Dunkin is still waiting

Dunkin is still waiting for Daddy to come home

not yet buddy!  he still has to improve more before they will release him

the nursing home has been great. He is eating a little and they are taking him each day
for a little exercise 
he is not steady on his feet yet
and the sugar is not regulated enough yet

he has a pill and insulin 3x a day
we will find out all about it after the holiday

he gets very tired and sleepy and I guess
the sugar is tough to regulate for him

we are hoping that this new chapter of our lives
will enable us to catch on quickly
and do what we have to do

I faint at the sight of needles so this will
certainly be a test
and hubs is not thrilled either
not sure if a visiting nurse is an option
it may be very expensive and
we both need to be able to do it

I have not worked on much except a little sewing here and 
there making zip bags for my gift box.

I took out the turkey apron to get er done
and finished the potholder. I dont like the way they 
left the raw edges so I am going to cut out
an apron in muslin to finish mine better

once that is done, Mr Tom for the table 
should be in line next to be worked on
I am just doing the little spurts to put zippers in
the bags and got three more done today

I wont show all of them. you saw the piecing of them before
I am trying hard to get everything done 
around here and visit with hubs too
some days life gets really hard but
I get strength from knowing that God
would not leave me with too much to handle.
together he and I have this.

be patient and soon I will hopefully be able to 
show more quilting projects done
have a great day everyone!

Hugs and prayers sweetie. You both can do this. I am lucky I do not have to do the insulin, which is why I do the crazy strict diet. It still sucks to have to poke your finger every morning to test.

Am sending many hugs and prayers to you. I know you will find your way through this. glad DH is coming along. As my Mom used to tell me "you are stronger than you think". Hugs, Julierose

Many gentle hugs to you both. I don't like needles either, but I give them (blood thinners in the stomach) - you will be amazed at what you can handle.
