Family, Doctor, Quilt Stores, Mom

I drove to GA this past weekend. I went to Patchwork Cottage on Sunday afternoon and got some goodies. Our family was able to get together Sunday. We met at my daughter's condo in Sandy Springs and went out for Lunch. I hadn't seen my son in since May, so it was good to see him. I treasure the times that we can all get together.

I went to my doctor on Monday, which was the reason for my trip. He straightened out my meds, so that hopefully I won't have any more fainting, depression, or migraine headaches. I had fainted again the week before.

I found a quilt store that I hadn't been to - imagine that! "Georgia Sewing & Quilting" is at Exit 4 off 985. See http://www.georgiasewingandquilting.net/. I stopped there on my way back to TN. I also stopped at "Tennessee Quilts" in Jonesboro, TN and "Somewhere Sewing" in Johnson City, TN.

Mom fell again while I was gone, but she wasn't hurt. My sister was with her and called her husband. They were able to get Mom up. That is the 3rd time that she has fallen in the past 2 weeks. She chipped her shoulder bone when she fell on Sunday, 9/13. My husband and daughter were visiting so they helped me get her up. My daughter said that when she went back to work they said, "Did you enjoy your vacation?" She said, "Do you want to hear about my grandmother falling and going to the ER, my tripping over hoses and falling at a gas station, or my Mom going crazy from being off her medications?"

So glad to hear your mom is not breaking anything! Does she use a walker?

How is your Mom doing? Sure miss seeing you at Thimbles and quilt shops. I'm headed to Baton Rouge to spend the weekend with my Dad. Hope all is well on your end!
