This Was The Day....

 Today we went to the quarterly ALS clinic.  It was quite a day, from 8:30 to 3:30 with 10 professional  visits and a collection of patients in all stages of ALS.  The big Doctor did the ALS ice bucket challenge...so much fun!! 
 My man has declined in his disease breaking many hearts, especially mine.  Soon in our home will be a Hoyer lift for transferring, an external ventilator called a Trilogy breathing machine and a suction machine.  He has also made an appointment in October for a feeding tube.  I just hate it.
While we waited, this quilter finished 3 hexie flowers.  Quilting through the stressors. 
 My wonderful Wednesday group, all hand stitching the binding down on Jean's quilt.
 Here is Jean's version of our Block in the Box quilt.  All beautifully long arm quilted by our Terri Feehan.
 The backing and the label.  Enjoy the quilt Jean...and be brave and be well.  Hugs from the IQ's.
 Making oatmeal muffins with leftover cooked oatmeal.  Someone is learning healthy cooking in Auntie Em's Cafe...now open again!!!

Hexies are a great way to keep your hands busy and your mind occupied. I am so sorry your husband's situation has become more difficult. Take care. Sending hugs and prayers your way.
