Anthony's thyroid is barely working, one side is enlarged. As a result, he is having seizures (3 yesterday with 2 being an hour long) because his body isn't absorbing enough of the meds. I was supposed to have foot surgery today but have postponed it until April 14th due to my son's medical issues.

I've been stitching on the Castles in the Air and am actually caught up.  I also decided to change all the beads our for others and have finished up to Part to wait on the next section.

Oh and I bought my first laptop last Friday! Walmart had an awesome deal on an emachine for $297!!!  It is not a netbook either. It has more memory then my computer @ work. I'm loving being on the comfy cough and internet too!!

Here are close ups of Part 9

I haven't worked on the Pansy Sampler SAL in awhile. I got ahead and then didn't know what to do. I believe that everyone may have moved on to other projects. I may try to figure out some of the directions this weekend.

WOW your stitching is coming along beautiful.
Your pansy hardanger piece is too.... I need to pull mine out and see if I can salvage it somehow.

Prayers for yours and your sons medical issues to soon be resolved.
