Finished T-Shirt Quilt

Published by at 1:25 pm under friends,health

I had the t-shirt quilt finished and put a label on the back so my friend would always know who put it together for her. I just needed to get together with her and give her the quilt! Easier said than done. We both work full time and our evenings are full of have to do stuff. On the spur of the moment, I called her last night and she said to come over. She gave me the reaction I hoped for. She really liked it.


Hubby and I have been going over to his mom’s house every 3-4 hours. She has been so sick. We ended up taking her to the ER last Thursday night. They hooked up one of those industrial pumps. At least it looked like one! and got her hydrated. After being so sick, it seemed as though she became dehydrated. We can’t have that so, hubby and I go over to make sure she is eating and drinking. She had an ultra sound on Monday and it showed nothing wrong. In fact, she is a very healthy 85 year old. After another test on Thursday, I hope they figure out what is causing her to vomit all the time. She is getting tired of not feeling well. She is a busy gal and does not like being confined to bed. Prayers are welcomed.

      I’m sorry to hear that your mother is having a hard time. As long as she hydrates and rests that should help. As a side note – that quilt is not only beautiful, but a great idea, too.

      That is really cool! I’ve been saving T’s softball t-shirts since she played t-ball, hoping one day to make one of these.

      Give your MIL a big hug from us, we hope she gets to feeling better really soon.

      Wow, I love quilting. but I hope your mom gets better. I admire you and your husband. You really seem to care for your mom. I hope I am not mistaken but I always got feedback that Americans seems to careless now a days with their old for the reason that they are much very busy.

      Has she been checked out for gallbladder problems? What about intestinal obstruction?
      Best luck.
