Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Kitty comfort for Ken.

Ken is home off work for three days, after an angiogram and lung function tests. The angiogram showed the artery without the stent is completely closed, and won't be able to support a stent, so the cardiologist is waiting for the lung test results before he makes a decision on what to do next, the only option being bypass surgery. Ken is not an optimistic person by nature (complete opposite to me) but he has been philosophical about his state of health for the past 10 years. He seems quite surprised sometimes that he is still alive and kicking after all he has been through, and I find it quite peculiar in view of how negative he can get about other things that happen to him. Still, it's a good attitude as far as I'm concerned; I worry enough for the two of us!

Our little Tiger has been amusing him while he's home, and I've been taking lots of photos, so if you don't like kittens, you may as well quit this blog right now!


"Are you awake, Ken?"

"No?"

"Oh good, I can climb up the curtains without being yelled at!"

"Your toes are twitching. I'll just stick my claws in them and see what happens". Ken: "OUCH!"

Gina maybe the open heart surgery would take care of a lot of his problems. How well our hearts work affect so much of our other bodily functions. My BIL had a 4 or 5 bypass 18 years ago and is in his early 80's and you would never know it. The man never stops. You would think he was 50.

I know you and Ken have gone through a lot so hope something good comes of this.

Hugs
