Today, dear husband Riley will be discharged from the hospital after having a bilateral knee replacement. The now-bionic man decided to have both knees replaced. Surgery took place on the 13th of May and today is the 22nd of May. A miracle, indeed, to be discharged this early.

One of the items on the to-do list was to drive to the medical supply place and pick up a few items to make life easier. As I packed the shower bench and apparatus that fits over the toilet (is there a real word for that contraption???), I realized that we are no longer in the spring season of our lives. Just fact, nothing more.

We have lots of adventures to still look forward to....including the vacation we didn't take in February of this year when Riley came home from Iraq earlier than expected. Oh yes, dear husband - it's in writing now so the vacation was merely postponed (smile).

I so look forward to having him home once again. Never knew hospital visits could be tiring - though not so tiring as to the rehab Riley suffered. One saving grace....a superb coffee shop offered fortitude both on the way up and on the way out. Score many points for coffee once again.

Oh yes - I did quilt a teeny bit. That "intro" photo is of ten 9 patch blocks I made. Again, these blocks will be mailed to another quilter - which she will then join these blocks with other quilters' blocks and then ultimately shipped off to "Quilts for Kids". Look it up. Be a part of it.

Soon - I quilt.
