I did get a little hand quilting in on the bear paw before heading to school for the fall concert from the hs bands last night. Hard to believe they are 9 weeks into the school year!
It was a day of texting Tuesday. They finally transferred my FIL to another hospital where they had staff to do the upper and lower gi to find the internal bleeding. That is scheduled for today.
Then, lots of texts with my siblings as my Mom took Dad to the ER around midnight with chest pains, breathing issues and swelling in legs. Yup, he is in hospital and had a minor heart attack. No damage and waiting on a bed in another hospital for a transfer to do a heart catheter today.
Any prayer or good thought for both, would be appreciated.

I'm happy to report a finish this week! These blocks got their cross hatching hand quilted this week.

17 years ago today, we said ' I do'. I never wanted a big wedding and Greg was good with us eloping! So, we booked a vacation with Sandals in St. Lucia and they threw in a wedding if you stayed for 7 days!

My FIL is continuing to improve. I'll head over with Greg tomorrow for the kid drop off and to see him in the hospital since I have tomorrow off. I hear we may go out to lunch..... it will be our 17th Wedding anniversary after all!

Monday was a long day and not a single stitch was stitched!
Greg left with the kids in the morning around 7:20 and he did not get home until after 8:30PM last night. He had a very long day. His Dad had a procedure or two before a late afternoon surgery to break down and remove most of the stone in his kidney. A stint is in place for the remaining bits to flow out. This morning, he is in no pain, which is a good thing. He will have a bit of a recovery to get his strength back, but he is in good hands.
Turns out, Greg did not tell the kids what was going on with his Dad while I was gone! They are updated now. I got the kid pickup and errand running yesterday after a crazy day at work. On the way back from getting Emily we saw this beautiful sunset. I pulled over to get this shot.
Then we got a text from Aidan asking when the heck we were getting home! It was after 7:30 and I left to get her for a 6:40 pick up. We did hit Doller Tree to get a poster board she needed for school today and Publix to get a few things.
Turns out.... the chickens escaped their area and he had just fixed the zip tie they undid and secured it before getting them all back where they belonged.
I forgot to bring the headphones with wires to listen to my audio book on the plane, so I quickly hit the store before boarding Thursday and grabbed this book to read on the plane. It has been forever since I have read an actual book - audio books while driving or doing things around the house are the only way I can read lately. It was nice to hold a book in my hands. This is a really good book too. I'd recommend it. I am about halfway through.

It was an uneventful trip home. The plane just landed about 30 minutes late with the head wind and we left a little late from NY. Arrived home around 9:20 last night. Greeted at the door by Bear the dog, then Greg, then Emily .... then a boy with a big smile since Mom was home!
Greg dropped the kids to school and has been over at the hospital with his Dad. Well, his Dad has been moving to procedures and we think he might have gone right from the procedures to surgery. He has not come back to his room yet. Still waiting on an update.
Work is a little crazy this morning as well. I did get to go out and check the girls out back with Bear around lunchtime.
