Small Finish

Well, I finished 5:00 Somewhere (number 1, still have a second one to do). I left the charms off. The charms I bought, which I thought were small enough, were just too big. And I didn't really like the way they looked, so I think I'm just going to do without them. I'm happy with the way it turned out. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but the letters are beads with backstitching.

Our latest progress report on Anthony (my nephew) is that he's having surgery (again - poor baby!) tomorrow morning. They think the cancer is "Stage 3" because they've found some in his lymph nodes. So, rather than waiting and trying to shrink it with chemo, they want to try to get as much of it as possible as soon as possible. As scary as "cancer" and "Stage 3" sound, I did poke around on the internet, and even Stage 3 has something like a 90% survival rate. So, even though there is that scary 10%, and any surgery is scary, it isn't nearly as horrible as it could be. One of the gals on one of my stitching boards (Dr. Steph) told me that if a kid has to be diagnosed with cancer, this is one of the better ones, if that makes sense, so .... we're keeping positive thoughts!!!!

Now it's late, and time to get ready for bed.

Thanks for looking, and thanks for all the prayers!
