Living Again

Today I got an email from the sewing store where I buy most of my machines and where I go to most of my classes.  They also have clubs there now, too.  They needed a 3rd person in order to hold a class; otherwise they’d have to cancel the last class this year.  So I signed up for a PED-Next class next month on the 6th and the 13th for 4 hours each day.  It’s software training.  I previously went to the first class a year ago when I was so sick with a major cold/sinus infection.  I barely made it through the first class.  I had a temperature, sneezing, blowing my nose.  My head was so stopped up I couldn’t even think. But I knew I wanted to go back and do it right.  Now I have that chance.  While I’m there I’m going to join some other classes and clubs to keep me busy and learning new things.  I love that!……….Very excited to get back into it.  I also paid off my Coverpro machine today so all my sewing machines and equipment are free and clear.  I’m working toward buying the Brother Quattro II in 2013 so I’ve got a lot to learn to get there.  I’ve been coveting that machine for a couple of years; it’s about time to go for it!  My financial advisor said I would have enough money in 2013 to purchase the $6000 machine.  I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow I go pick up my new retainers then I’m planning on coming home and going into the sewing room.  I need to get the things organized that I want to do first.  I’ll have to move machines around, remember how to rethread the surgers, etc., so I can make a few blankets and get my self back in the groove.  I got a cortisone shot in my shoulder so won’t have to worry about that joint for a few months.  Tomorrow I’ll be free of the orthodontist again for a while, too.

My mother-in-law is still on a ventilator in the ICU at a Houston hospital.  Ronnie is still going up there every day but he is exhausted.  Her heart, now without the external pacemaker, is doing better now that they have amputated her leg but they can’t disconnect the oxygen because she can’t get enough oxygen into her lungs by herself.  And her o2 saturation is falling more every day.  She’s barely getting enough o2 to her brain not to cause brain damage.  Right now it’s just hurry up and wait.  They’re hoping she takes a massive swing to the better side soon and are not planning on changing anything until Monday (it’s Thursday now).  We’re all sending her and her family the best but she may never come out of this coma.
