I had my first radiation treatment this morning. :( The doctor said I would be toxic 7-10 days. I have dreaded this for months but in a way I'm glad to be getting it over with. For those of you that missed my December post, I have Graves Disease, which is a thyroid disorder and I have 3 tumors on my thyroid that can not be removed. So that is what this radiation is for to kill the thyroid and tumors. My biggest problem will be not being able to touch my kids. Hunter sleeps with me after Richard goes to work so I'm not sure how we will handle that tonight. He even told me to use rubber gloves when handling the food that I cook. I just can't wait for this to be over and it has just started...
On to some quilting things... Yesterday I had two doctors appointments. I was so tired by the time I got home. In between appointments I stopped by The Attic (junk store) and picked up a few things. I bought these 2 twin size sheets that I thought I would cut in half, then quilt and donate for the babies at the doctors office in town. They are very cute and they were unopened.
I also picked up some, actually 20, men's cotton shirts. I saw on the Quiltville site where she cuts them up and uses then in quilts. For some reason plaid fabric is hard for me to find around here so I bought these to use and they were only 2/$1
After my long day with appointments, I stopped by the mailbox on the way home. I got this wonderful package from Cathi (Celtic Knots) She sent me some wonderful Civil War fabrics and the Dear Jane cd. I didn't get a photo of the cd but it is in my computer right now. I have printed off a few blocks but haven't started on any yet.
Hopefully, I will get alot of sewing done in the next few days. With this radiation I will be off to myself alot. So maybe sewing and blogging will keep my mind busy.
Oh and one more thing... I just got my DSL hooked up about an hour ago!!!!! Finally no more dial up!!!
