Last week I told you how hard the recovery has been but that I was excited because it was the day to come off the awful drug and start looking forward to real recovery. Well, it didn't quite go that way. With in 36 hours of stopping the drug I was so sick I didn't know what to do. I wound up calling my doctor in Arkansas who called me 3 times that day to follow me and put me back on the drug again. I had to take it every day for a few more days, now I'm taking it every other day. I was very sick and in a lot of pain and needing pain relief drugs that I hadn't taken for a while. Here's hoping I won't go through that again. The doctor thinks perhaps I had some kind of viral infection that added to the problem because some of the symptoms I had aren't things they usually see with brain surgery patients. LOL, leave it to me to come up with something exciting!
The day I got very sick my sister Lauren was visiting from Hong Kong for a week. It was great to have her here, and very good to have her here that particular day because she helped me do the one errand I really wanted to do on Friday before my symptoms had gotten really bad while I was doing them, we went to Tiny Stitches during Shop Hop so I could find the right green fabric for the sashing in the quilt. I found it pretty quick, got to say hello to Maetha and Melinda who were of course both working and get out of there in what might have been my quickest visit to Tiny Stitches in my whole life.
I came home and napped. I haven't had the opportunity to do more cutting and sewing but I will do it as I can. I bought a full yard of the fabric so that I could have some to do binding with which will be good, I think, since this green (which looks blue to some people) matches the green in the focus fabric quite well.
