Today in the life

well, I am in the process of a baby blanket that I am knitting, one that I am crocheting and also knitting some kitchen stuff. I did a hanging towel with matching dishcloth and tribbles, and also working on a mystery cloth too. I am bummed out as Don's dad is really confused, but the doc decided today that it is the pain patches. So they took one off and are going to do the same with the other since he doesn't seem to be in so much pain like before. I have to get some things mailed as my niece is stalking the mailperson waiting for her jacket to come. It is still here, but I think it will go out tomorrow as I have to get up to take the car so that Travis can get to school. They have one of those late starts again. i wish they would of had those back in the day when I was in school.

My Dear Father in Law

This post is to ask for prayers for my Father in Law. Well, Don and I aren't married, but I still count him as my father in law. He is such a sweetheart and is going thru some really tough times with cancer. He started out with Prostate cancer a few years ago, and that is all gone, but in December a few days before Christmas we found out that he has a new cancer and it spread like wild fires thru all his body. It is in his hips, spine, kidneys, liver and skull. In his bones as well. He started Chemo, but it is killing him faster I think. He has had two treatments and the last one he had an allergic reaction to. He had to have a blood transfusion the week before the second treatment, and they believe that is what caused the allergic reaction. He is stubborn and set in his ways and tired of the poking and prodding that they do at the hospital. he is in pain and not really able to sleep well. the medications make him goofy at times and we are just trying to spend as much time as possible with him. it is very hard to see him this way when 2 months ago he was still working as a handy man at an apt. complex at the age of 80. he will be 81 in March. We are not sure if he will make it to his birthday. Hopeful though. Please keep him in your prayers.

New things I have been working on.

Good morning all. I have been working on lots of things, just haven't posted in a while. I have made a few more jackets, some knit cloths and I am also working on a baby blanket from a kit I bought last summer from Herreschner's. I have been spending time with my father in law, as his cancer is really bad now. Please keep him in your prayers. Hope you like the new pictures. This is Katelynn and Hailey. Don's two great nieces. I made them their jackets and got them to model.
