Thank You

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

 I really want to thank everyone for your kind words, and especially those of you who shared your stories with me.  When you are experiencing a loss, it is reassuring to know you are not alone; that others have made it through.  It has really been a big help.  I am always amazed by how kind and caring you all are.  It makes me feel extra fortunate.

Dan went back to work on Monday.  I had my cousin over to keep me company.  I got a bit of work done, mailed out one order, and cut a few things... we spent the rest of the afternoon making ourselves some slippers.  I made mine out of some plaid flannel, and floral cotton for lining.  We appliqued non-slip hearts onto the soles.  I have made these slippers twice now for myself.  The pattern is from  I made one minor adjustment this time, and made the upper foot part a little lower cut.

Friday and Saturday were pretty rough.  I finished the misoprostol on Friday, but was feeling pretty uncomfortable into Saturday.  We went out on Saturday to Ikea, of all places.  I felt like getting out would give me a good distraction from what had been going on.  It did, but the walking was not easy... We picked out a new couch, and bought some new shelves and knick knacks for in the living room.  I spent the rest of the weekend cleaning and rearranging.  It felt good to give the house a bit of a make over.

We went for Sunday Dinner at my parents house.  That was pretty hard for me, and I think for Dan too, but I have wanted to get back into my normal routine as quickly as possible.  I've been trying to get out and do things I enjoy, even if it is hard.  Thanksgiving is coming up in a couple of weeks and I am absolutely dreading it.  I normally look forward to family occasions, but it's going to be a rough one this year.  I'm still not 100% sure I want to go. This might be a good year to maybe go away for the holidays...

 I am incredibly grateful  for my little Oliver these days.  It is just so good to have a little animal companion during tough times.  We've spent lots of time cuddling the last few days....

Today, I will follow up with my doctor, and hopefully will be able to put this all behind me soon.  I am really looking forward to feeling 'normal' again.


  1. Those slippers are so rad! I am thinking I will have to try my hand at them when I gain a bit more experience, haha. You have probably the cutest pug I've ever seen. ^.^

  2. Where did you get the non-slip material for the heart soles (what kind is it?)?

    1. I got it at Fabricland (a chain here in Canada). I can't remember what they call it... "Non slip" or something like that. It comes in a small roll! Sorry that's not much help.
