Quick note ...

Last weeks stitching was the start of Block 2 on Shores and the first of the 5 motifs on the green fabric for JN's Floral Fifteen.









Not a lot has been accomplished over the weekend though. I had a check-up visit with the neuro guy on Friday and received some rather important news. The latest MRI scan shows i have a growth in the middle of the brain, they assure me it's not a tumour only a cyst that they will monitor, it still knocked the wind out of my sails though i can tell you. I'm way behind on blog reading but will catch up with you all soon when i feel more chatty.

Thank you for sharing. We are all thinking about you at what must be a stressful time for you.

It must have been a terrible shock Julie, but if they are only planning to monitor it they can't think its anything to be worried about.
Great stitching by the way

Fab WIP's Julie....looking great xx

Marian said...

Thinking of you, Julie. I have one of those nasty cysts in my right breast that the doc is watching. Says it's benign but "will watch it". Says it's not worth the anesthesia to remove. Her opinion, not mine. You'll be fine!

Aww Julie if it's just a cyst is there any medication you can take at all? I know it's hard but try not to worry too much (hugs)

Doesn't matter that it's only a cyst...that's still really scary, isn't it? *hugs* for you.

I love the ocean floor scene of block #2. You've made a great start!
