I FINISHED MY FOLKY QUILT......


HERE IT IS!  ALL QUILTED AND BOUND!! 




LAYING ON TOP OF ANOTHER QUILT ON MY BED.


 MY DESIGN USING MOSTLY ANTIQUE TIN 
COOKIE CUTTER SHAPES FOR THE INSPIRATION
FOR THE MOTIFS.


LOOKS NICE WITH MY BIG LOG HOUSE
RUG I HOOKED LAST SPRING/SUMMER.

I'VE STARTED HOOKING A BIG RUG
I DESIGNED AND HAD READY TO GO
BEFORE BRIAN'S SURGERY. IT'S INSPIRED
BY SEVERAL ANTIQUE RUGS. I'LL HAVE
SOME PICS OF THAT SOON!

BRIAN IS DOING WELL.  EACH DAY HE IS
GETTING STRONGER AND HIS PT AND OT
THERAPIES ARE GOING GOOD. HE IS 
LEARNING A LOT OF THINGS TO HELP
HIM LIVE AN INDEPENDENT LIFE WITH
HIS PARALYSIS. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR
ALL OF THE CONTINUED PRAYERS.
THANK YOU AND BLESSINGS TO EACH OF YOU.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

MERRY CHRISTMAS.....


WE HOPE EACH ONE OF YOU HAD A 
BLESSED CHRISTMAS.  WE HAD A NICE
QUIET DAY WITH JUST THE THREE OF US.
ZOE AND BRIAN SNUGGLED ON THE 
NEW RECLINER LIFT CHAIR THAT WAS
DELIVERED LAST WEEK.  BRIAN IS 
GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AT
TRANSFERS FROM HIS WHEELCHAIR.
I JUST SORT OF "SPOT" HIM WHILE HE
SLIDES ON THE TRANSFER BOARD.  I BROUGHT
HIM HOME OVER TWO WEEKS AGO
AND WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO BE HOME
TOGETHER FOR CHRISTMAS.


HIS PT AND OT COME TO THE HOUSE 
AS WELL AS A HOME HEALTH CARE
NURSE.  THE WEATHER HAS TURNED
BITTER COLD SO WE ARE THANKFUL
TO BE ABLE TO STAY AT HOME TO TEND
TO HIS NEEDS FOR NOW.  THERE IS 
A LOT TO DO AND REMEMBER BUT EACH
DAY WE ARE GETTING BETTER AT 
GETTING IT ALL IN.  WE ARE THINKING
OF ADDING A BATHROOM OFF OF THE 
BEDROOM BRIAN IS IN SO ALL OF 
HIS NEEDS WILL BE IN ONE AREA.  
WE GOT HIM A NICE SOLID FULL SIZE
HOSPITAL BED FOR THE BEDROOM AND
A TRAPEZE THAT IS WORKING OUT WELL.

WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR
ALL OF THE PRAYERS.  WE ARE SO TOUCHED
AND THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING US.
WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE LORD
HAS PLANNED BUT WE WILL TRY OUR 
BEST TO SERVE HIM AND ENJOY OUR
LIFE TOGETHER.

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS FROM OUR
HOME TO YOURS......BRIAN, LORI & ZOE

MADE IT TO REHAB!

BRIAN WAS MOVED TO ACUTE REHAB IN WAUSAU, WI ON TUESDAY.  WE LIKE THE FACILITY AND STAFF.  I THINK IT WILL BE A VERY BENEFICIAL TIME FOR BOTH OF US.  I CAME HOME YESTERDAY TO START GETTING THINGS GOING AT HOME.  A TENTATIVE DATE FOR RELEASE FROM REHAB IS DECEMBER 15th.  WE MAY NOT HAVE EVERYTHING IN PLACE AT THE HOUSE BUT WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT AS WE GO ALONG.  I AM GOING TO PICK UP OUR LITTLE ZOE GIRL TODAY.  WE DROPPED HER OFF AT THE KENNEL 36 DAYS AGO.  I HAVE TO DRIVE ALMOST AN HOUR TO GET HER.  IT’S AN HOUR IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OR I WOULD HAVE PICKED HER UP ON THE WAY HOME YESTERDAY.  SHE AND I WILL BE GOING BACK TO WAUSAU NEXT WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.  THEY DO ALLOW PETS THERE SO I CAN BRING HER INTO THE REHAB AND I HAVE A PET FRIENDLY MOTEL BOOKED FOR US ALREADY.  THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF THE PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES.  WE FINALLY SEE A LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS  VERY LONG TUNNEL.  WE KNOW THERE WILL BE A LOT OF ADJUSTMNETS ALONG THE WAY BUT WE WILL CONTINUE TO RELY ON THE LORD FOR HIS STRENGTH AND COURAGE TO FORGE AHEAD.  THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT WE THREE WILL BE TOGETHER.  HOW THANKFUL WE ARE.

I WAS ABLE TO STITCH SOME NEW DESIGNS I HAD BROUGHT ALONG FOR WHEN BRIAN WAS RECOVERING IN THE HOSPITAL AND I’LL BE WORKING ON GETTING THEM TOGETHER AND RELEASED IN A WEEK OR TWO.  I HAVE FIVE NEW CROSS STITCH PATTERNS AND POSSIBLY A NEW PUNCH NEEDLE PATTERN.

THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS TO ALL, LORI

GETTING THERE.....

EVERY DAY BRIAN IS A LITTLE BIT STRONGER.  HE HAS MANY MONTHS OF RECOVERING FROM THE SURGERY ITSELF BUT EACH DAY IS A BLESSING.  HIS SURGERY WAS 4 WEEKS AGO YESTERDAY.  HOW FAR HE HAS COME.  THEY SAY HE CAN GO TO ACUTE REHAB ON TUESDAY.  WE ARE BOTH OVERJOYED AT THIS AND LOOK FORWARD TO BEING HALF THE DISTANCE FROM HOME THAN WE ARE DOWN HERE.  PLUS IT’S ENCOURAGING TO GET TO THE NEXT STEP ON THIS JOURNEY.  I’M HOPING I CAN GET OUR LITTLE ZOE NEXT WEEK BUT HAVE TO SEE AFTER WE GET TO REHAB AND KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT ALL THAT ENTAILS.  WE WON’T KNOW UNTIL THEY ASSESS JUST HOW LONG BRIAN WILL BE THERE.  I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT NEEDS ADJUSTING AT THE HOUSE AND TRY TO GET STARTED ON THAT SO I’LL BE GOING BACK AND FORTH.  WE HAVE NO FAMILY CLOSE SO WILL RELY ON OUR DEAR FRIENDS WHEN WE NEED TO.  MANY HAVE OFFERED TO HELP.  WE THANK EACH ONE FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES.  WE PRAY THE LORD CAN USE THIS TRIAL IN OUR LIVES FOR HIS GLORY.  HE IS EVER FAITHFUL AND OUR HEARTS OVERFLOW WITH JOY AND THANKSGIVING.  LOVE AND BLESSINGS, LORI
