A Small Finish


This is one of Diane's Little House Needleworks' "Piece of Cake" designs, Pines and Acorns. I love stitching her designs. I think I'll make this into a needlebook (maybe), but thinking about it, it would be cute grouped with her Woodland designs too. Oh, what to do... what to do?
I'm so happy to say I love my new doctor! He's tiny and cute, from East India, but 2nd generation, very Americanized, no accent. I could stick him in my back pocket and take home. I'm a big, 5'10" corn-fed girl from IL, and I towered over him. I also liked that he laughed at me a lot---we had a great time getting to know each other. He l-o-v-e-s medicine and is highly intelligent. He's going to get me straightened out and is very thorough. I have some screwed up chemistry because of my lupus and other causes, but he's going to help me. I'm very hopeful and happy about having him in charge of my care. He told me this hot, humid month has been very hard on people with health problems. I'm only one of many who's just passed out by being dehydrated (even though I've been inside in the A/C and drink enough water) from sweating. I was also low in serum sodium and hemoglobin, but that's going to change, and I had more tests done today.
After my appt., I went to Walmart to do some grocery shopping I hadn't been able to do before today, and I was inside with a cartload of stuff, waiting out a thunderstorm and reflecting on my conversation with Dr. Adoni, when all of a sudden, it hit me---I'd used my favorite term of "holy cow" several times with him. Ya think that's why he was laughing so much? In the Middle East, aren't cows sacred? Thus, the term "holy cow?" HOLY COW!!!
