Again bad news and two finishes


Today I had to get back to the hospital for an inspection and well I didn't get very good new. The room between my ankle and leg is to wide and the have to set the screws again and that will happen tomorrow with a new operation in the morning (at least it is planned that way). We will see how late the operation will take place and I will keep you up to date thursday. The weeks will count again starting tomorrow, so I still have 6 weeks again in front of me with no standing on that foot.

Yesterday I have been quilting on "Lentekriebels"and I have been stitching this past week on Nature's Home afghan and I have finished two blocks, only two more to go. This block 29 and 30, now only left to do are block 26, 27 and 28

Oh dear Judith I am so sorry. How frustrating for you to have to have surgery again. Hope this time it is successful. Your nature afghan is beautiful.

O Judith,

Wat een vervelend nieuws. Maak je maar op voor 6 weken borduren en quilten. Parasol in de tuin of op balkon en jij met je been omhoog. ik zal aan je denken!

Dat is inderdaad geen goed nieuws. Hopelijk komt het nu wel in orde. En nog 6 weken te gaan: veel quilten en computeren! Sterkte!

Oh Judith, I’m sorry you have so much bad luck. I hope this surgery will solve the problem and that you can start recovering from there on!

I am so sorry to hear that you have to go through that again. Look on the bright side, you'll have lots of time to stitch, read, watch TV, surf the internet etc.

My husband needs to have an ankle fusion done. He has severe degenerative arthritis in his right ankle. Like you, he has to have screws put in to fuse the bones together. He will be in a cast for 3 months, and will not be able to put any weight on it for the 1st 6 weeks or so. I think I should teach him how to stitch. I will also be buying him some sudoku books as he enjoys that.
