I enjoyed my time away on a Quilting Retreat with my guild. The above photos aren’t all I got up to, but 1 item is a secret sewing, Round Robin for 2022, one I forgot to get a photo of, and the 3rd items isn’t far along.

I haven’t knitted anymore on the EC’s dress since I don’t remember when!

Update: Diva is likely going to have to just stay put. She was up too much and things started up again. She is going to check with the Dr on Thursday to see if there is a med to help relieve the cramping and discomfort. But baby is AOK! My Mom is out of the hospital, on no oxygen and getting better every day. My Dad has a return of C-Diff and a UTI. It’s a never ending cycle. I am better and just getting a twice a day dose of steroid inhaler for my lungs. But my sat is up to 97%, so PTL!!! Thank you again for all the prayers. We so appreciate them.

To-Do Tuesday

Last Week: There really wasn’t a last week, so I am starting from scratch. But I did manage to start a guild challenge on Friday and finish it on Sunday. 

This WeeK:

  1. Pack for Retreat
  2. Go to Retreat
  3. Sew at Retreat
  4. Have fun at Retreat
  5. Come home from Retreat rested and rejuvinated
  6. Pray for Diva and the baby

At this point they feel Diva’s issues are Uterine Iratibility. There are several causes and no real solution. The meds they have her on wear out after 5 hours and take an hour to cover the pain once her 6 hour dosage is applied. So, she is not having a good time right now. But if it means baby is going to stay put a little/long while we are prepared to help her through this stage. It’s a lot better than expecting the baby to come anyway, but there is still that possibility. So we wait. Continued prayers are VERY welcome! We will get through this with grace from God, and appreciate the intersessions on our behalf. Diva told me the other day she felt the prayers and good thoughts, no doubt in her mind.

As of the time of this writing, Monday afternoon, she was going to be weaned off the meds to see what happens with the cramping. Hopefully at the time you are reading this we have a better understanding of what the rest of the pregnancy may look like. Fingers crossed the uterine cramping subsides. Thank you!
