Summer Sewathon

It's the worse reason for having a summer sewathon.  My boy Seamus is still unwell and nothing has made him better so far. He has had an ultrasound, a liver biopsy, and a variety of blood work.  Each time he has bloodwork done, the tests show that his ALT liver enzyme has elevated more.  Doctors from two different practices are working together but the diagnosis has remained elusive.  Seamus is now on two antibiotics, in addition to the rest of the medication he is on.  In fact, some of his medication no longer fits into his pill organizer.
He spends most of days sleeping in front of his fans.
I don't go out much because of his medication schedule.  I'm just hoping something will soon work and I will have a recovering baby soon.  But with each option not working, it is hard to keep a postive spirit.  The truth is no one knows what will work for him.  So we medicate and wait and hope the sleep helps him.

And I sew to abate the anxiety.

I just make tops.  Some will go to my friend Terri to be quilted, others I will quilt later when it is cooler. I've hit the UFO boxes pretty hard and done some samples for upcoming programs that I am working on.  Here are a few I've done:

The last top is a lap quilt for our groomer.  Seamus isn't well enough to be groomed but there is some maintenance that poodles always need (because they don't shed).  Jessa came to our house last week and groomed while he layed down.  It was no easy task for her but she did a beautiful job and he is more comfortable now.  Yes, we even took the fan outside to keep him comfortable while she worked on him.
I know this is a long post but I don't often feel like posting these days.  Hopefully, I'll have better news about Seamus soon.  Hugs, Mickie

Poor Shayme - and poor momma :( That's a lot of pills - how's he doing? It has cooled down somewhat here - is it the same in PA (in which case YAY, because he'd be a lot more comfy if it wasn't as hot!)? That's a lot of sewing you're getting done - that's a good way to give yourself a bit of a break from everything that's going on. Don't even worry about not blogging - I'm just now getting back to sewing and computers (and shopping! YAY SHOPPING!) and aquafit - sometimes we have to take a break, and that's just the way things go! {{{{{Shayme and Mickie}}}}} <--- pumpkin spice flavoured! ;)

Wow that's a lot of pills - poor Seamus - hopefully it's cooled down a bit by now, and he's more comfortable. You really have gotten a LOT done girl! Great tops!
