Let me start by saying it is never, I mean never fun to go to the hospital. But I guess if you have to go, then this is the way to go.
Last night I was going to knit night in honor of this sweet girl named Allie who is graduating. Most of the ladies in our group are just that ladies! But Allie is 18 years old and such a breath of fresh air. We will surely miss her sitting there in her corner of the couch with her sweet smile. We may have to take our knitting on the road to College Station. Ok, Allie we would ask first I am sure! After everyone gave Allie her gifts, then Rainy (owner of the shop) presented me with a gift. Actually, it was another gift for Annabel. The ladies in our knit group all knitted Annabel a square with a heart in the center of the square. Also, there is a butterfly sewn on the blanket on the corner of one of the squares. This blanket is so soft and snuggly! I bet I will be snuggled up right next to her under her sweet blanket that are made with so much love.
Then remember my friend Lisa who has 6 little precious hospital gowns made for Annabel, then her seamstress who made Annabel a sweet rag doll with 2 pairs of matching P.J.'s and two matching hospital gowns??? Well today I received a call from Lisa saying there was one more surprise. So this evening Annabel, myself, and Tara went to Lisa's house. Gramma, a.k.a. Mrs. C, a.k.a. Lisa's neighbor, decided to make Annabel a quilt with the leftover fabric of her gowns. I was so glad I brought Annabel with me as Mrs. C had not seen her in a good while and couldn't believe how grown up she has become. The quilt is beautiful and so colorful. It touches me that they all chose something to do for Annabel. All of the children in the photo with Gramma, a.k.a. Mrs. C are not Lisa's. They are friends of her children and Annabel loved all the attention and activity. Also, for the record Lisa is not in any of the photos. She would not allow me to take her picture. I am going to research in my picture history and see if I have one. I'll show her!(JK)
With all this fun, the fact is that we will be leaving tomorrow to be admitted to the hospital. All these fun things have served as a great distraction, since I can tend to worry. I know it is totally out of my control and not in my hands, Thank you, Jesus!
