Headache Update

Yes I still have a headache. I have some kind of infection in my eye. They were thinking shingles, but figured I would have a rash by now if it was shingles. No rash, but now I have a sore in my nose and outside my nose. Yesterday my blood pressure went up, so I went back to doctor. When I got there my blood pressure was normal, not sure if it lowered on the way there or the digital blood pressure thingy was working correctly. So doctor sent me for a CT scan and gave me more antibiotics and some pain pills. Saw doctor again this morning, my scan was normal and I do not have a sinus infection like he thought. 

On a side note here, my family got a big kick out of the possible sinus infection. My last sinus infection is now 5 yrs old and started kindergarten. I was treated for 3 months for what we thought was a sinus infection, when it actually turned out to be morning sickness with a stuffy nose. I took a pregnancy test as a joke and was SHOCKED when it was positive. So this time my husband is giving me a hard time and saying maybe it's a boy. Hahah

So, I'm on 2 antibiotic pills and 1 antibiotic eye drop, along with an anti-viral for my nose sores, another eye drops for pain, and some killer pain meds for my headache/eye ache. Needless to say, all these meds are making me nauseous now. I'm spending a lot of time sleeping and no sewing at all. Also hubby says my pain pill makes me act funny, so I'm great entertainment for him now.

Unless a miracle happens overnight and I wake up better, there will be no sewing this weekend. But when I do get back, I have a cool giveaway for one special reader of my blog! So stay tuned!

Thanks for your prayers!

One Flower Wednesday & 7 day headache

Thanks to everybody who left the wonderful comments on my last post. I tried to email everybody, but not sure if I did. You see I've been suffering from a 7 day headache. It started Thursday night and has gradually gotten worse each day. I'm just glad I was able to sew on Friday night. I got some relief on Monday thanks to massive doses of ibuprofen and Excedrin migraine. Today that headache has now moved to behind my right eye. I have decided to go see the eye doctor and find out what's going on. So please pray for me.

Now I haven't been updating my blog, but I have been sewing on my hexie quilt regularly. I want to have the top finished before it gets cold, so I can hand quilt it this winter. I don't have pics of individual flowers, but I'll repost my quilt pic from Friday night.
I'm linking this to One Flower Wednesday.

Friday Night Results

Handmade by Heidi

After work I decided to go buy some fabric for my rainbow quilt I'm going to make for myself. I found some cute cloud fabric for my quilt and tinkerbell fabric for my youngest daughter a skirt.
 The cloud fabric is blue, but for some reason the picture turned out purple. 

Then I came home and tested out my blocks for a quilt for my grandmother. I really like how they turned out.
Looks like I need better lighting for my pictures. LOL

Then I decided to move to the couch and watch season 1 of Lost. While I was watching TV, I was sewing on my hexagon quilt. It's now a little more than halfway finished.
While I didn't get anything completely finished, I feel like this was a productive FNSI. I have a plan for my rainbow quilt, a plan for my grandmothers quilt, and a few more hexie flowers added to my hexie quilt.

What did you do Friday night?
