I am not back by any normal stretch of things, but am trying to bop in and see what new and beautiful ideas you wonderfully creative minds have come up with. 

Actually I am supposed to be doing my exercises, but right now there is a 5 acre fire at the end of Naue, which is 2 miles from us, but the wind is blowing the other I am not too worried.....just mentally deciding where all the teddies i have gotteon from so many of my teddy friends are so that I can throw those puppies in a pillow case with my dad's miniatures and some gollies and my own patterns.  Priorities. Right?

Think about it , if you had to completely redo all your patterns?  The idea makes me want to cry.  So the hubster is out scoping out the fire situation and I am taking a break.  My heart wasn't in to the exercises tonight anyway....I'm not sure why....I think i did too much yesterday.

Hope everyone is doing well....i am not even going to try to catch up with 2 weeks of stuff from you guys......even without me you all still talk a lot.  Would there be a dint if both Shel and I stopped?  Hmmmm  :crackup:

I took some mini teds to sew to the hospital...and I had 2 of my own already done.  The nurses were....welll....the push overs I always said they are for mini's and teds.....

They told me about 2 kids on the same floor who had bone surgery.  Our floor was all bone surgery.  Poor babies.

Well like I said nurses are push overs.....

I came home with a new knee and missing two little teds....but I have it on good authority that the 2 wee ones were happy with their new little teddikins, that could fit in their pocket and go to physical therapy with them.  Mastercharge can't buy you that!

I see Our Daphne is still over doing it.  Honey I had to laugh when I read your post.  didn't surprise me a bit.  I love your optomism and confidence!  It can be infectious and that is good here.....keep us posted!  by the way, hows your dad?

I see Kimmy has come up with some new darlings, as have all of you...I love Judi's new woodburning.  Very impressive.  i can't remember much else right now.

One of the smart things I did when we picked up all the prescriptions was to put the hubs ibn charge of medicines.  I knew I would get goofy and forgetful and think i took something when I didn't, or worse take double doses.  I am very glad i did that-He is doing a great job, and I don't have to think, and not think is something I do so well right now.  I can't remember things at the moment so I will close with hugs and golly kisses to all....I think maybe I can remember more tomaroow....

So glad to see your post!  We miss you!   :hug:    How do you feel? 

I really hope that fire stays far away from you.  Please keep us updated about that - we're worried about your health and now we have to worry about the fire.  I know what you mean about taking your bears and gollies.  I've evacuated for hurricanes many times, and I always get worried about all my bears along with family pictures and videos, etc.  Sometimes I've taken some with me, but it's hard because I didn't have room to take them all. 

Have you been doing your exercise except for tonight?  Do your exercises, but don't overdo either!

I'm glad your husband is taking good care of you.

Yea, Dilu is back!

Wow, did we feel your absence!!!! Imagine how much MORE you'd have to catch up on if you'd been here. No wait, that didn't come out right! Point is... we missed your long and entertaining posts!!!

Glad you were able to pop in and hope you can pop in again soon! I'll pray for the fires to get under control and the wind to blow AWAY from you in the meantime!

Thanks for asking about dad.... I don't have good news. Pneumonia is back...bacterial... fear of it entering the blood stream..... more antibiotics.... his crocheted bear will be a work in progress for a long time I'm afraid... but this thread isn't about him. It's about YOU!!!

Don't come up with too many excuses for not doing your exercises and don't over due it!!!!  Stick to the program... it's really important so your brand spankin' new knee will work right!!!

How sweet of you to give your bears to those kids!!! What lucky children!

Thanks for checking in!
We've missed you, Dilu!

Hugs to you and hubby too!

Hi Dilu
Great to see your colorful big happy posts here again! Rest up and try not to handle the meds until you are back up to speed. Hubby hanging on to them is a good idea. WHILE YOU WERE OUT.. (ALWAYS WANTED TO SAY THAT) we did an ATC swap.. did ya know that?? lol
Anyway, I already sent yours and hope you go it ok. Don't worry about sending mine until you feel better. Big Hugs

Dear Dilu,
I am pleased that all went well. You were and are in my thoughts. I am in Cape Town at the moment spending some time with my son. We had a lovely teddy bear show on the 1st May on a wine farm, and when I get back home I will download the pictures onto my computer and share them with TT.

Keep up with your excercises,
beary regards

Oh Dilu it's so great to see you post again!  Even if it is just a little bear_original  Stay safe,... and about "loosing your patterns".... what I do is I scan all my patterns in.  But they are not just up on my computer, I upload them to my own personal Yahoo group too... (that only I can access) so I have them on 2 computers basically... one off site.

Welcome back!  I expect that with that new knee you'll soon be running a few marathons.  I know a few people who have had the replacement operation, and they are all very happy with the results.

Oh is so nice to see your post again.  As you can see you have been greatly missed by everyone.
I do hope you will be 'playing basketball again soon'.... bear_grin   Did you ever?

Take wonderful care of yourself and let us know how you are doing periodically...hugs to you,
