Yesterday was Canada's birthday but a very special little boy was born today. Darren's sister gave birth this afternoon to Johnathan's baby brother - Alexander. Talk about fast - she posted a message on Facebook at noon saying she was in pain and today was the day. I got a call at 2:45 P.M. this afternoon telling me Alexander had been born. I'm sure I'll be getting a picture soon - after all, he is my adopted grandson! Now that I know his name and birthdate, I can get busy embroidering the label for his quilt.
Talking of quilt labels - I gave my Dr. a quilt last year and his receptionist called me today to ask where I got the label I put on it. I told her I made it myself so she asked if I would do one for a wedding quilt she just finished. There is nothing I wouldn't do for my Dr. and his staff, so of course I said yes.
I called the quilt store today and signed up for McKenna Ryan's Block of the Month. I have until October to change my mind. Maybe sanity will set in between now and then.
A nurse comes in twice a week to check on Leo and the one he has had for the last month is really thorough - and also really nice - she even brings dog biscuits for Ben. We call him the little nursing assistant as he watches very carefully when I give Leo his injections and change his dressings. Of course, for all that good nursing, he expects a goodie when we're finished - and you all know I couldn't deny him anything!
