Well, I'm not sure I could face cancer with the kind of strength and faith you have Anna. I feel I would be strong, but my faith would not be so strong and thinking of eternal life is still scary to me. Part of my spiritual misgivings that I have yet to work out!Glad you got your yarn!

I am working on my eternal life, so every decision has a bearing on that. That is what keeps me going.

Yes, I did get more yarn. I think it will be all I need for this afghan. I may need more for the net baby afghan, though.

My sugars have straightened out at least for the time being. They run in the lower hundreds - 111-117. My blood pressure has been in the 120's for the most part. My weight is up and down. Hopefully all will be stabilized pretty soon.

Hi Ladies. Playing catch up with threads today!

Anna-- Those afghans sound gorgeous! Did you get some more white yarn yet? What treasured gifts they will be! I'm gla d you got some good soups and are eating to keep your strength up. I am uplifted by your improvements too. Again, I find your faith and your courage amazing. You remain in my prayers.

Linda-- I did make that cookie and it was good. I'll have to find the link again and post it here in our threads.

I admire you crafty ladies! I don't have the patience for any kind of crafts!

Sounds wonderful. Would you be able to post a picture when it's finished? I would love to see it, but don't worry if you can't..... I certainly understand....

Christy brought me more white yarn Friday evening. My son and his wife are going to return in a few weeks, so maybe I can have it finished by then. In the meantime if I do get it finished, there is another one to do, too. They are small granny squares with the center in the baby colors and then surrounded with two rows of white. They are connected with a light cream color and will have border of the baby colors and white. Maybe some fringe, too.

Sounds like it is made with "Granny Squares". I always found those frustrating to put together (I'm not very good at it)

I have over 25 tote bins of yarn, and when I think about all the kinds, brands, and colours in there, there really is not very many white ones. Not that it really matters because I can't get at them right now anyway..... They are still in a shed in my sister's back yard and a ton of snow in front of it...... Hopefully this summer I can get a lot of them brought over to the apartment....

Hope your daughter is able to get some more for you soon..... Take care.

I am working on the baby afghan, but I ran out of white yarn, so I cannot do anything to get the squares finished, but I can start to put some of the squares together ready for the border. Chjrist will get some more white yarn but don't know when.

Melissa, did you make that cookie? How was it.

Anna, are you knitting or crocheting the afghans? I have not done any knitting at all since Christmas and I still have my sister's scarf to finish. I am so bad.....

So glad you got some good soup. It is so helpful when they all chip in to help out people in need.

The president of the Relief Society at my church called me to say someone was going to the Bishop's Storehouse on Saturday but she was very busy and didn't have any time to come see be before Saturday. So she asked if I had time to do up a grocery order on the phone, which we did. I am so grateful for this help. and the food they provide for me.....

Hope you have a great evening and a good day tomorrow.

Melissa, I do understand your position on what choices I have made. I don't expect my children to to undersdtand why I want these choices. I just do not want their stay and visit with me to be oneof conflict.. They can talk about these choices as much as they want among themselves. A couple of them do understand but don't agree with it and we can still carry on a nice conversation among ourselves.

By the way I did get the prescription refilled through the encologist yesterday late afternoon. Christy set up an appointment with him on Thursday, I guess to keep the prescriptions coming at least for now. I am sorry you are taking this so hard so soon after you lost your mother. I have seen some improvements even in my right eye - the one that is the worst. To me that is uplifting

I am working on my grandchild's afghan, trying to get it finished. Since I cannot do much else maybe I can get it finished pretty soon, but probably not before they arrive tomorrow, I do not think.

Today is my ride scheduler's anniversary and I also learned that they are expecting a month before my son is I am going to see if I can get another one done for them, too.

The Church's kitchen bought me some lentil soup a couple of days ago and some boiled Yukon gold potatoes. I combined them and had a serving the last two nights. That is some good soup. They are supposed to bring me some tomato/basil soup, which I also like. They are also providin salads for me. It is all appreciated, believe me. And so are themany prayers for me.

Anna-- I can understand your wishes, but can also understand your children balking at them. Being that I just lost my mother I can understand them wanting you to try every option possible to you in order to stay alive. I have to admit that your news of your diagnosis has hit me hard too. I feel you are a friend even though we never met. I care about you. I admire you and your faith. I do hope you can get your pain meds. I know you need them since you are willing to take them.I wish you peace and comfort.

You know, SP just had a recipe for a single serving choclate chip cookie with like 180 calories in it. I may have to bake one of those! Nothing like a warm chocolate chip cookie!

I would take a cake of cookies any day of the week, but if there was only cookies available and I was really hungry, it would have to be chocolate chip OR chocolate chocolate chip (I love chocolate, can you tell?)

Anna, so nice you have some of your kids coming. Don't let them wear you out but I sure hope you have a good visit with them.

I like chocolate chip cookies, too.

I am still kicking. I am having problems getting the pain medication. The doctor says it is too soon to get another refill. But calculation is on my side.

My youngest daughter was here for a week and I enjoyed that very much. My oldest son, youngest son and oldest daughter are supposed to be here over the weekend and I am looking forward to that quite a bit. But I may have a hard time to get them to respect my choices.

Ihope everyone else is haveing a good day.

Anna

Wishing Anna peace and comfort. Holding you in my prayers my friend! Hope you can check in soon!

What is your favorite cookie?

Mine are Girl Scout Thin Mints, but I also like a good ol' chocolate chip!
