A Success Story

My precious grandbaby, Sullivan, was diagnosed at three months with infant glaucoma. (Sullivan is now 9 months old .) This is a very rare disease affecting only 1 in 10,000. Sullivan has had two surgeries at Vanderbilt University by Dr. Karen Joos. All tests since the surgeries have been perfect.

Tracy and Tyson moved to the Nashville area 5 years ago just after they were married. Tracy has told me many time that she wasn't happy about the move, but knew God had a reason. She didn't know His reason but, maybe someday would find out. Well, the top specialist (one of only three in the country) just happened to be at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, a mere 20 minutes from their home. Now we know at least one reason God brought them to Nashville.

A couple months ago, Dr. Joos called Tracy. She was worried because Dr. Joos has never herself called Tracy. Tracy was relieved when Dr. Joos asked if she would be willing to be interviewed for an article in the Vanderbilt newspaper as a sucess story. Follow this link to read all about it:

A-quiltin' I will go . . .

This is Tracy on her wedding day in 2003. (Having her hair and make-up done, not in her dress yet, just in case you thought she got married in a cotton blouse). She's receiving a very special gift from my Auntie Sue . . . a gorgeous quilt Sue made especially for Tracy and Tyson. The reason I show you these pictures, is that when I decided I wanted to make a quilt of my own, of course the go-to girl had to be my Auntie Sue herself. She has made dozens, no, probably hundreds of quilts. She is the Queen of Quilting.

Not only have I finished my first quilt, I've had a blast with Aunt Sue! So much fun, that now I'm taking guitar lessons from Aunt Sue (don't know how well I'll do with that; I'm not very musically inclined). She is a multi-talented girl!

Here's a picture of my first quilt. I'm working on my second quilt now. I was making this quilt for Sullivan but decided that it wasn't good enough for him. I'll post a picture of the new quilt photographed with Sullivan. I'll be seeing them soon . . . YEA.
