I only stitch on days that end in "y".

A little catch-up

I'm plugging right along on LHN Family Sampler....that is I was plugging right along until the weekend.  DS fell out of a tree Friday and broke a bone in his wrist.  Apparently one that is tricky to heal properly.  After seeing an ER doc and an orthopedic doc, we're off to see a hand surgeon today.

The timing is awful...percussion camp is this Thursday and full band camp starts next Monday.  We're not sure how long he'll be out of commission.

Speaking of band camp, in addition to his possible surgery, I volunteer a lot (like a full time job) with the band so I may be a bit scarce here on the blog.

Happy stitching!

Hi Rita! So sorry about your son's fall and the surgery involved in repairing the break. Hope it will simpler than they think.
Yay on the scores and I really love your uncle sam :)

Oh no Rita....I hope he heals quickly. Dare I ask what he was doing in the tree? Sending goods thought his and your way.

The sampler is looking wonderful! I hope your son does well and heals quickly!

Rita said...

Thanks, everyone!

His surgery went well but he'll be in a cast or spling for 8-10 weeks. He had a bit of pain yesterday but it was manageable. He even wanted to walk with me last night...about a mile.

Yes, Shari, it's his senior year and being unable to play his drum is the worst part of it for him.

Nikki, we asked him why he chose to climb the tree...he just had a sudden urge. (My guess is that he was showing off for his gf.)

Thinking of your son and I hope that he heals quickly.
I understand the band being a full time job (and on my end very little thanks)...
