Happy Dance

No surgery for me!

Yay!
(well, not now anyway)

However, nothing can be done for the nerve damage.
Which kind of sucks.
Not the answer I wanted,
but having answers is comforting in a way.
He believes my nerve damage is a combination of trauma (car accident) , possibly years of working around farm chemicals, maybe MS.

MS.
 not totally ruled out at this point.
(I saw a neurologist about this several years ago and she said I did not have MS at that time)

Que sera sera.

I had an MRI a couple weeks ago...

I saw my doctor at the pain clinic last week.  
(I have to say I love him, he is like a tall, skinny, kinda nerdy Marcus Welby)
(Does anyone remember Marcus Welby? )
Have been having neck issues again, losing feeling in my hands.

Not good news.

Meeting with Dr Davis tomorrow.
He is the neurosurgeon that fused my spine. 
I don't know if he will recommend surgery or not.
But thinking they wouldn't refer me directly to the surgeon if something is up.

I doubt I will sleep a wink tonight.

Mermaid tail!

I made a mermaid tail blanket for my great niece. 
Hope Miss G loves it. 
I didn't have a pattern, just winged it.
Love how it turned out.
Her mom requested it as a birthday gift,
 but she is so excited, she said she might have to give it early!

I made this little  pillow for my niece for Christmas.
(i took the pic before I stitched the bottom closed.)

I love how it turned out. 
:)  
I should sew more now that I am unemployed retired.

My latest finish

A pink, gray, and white afghan for my soon-to-arrive great niece :)  
I used Caron simply soft yarn, 100% acrylic so it will be nice and soft and easy care

April? really?

My last post was in April.
Oh my!
If I was younger I could have made a baby in all that time. 

But I didn't.
I made some baby afghans instead.
I made this custom baby blanket for the granddaughter of a friend. 
Used this pattern

(love love love Lucy's wonderful blos!)
and some thick washable acrylic yarn, I love how it turned out.
Piper is all warm and cozy now.
