Jon’s Surgery Went Well

Jon’s surgeon called me at 12 noon, letting me know that everything went well.

But they were concerned about the incision site getting infected so he was going to have to stay the night.  The surgeon put a stent in one blocked artery and said Jon might need another one.  He would know more when he reviewed the tests and images they got today.

I was thrilled that the surgery was over and Jon was fine, disappointed that he might need another surgery and sad that I couldn’t pick him up and bring him home.

I spent the next three hours working on the backing of my quilt and waiting for Jon to call me.

It strangely took that long to sew together even though it was just four or five pieces of fabric.  I think when things like this happen, time is altered.

Once I got to talk to Jon, to hear his voice, the day slipped back a notch towards normal.

I knew he was doing okay when he started talking about trying to blog from his iPhone. I think I convinced him to try and rest instead.

I expect to pick Jon up tomorrow morning.

  1. So glad that things are looking good for you and Mr. Jon.

    I must say that this picture is a classic. Very frame worthy!

    Hope you all have a peaceful, restful, night!

  2. Maria, it’s good of you to put the notice on your site about Jon, I have been thinking of him today, thinking too, of all that he is missing politically, you’ll have to reign him in when he gets home.

    I love the tableau of your chickens and cats. That in itself is a lovely picture. Getting chickens to stand still long enough to photograph them isn’t always easy.
    All the best, and happy quilting,
