Yep! That is what I have today...the luck of the Irish! I just got off the phone with the doctor at the hospital. The biospy is okay although she is not happy with the amount of cells removed and wants to repeat it in 4 to 6 months to be sure but says I can go ahead with my treatments starting on Monday. I will not know until Tuesday whether I am able to go into my isolation here at home or start it with a hospital stay. I also have no idea yet how long the isolation will be but it is a maximum of three weeks. Thank goodness for blogging as it will keep me in touch with the world. I am used to seeing my stitching and quilting friends here and while I am allowed to have visitors it is with restrictions. I will leave them the choice as to whether they want to come or not.
Sorry for this repeat if you visit both of my blogs but I thought my shamrocks I finished yesterday were very appropriate for this post. I sewed seven of these and each has a different word or saying.
This was a fun way to give my entrance a real St. Patrick's Day feeling. And now I know that this day is special with thoughts of Tracy's wedding anniversary and Jo's sweet daughter's birthday. I will be thinking of both of them that day. And then when I thought I had all the luck, I find out I won Marie's blog giveaway. What was the prize to include but a set of shamrock linen napkins from Ireland. Thanks Marie!
I leave you today with another Irish blessing as so many mentioned that they loved them in my last post. This was holds very true for me today and I thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and supportive words.
"May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer."
And my ornery and evil twin (*wink*) sends this blessing...
"May those who love us, love us
And those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts
And if he can't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping!"
Now if that did not make you smile today, nothing will.
