my banner embroidery work. I had yet to sew the strand down and next  buttons if I choose to. I love the looks of it.

Heart surgery

Hello been a long couple of weeks I went to the hospital on October 19 they did a triple bypass. .I was in ICU for 4days then moved to a new floor where I spent another 5 days. I was release from Akron General on the 28th of October.
 I am slowly  dropping meds.  I hope soon to be on just a couple .They have dropped 5  already.
I have no real pain to speak of some swelling my leg  from the vein they used to make the bypass with. I am slowly losing the black and blue or bruises. My incision looks great  so they tell me. .There was talk of repairing the aorta but after seeing  it decided it was not all that bad so if it ain't broke do fix it. I am so thankful to be home and on the mend. I am able to go up stairs and down but it is very slow for me at this time. My sewing is in my basement so I was able to go down and see the mess I had left. But I brought some hand work up when I came back to main floor. Some embroidery I had started a couple years ago a cute Lesley Boost pattern  A Christmas banner . I got it finished . I hope to hang it in front of the fireplace. such a cute project. I plan to find my  cover buttons and make 6 covered buttons to sew in between the squares. But I might also use snowflakes buttons instead.
I will get the picture upload and posted soon. In the mean while I am happy to be alive and home once again!!
