I want to say a big thank you to all that have been sending up prayers and support to me and Angelo. He was moved to the nursing home and the road to recovery begun. It was very trying. I can say that he his stronger physically and medically he is okay. Its the global aphasia that is the greatest challenge we are facing. He is in a wheelchair. With assistance he is able to move from bed to chair. And back. Still not walking but does have the movement of his right leg again.So that is a plus. The right hand is still not moving yet.
Just before logging in to write this post the social worker at the nursing home facility called and said the insurance company is pushing for a release for 8/3/17. I wish I could be happy about this but I am on the fence. See the problem is he is unable to communicate verbally or with the use of any type of visual aide. Still needs assistance with bathing and toileting. (Which everyday I assist him with.)But I am now the sole provider for the household. So I have to leave him in the care of someone while I am at work. Me and the family are working together to come up with a plan. Our home has a serious flight of stairs to get to the full bath and that is not going to work for him. So we are going to move him to his dad's home. I really wanted him to come home but I guess that is not in his best interest right now. I feel so alone without him.
Its like the most intelligent person I know just lost his mind. I look at him sometimes and wonder if he remembers the love we had. For a short while I thought he had forgotten me altogether. But the other day he reached out to me and tried to say baby, then gave me a kiss. I was so happy. He loved me like no other man I have ever known. From the moment we met he had me smiling everyday. And now I don't know if he will ever love like that again. He is very childlike so we may never be the same as we once were. I have to believe in time things will improve. I am going to speak with a counselor about the feelings I am having. So wish me luck on moving forward. I am scared I am losing him. The family has all kinds of input but he is my husband. I hope they do not try and take him from me. I am 4 feet 11 inches tall and they underestimate me. They better not try me. Or they will feel the fury in me.
Okay, enough with the venting.
I received a prize for a drawing from minnie-allxxs.blogspot.com. She had 4 patterns to win and 7 entries. She surprised us all and gave everyone who entered a pattern. I plan to stitch this during the holidays.
. I created a Instagram page to log my progress with my projects. Same name as the blog. I started my first Heaven and Earth Design. When I started watching FlossTube videos I knew I had to have a HAED. But not a massive one. Now they have small sizes. So I have a Storykeep design. I worked on it for a bit. Its still going to take a while to stitch.
I have not worked on the Elephant design. I just find it so boring to stitch with the one color. I must finish it soon though. It's for a friend. I wish I did not tell her I was stitching her something and then I could put it off longer. Alas, I am dedicating this week to finishing it
And my love of course is the Halloween Cat. I had another visit from the dreaded frog. It was a small patch but it still put me off. And I found a small spot (ugggggh!) on the fabric. I hope it comes out when I wash it. I am going to focus on finishing the Elephant and Kitty so I can have some alone time with my HAED. LOL
This is the pattern I was gifted from Minnie's blog.
This is my very first HAED. Fragile by Kirstin Mills.
Stitching this on 18 ct Oatmeal Aida.
I was using baggies. I switched to bobbins last night.
Which took forever.
This was my start on 18 ct after getting rid of the 25 ct magic guide
28 ct Jobelan
The color of the fabric is Denim
Stitched on 18 ct. hand dyed fabric from Garibaldi's Needle Works

Well my Stitchy friends, until next time.
