Good Morning Friends!
It's been long long week at the Queen house. Dear hubby has been fighting a really nasty cold all week. I can't remember the last time he was sick. Seriously. He never gets sick. It's been years and years. Now me, on the other hand, I catch every bug that even comes within a city block of me. I can already feel the first symptoms of a cold trying to attach to my body. I've been dosing myself with zinc losenges and using the "Netti Pot" to rinse my sinuses. People tell me both methods will fight off off a cold so I've been preparing for battle!
Our dear granddaughter has been in the hospital all week and finally got to go home last night. She still has pneumonia and they are waiting for test results to come back for Kawasaki Disease. Meanwhile, the doctor thought she would rest more at home where things aren't so frightening. She didn't need the I.V. system anymore so they let her go home. She has to go back daily to have her lungs checked and make sure she's not getting worse again. BUT, it's a praise that she got to go home again! God is good. All the time.
I have managed to get a little crocheting and knitting done this week, but not a lot. The first picture are more baby hats for the local hospital. They are lavendar-not pink. I'm not sure why they look pink!
I just began crocheting a blanket for a friend in a nursing facility. She's not even 50 years old and it gets a bit depressing for her there. I thought a colorful blanket might bring some cheer to her room. She's hoping to make enough progress to be able to get her own apartment someday soon and the blanket would be useful there too. I want to make it fairly large so I think it may take me awhile.
Hubby wants to take me out to dinner this weekend to celebrate my birthday. Hopefully we'll both be healthy enough! I don't want to spread my germs to others. I'm thinking Applebees. What do you think? They have healthy options and I'm still trying to shed some pounds. Only about 50 lbs. to go!!!! Applebees has entrees that contain Weight Watcher points so you know what is okay to eat and what to avoid.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I thank you all for your prayers for our little granddaughter. We're hoping she's on the road to recovery and will be up and running around again very soon.
