This week I am working freelance early in the morning three days (followed by my other two jobs) and have a doctor's appointment, weight watchers and Pilates the other days. I better get some sleep--it is going to be a LOOOOONG week!

On the weight front--I have really not lost anything in the last six weeks. The week of my surgery I gained 5.6 and the following week I lost 11 pounds. Since that time, I am up one pound despite really getting back to the exercise (10 days later) and eating right. They have adjusted some meds and I am hoping that will help and I am not giving up but seriously I am doing Pilates twice a week, jump Pilates once a week, hiking twice a week and now I have added back in the elliptical and bike several times a week. I am at 87 pounds down at this point so trying to look at the bright side..but really frustrating that I have plateaued again! :)

On Thursday Terri picked me up and we headed to Prescott for quilt camp! I was so excited to be going even though I had been having some pain on and off since Tuesday. It wasn't awful and I thought I would be fine. So Thursday after lunch I had more pain and set up at camp and sewed anyway. I managed to make up these two purple Betty's Choice blocks for Amy and I and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I started having pain again and finished this little quilt. We had plans to meet up with Becky in town at 11 and so Terri, Dr. Kathy and her mother in law and I all went into town and did a little shopping before going to lunch. My pain kept getting worse and before their food came (I already knew I wasn't eating) I started crying and Terri jumped up to take me to the ER. Becky later met us there with Terri's boxed up food. They both stayed with me and kept me in good spirits until the ambulance drove me back to my home hospital where I had had my gallbladder surgery five weeks ago.
Rainbow Scrap Challenge!

Book Look Bloggers Review: Bella's Gift How One Little Girl Transformed a Family and Inspired a Nation
While I did not agree with the politics in the book (he is a conservative republican), I was able to look past that and relate to the Santorums as a mother of a disabled child (now adult). I could really empathize with some of the battles they had to undertake to get their daughter things she needed to live. I felt like there was much to glean from the lessons in the book.
This book was a good read and I would recommend it pretty readily. I will be keeping an ear out to hear how Bella is doing as time goes on, she has already well defied the odds and I hope she continues to do so!
