Leeapaul Update

We got to bring Leeapaul home today but with 3 pages of instructions. Besides times to give meds, the most important one was that he be put on complete bed/crate rest for the next 6 weeks. Since Leeapaul has never been in a crate except for this stay in the hospital, that is the one restriction he doesn't like. He's pouting right now!
Lorenzo is recovering nicely. He is finally eating again. We have only 2 problems right now. First, he is frighten of all big dogs including Ama making her very unhappy since they were play pals. 2ndly, he has become a momma's boy and wants to be right next to me or on my lap all the time. Hard to sew!

DH's gouty foot is not swollen or as painful. The uric acid crystals in his joints just have to dissolve completely. Just like my other two 'boys' he's not obeying dr's orders. He is off to the casino to see if he can recoup some of the vet bills. I don't think that will happen, but off he went to 'his place of business.'

The only one of  my 'boys' that is doing what is asked of him is my DGS Chris. He has come to visit two days in a row. Today he ate sausage, drank coke, watched Indiana Jones, and sorted scraps for pieces big enough to make 3 1/2" tumblers. He promised to come back tomorrow to  cut tumblers. I wonder what he wants!

I am off to sew strips and/or make lotto blocks. Currently working on July's Swap Block but have finished Jadie's Bee block and Blondie's Swap Block. Now I just need to work on the KSG lotto blocks and the August Bee block and finish July's block. All this with Lorenzo in my lap! 
Oh, and go pick up DGD#2 so she can spend the night tonight. I am wondering when DGS#1 will contact me about his 'MaCe & Pape Book Scholarship' since he was complaining about the cost of books! I have a special fund for books to help my 3 grandchildren in college.
God has truly blessed me with wealth beyond belief. I have limited money but lots of love which is what really counts! I have a wonderful life! 
Lator Gators! May the fabric you desire appear in your stash before you need it. Keep 2011 STRESS FREE!


  1. Poor Leeapaul :( I'm sure you are just glad to have him home again.
    As far as Lorenzo, there's nothing safer than Moma's lap :)
    Enjoy your time with your grandkids!

  2. Looks like you have the makings of another Ricky Tims there! Tell him to stay interested and he can be the NEXT great man-quilter!

    Leeapaul looks so bad! LOL. I know he is jsut happy to be home, and will heal faster now that he is.

    Hopefully Lorenzo will get used to Ama again and they will be play pals soon.
