Update Post

   It's been an interesting summer for us filled with various illnesses.
June seemed to be ok. I had a root canal done on a tooth that already had a root canal done to it except 
The endodontist forgot a root! I have been in such pain with that tooth for about 2 yrs. It is finally fixed!
   My boy and husband went to Boy Scout camp in mid July for a week. My boy got really sick there and came home sick. I took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with STREP! My husband was sick and I eventually got sick too, but not with strep, though it felt like it.
   I also had a breast biopsy in July. It was an awful time of not knowing what was going on. But I got
results within days and it was negative. In September my doctor confirmed I had Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot--that is painful! And I have bursitis in my left shoulder. I am getting OLD!
    In early August, my mom got sick. She made a doctor appointment but her doctor was out of town for weeks, so we waited. In that two weeks my mom steadily got worse. When I brought her to the doctor 
she was very unwell and short of breath. At her appointment, the nurse took her pulse and it was 33!!! 
That is way too low. The doctor rechecked that, listened to her heart and ordered and EKG.  That 
Showed a third degree heart block. Not a blockage, but this was an electrical issue in her heart. I
brought her to the hospital immediately and later that afternoon she had a pace maker put in. There was
an  immediate improvement with my mom and she is feeling almost 100% better. 
  We didn't go up north this summer as my shoe class was cancelled. I was sad about that but signed up
for the February shoe making class again. I'll go up again as I did this past February and my husband
will stay home with the boy. My little boy who is now a SIXTH grader!!! Hard to believe but it's true.
  I finally brought SIX bags of outgrown clothes over to my brothers house for his son. No jacket this
year, it's the first year there has been no jacket because my boy used a jacket for TWO years and  then 
the zipper broke. 
  One of my most favorite ever wood crochet hooks, that my husband and I made, met an untimely death.
The new puppy we got in March got a hold of it and chewed it up. I'm trying to work on a replacement 
but it is slow going trying to find time to go out to the shop and work on it.

That's about it for the update.
