Not so good news.... And some pretty good news

Good morning readers. The news I have today is not very good. I went to Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, NC for my yearly heart/vascular check-up and was told that the artery in my right arm is either collapsing or has already collapsed. My blood pressure in that arm was only 61/59 with no pulse points found. Not good.

I am returning to Baptist on December 9th for two tests and the results of those tests will determine what surgery I will have on the 10th and be home by the 12th. Hopefully it will only be angioplasty or a stent. If it entails more, there is no telling when I'll get to come home.

The other news I have is actually good news - one of my patterns is a freebie download in the holiday issue of Rusty Tin Roof Ezine. That is quite an honor in my book. Just look for The Prim Merchant throughout the magazine.

Everyone have a fantastic week and a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!


  1. I am so sorry for about your artery. We will pray for you and positive news on the 9th!

    Congratulations on the freebie - I will have to check it out!

  2. I hope for the best possible outcome when you revisit the hospital. I'll look for your pattern.
