I’m here to tell you about a very dear friend of mine. We’ll call her Victoria. Ovarion Cancer struck her two years ago. That wasn’t bad enough, after a complete hysterectomy her stay in the hospital was extended to almost a year and a half. She had heart complications on four occasions due to reaction to med’s. She had four or five severe infections brought on by bacteria she contracted in the hospital., not to mention all the complications brought on from all of that. Victoria also had four blood clots that had to be treated that were life threatening. Since she has been home, she’s been back to the hospital several times with various complications, and on top of that, she’s on her second round of chemo therapy.
She has good reports right now and two more treatments left. The thing that has absolutely amazed me, is that at her worst time, she managed to keep a positive outlook. She has been as much a support to her friends as they have been to her.
When we talked the other night, I told her I had to go in for a biopsy after something showed up on my Sonogram. She said to me, “I know I can tell you don’t be scared, but you will be, I know I can tell you not to worry but you will, but what I CAN tell you is look at me. I’m still alive:)” That was the most supportive thing I’ve been told. I’ve had friends say it’s nothing, and those that have been very supportive. I know it’s probably a minor thing and at this point I’m not reeally too worried about it. I’ll save that for after the biopsy:)
Victoria has always been there beside me through thick and thin for almost 60 years. We’ve been together since grammar school, divorce and up to now. I have to tell you, she’s been my Guardian Angel here on earth. There no matter what, and GUESS WHAT? She has hair again:)

This one is for Connor and will go to his Grandma’s house:)
This one too is orange and green, completely by accident, but this one goes to the Grandma to keep at her house. Grandma’s have to have their “baby stash” too, don’t they? lol
This one is going to go to Connor too. The orange and the yellow are the same, just the sashing and backing colors are different. I have one more to make for Grandma, it’s a red and white one that is really cute. It has black and white puppies on it. The top is done, but I have to get it loaded on the frame and quilted. Then of course do the binding. I’m hoping to have all that done by this week end some time. Happy Day everyone.
I took the Process Pledge today and thought I’m really giong to try and keep it up. I just finished the binding on three quilts for a friend. They’re all three for her grandbaby, one is a baby quilt and the other two are a little larger than Crib size. They came out pretty good, but not without a lot of issues along the way. lol I have one more to do it’s a red, red&white stripes, and black and white with red scarves on puppies. It’s really cute. It’s flannel so won’t be used till winter I’m sure. It’s almost the size of a twin bed though, so it can be put on the floor and the baby can lay there and play. He’s just turning two months old now. I’ll post pictures of them later today. Have a great day all!
I, Candi_Harris, pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them in the in words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.
