Quilt No. 9

Quilt No. 9

Originally uploaded by dordognequilter

"Hi Clare
We all absolutely love the quilt and hope it will become a
keepsake for Terri in the future long after she can put all this behind
her. It really is beautiful. She arrived home on Saturday shortly
before we got there: Her white count is doing really well and although
she has had to go back to the hospital almost daily she is able to stay
out for now. She is on a concoction of drugs and obviously doesn't feel
well a lot of the time but was chatting and certainly glad to be home
again when we saw her. She has to have lots of tests and more chemo
over the next few months but was talking about future schooling and was
quite positive. This is particularly important given that one of her
friends died from an infection following a transplant just before Terri
had her own. My brother (her dad) took the attached photo and they are
happy for it to go on the blog.

Thank you again
