How a Quilter Prepares for Surgery

She sews..!!!
It is not in the Ortho Carolina pre-surgical manual.
What do they know??

I am only supposed to bring my insurance cards and  my drivers license..
So I made a wrist bag to carry them in.
This is the first time I have used the cool gold glitter--see through vinyl
Cousin Ann sent me from London.
It is perfect and gives me great cheer.
 My collection of Velcro included this matching red...
I used Batik for this quick bag because it does not fray.
 Filled with essentials...
I added my keys and my phone..
In 12 hours I will be under the surgical lights.
I felt that I should sew instead of fret.
Dr. McCoy has done my knee, and my shoulder too.
I will be under the care of the best.for this hip.
And so my friends, I sign off.
Believe me I would never,ever be looking forward to surgery
if my pain were not so bad.
xxoo
