Quilt shop excursion

Thursday, I went to Pennington Quilt Works, and had a fabulous time buying fabric and patterns and meeting such nice women. I drove there on the highways using GPS and came home on county roads using just the sense of direction my Dad had nurtured in me. I didn't get lost and saw fabulous farms, horses, cows, gardens and a Chinese geese for sale sign. The homes were lovely to look at and so much greenery, it was very refreshing.

I had surgery this past Monday on my breast and will get my biopsy results on Monday. It should be good news, as it is 90% likely to be benign. I also found out that I don't have VonWillebrand's Disease which I had been diagnosed with at age 17. I do have an Alpha 2 Antiplasmin Deficiency, a very rare bleeding disorder. As of 2009, there were 15 reported congenital cases worldwide. My good friend Lesley in England, said leave it to me to a "posh bleeding disorder", lol. My brother and sister surprised me by offering help for the surgery, my late Mom would be very happy. ;-}
