My brother had his second hip replacement done yesterday. He had his first one done two years ago!! So, now, he's going to be even more annoying than he already was, by thinking he's the "bionic man" or some such! If any of you have older brothers, you know what I'm referring to, I would guess. My brother is only 22 months older than I am, and rather than me being a pesty little sister, he was always the aggravating one! He delighted in making me squeal, "Mother, make him stop!" He has grown up to be just as aggravating as a man, at least in height, but not in maturity! Seriously, when he is around, I have to ban the topics of religion and politics, because whether he truly agrees with you or not, he will argue just for the sake of argument. He thinks it's funny to see me, or anyone, get frustrated, etc...... I love him, anyway, though, and wouldn't trade him in for anything. I was there yesterday morning when he had the surgery, and he did remarkably well! I wouldn't want to be one of his nurses!
A quick up-date on my mother.....
The doctors have decided that perhaps some of her meds, or a combination of some of them, could be causing some of her anxiety, crying, headaches, etc.... So, she was taken to a nearby hospital yesterday, where they have a special unit for seniors with these types of issues. They are planning to gradually take her off of most of her meds and gradually add back some or change them altogether. The goal is to get her off as many drugs as possible and send her back to the nursing home a much calmer lady.
These are the two main fabrics that are going into the baby's nursery. Lovebirds from the Leanika Collection by Dena FreeSpirit Fabrics is for the crib skirt and a few accent pillows, etc... The pink has tiny white polka dots and will be made into curtains and perhaps a pillow, as well.
I haven't purchased the minky dot fabric that I want to use for a blanket, but I will probably stop at Katey's today to see if she has a color I want.
