Today we have no dr appts. If you would like you can check out my crochet blog to see what I have been doing at the dr office.

Hope everyone is having a great quilting week!

Baby Greg

The doctor is trying to hold Greg in until Jan. 27th as Lacy is so anemic she can not afford to loose any blood, we will all be tested next week to see if our blood can be given to Lacy during delivery. Also, Lacy’s blood pressure shot up almost to stroke level and they are hoping to get that leveled off and stay down. I am reading blogs but replying very little. Sew needless to say my machine is collecting dust. Please keep Lacy and Greg in your prayers and thoughts.

Monday Monday

My plan was to show Greg’s finished zoo animal quilt in this post but I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of it. Lacy had hard cramps all night with spotting on Sunday night. Monday morning she went in and let her doctor check her. Doctor said she was in the very early stages of labor but it could take all week. 😦 If Lacy hasn’t had Greg by Friday she will go back to the doctor. So if you would like to see pictures of the washer, dryer, vacuum, me chasing Nikolas and folded laundry I can help you. 😉 I was just too tired to do anything fun. I need to get ahead on my  quilting post so it don’t look like I feel off the internet. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Fabric for bags

This is the fat qtrs I choose to make yoyo’s for MY bag. I love red! Oh, I just love bright colors.
This fabric will be the lining in my daughter’s bag. Lacy loves pink and flamingos.
I fell in love with this fabric. I will use the roses for the lining for my bag.
I couldn’t find any fabric with cookies or cookie monster on it for Nikolas’s bag, so I chose stars.
