Two Nails

So, I was telling the Doctor......
And looked what happened.
I am sure that many of you have been through this exciting experience!? Nail surgery, both sides of both big toes.  Well, what the heck, why not get it all over with at the same time!  I wonder if I can get out of making dinner tomorrow night too?

Something very special to share  — one of my sweet Knot-y Embroidery Ladies entered (for the first time) one of her works of art to the Folsom Quilt Show.  She not only won a ribbon for the best in the category of interpreting a master piece SHE WON THE BEST OF SHOW!!  Well Done Nancy.  You are an inspiration!







(I apologize for the poor photograph, it was taken across the classroom and then my battery went dead.  Nancy's work is breath taking when you see it up close, and her work holds your eyes to explore in wonder!)

How are you doing, getting any Olympic watching in?

PS - Kim was able to make it to class on Monday evening.  She was looking good and as happy to be out with us all as we were to  have her with us.  There is much PT and recovery still ahead for her, she is feeling better though and that is something to celebrate.  Hooray for you KIM!

I'm delighted to hear about Kim! I'm glad she's getting out to do things, as from what little I've picked up I'd say that was important for herself.
Congrats to your embroidery lady! That's just great news, imagine starting one's public career on such a high! She'll make President yet!
And your poor footses! I think you should be off dinner duty for at least a week of sympathy...yeh yeh not going to happen I know! I hope they get better soon, you'll be like Alice and have to sent them 'get well' cards!!!!

Sorry you're not feeling too good; at least your feet aren't. Hooray for your Embroidery Lady! What an awesome award!

Feel better!

Oh Gran! You poor dear! And your poor toes ... makes my toes hurt! I sure hope it's an easy and speedy recovery and that you'll be ready to go dance the night away in the very near future. That, of course, doesn't mean that you have to actually do it ... just want you to be able to :) God Bless!

Ooooo don't like seeing bandages on toes! I hate just getting a pedicure when they decide to dig on the one side of my nail...ouch! Wish you well soon!

I TOTALLY feel your pain. I dealt with an ingrown toe much of last year. I finally had mine removed and burned out so it won't grow back. The last scab fell off three weeks ago...all good now!

you have lovely little feet, Gran - and i don't even like feet ...... my sister had surgery on both of her feet at the same time, too - and she didn't have anyone who was willing to bring her stuff, so before i had to leave i set up everything for her and wrapped her in her Broken Hearts quilt and told Mr. Husker that he was gonna have to take care of my sister or he'd be very, very sorry ... she said that he was a good Nurse Nancy for about 4 hours and then he escaped out to the cows and calves cuz he can't handle other peoples' pain .. the wimp

Hi gran,
Those toes look pretty uncomfortable - Hope it is a speedy recovery for you and that hubby is around to save you a few steps and perhaps cook you a delicious meal.
Have a nice recuperating weekend.
Warmest regards,
Anna
