I went to my post-op appt to see the surgeon. I have had some side effects from the removal of the cyst/lump. There is a bit of confusion because what was removed was not a lymph node, but my arm and hand on that side are swelling and having pain and numbness much like a patient that did have one removed...sooo...hmmmm. My poor husband will now get to see me put on my big boot for my plantar fasciitis and a interesting sleeve that I will now wear to bed. I am contemplating actually putting on my retainer at night to complete the sexy look.
The good news? I asked Dr. Q if I needed to increase or decrease any activities and he said.
Exciting!! Doctor's orders to actually quilt!?!??!
First on the docket.
My do. Good Stitches quilt for July 2012.
(er *cough* a little late)
I have been scribbling on my iPad with my Inkpad app.
I can download images and draw over them.
Fun to do while in the waiting room, anyway!
I am conflicted about this quilt. My heart wants to do really fancy custom dense quilting, but my head is saying no. It's purpose is warmth and comfort and not beauty.
I think I found a happy medium. We shall see how it goes!
I am also going to give my new rulers I picked up at the Houston Quilt Show a whirl. I predict some stitch picking and possibly even cursing in my future!
