Thanks for the good wishes.
Blood tests and CT scan came back clear. Hooray!
Next blood test is three months away, then another blood test and CT scan in six months, etc.
Now I can focus on other things.
To our cousins across the Tasman, we are thinking of you, particularly those in and around Christchurch. Christchurch is devastated, many are dead, many more are homeless. We love to pick on Kiwis (just like big brothers and sisters pick on smaller siblings) but we will stand with you when the chips are down.
I am thinking of making up a quick quilt or two with some of the stash I have (then I am allowed to buy more fabric! Hoooray!) to send across to NZ. Never fear, it will take me a good month to get one done. I have some good ideas for some pretty quick things, like this quilt Melody is making. I have some strips of fabric all ready cut and could get a top together easily enough and a back, it is just getting the quilting done that is hard! But such a quilt would be quilted with straight (ok, I will admit it, WONKY) lines and that makes it a little easier to get done. I want to do something to help, though I didn't for the earlier quake and I couldn't do much for the Queensland floods (since DH went potty at the same time, not to the loo for you Americans but barmy, mad, loopy, and I had too little time and too much to do).
Pictures of current makings will follow - it has been a weird few days of much too cold weather for this time of year. We have to expect whackiness more and more often with climate change.
