We got a wake of call when we went to see the neurologist about hubby's tremors that I wasn't liking and wanted to know if they were related to Parkinson's which has been ruled out. That had been said more than once at the nursing home by the medical staff. To see the hands shake even using both when trying to take a drink was hard to watch. Unfortunately, it is related to his liver which is in the process of shutting down. Then to get a phone call where he refused to get out of bed and wouldn't eat breakfast or lunch. I knew it was time to put him in hospice. It is bringing in extra eyes to watch what is going on. They will re-evaluate him in 6 months and if he hasn't shown any improvement then he will remain in hospice because we don't know when the liver is going to completely shut down. We know the portal vein is blocked and he has a blood clot in the liver. They can't put him on blood thinners because of another issue. He has so many strikes against him. His bed was like a roller coaster and uncomfortable when I went to see him.. I just wanted to see if I could get him a new bed to see if that would help with his hip that hurts so that he could sleep better and not take pain pills. Hospice got him the new bed and a new wheelchair that will actually tilt back so his head isn't hanging down when he falls asleep in it. They were brought in the night we had signed the paperwork. I will be popping in and out when I have time which is limited at the present time.
I think I will be making another baby quilt like the one above after I get through my next craft show. The baby is due in February. I know who I made it for dearly loved it.
I tried some new tea towels to see how they would do and I sent both to a new home. I thought the black horses looked really nice on the yellow plaid. It is getting late so I need to call it a day, but I wanted to let you know what I have been doing . Prayers are greatly appreciated. Take care.
