At Mayo Clinic-2006

It's hard to believe it's been an entire year since we were here in Rochester with my Hubby and his brother swapping stories and a kidney. This year has started with early morning appointments and continue on throughout the day. My part of the appointments are over now, until tomorrow when some biopsies are scheduled. After that, Hubby will be on his own with his appts, and I will be doing a lot of walking and sewing. Not at the same time, of course!

This is Hubby sitting by the Mayo Brothers at the little park in front of the main Mayo Clinic Building in Rochester, Minnesota June 2005.

This is one of my favorite places to sit and wait (and watch people). It is the subway level between two main buildings, and it's the intersection that joins even more buildings together. The main pharmacy is here too, along with a little coffee shop, and some shops. There's a large piano which is usually being played beautifully by anyone who wants to stop and share their music. Of course, the sun streaming through the windows makes me smile, too!


Imagine our surprise when we were going down some steps and looked up and saw...Chihuly!!!

Can't you just see a quilt of this? It's actually some ceramic art in one of the lobbies.

Kidney one (donor brother) and Kidney Two (Hubby)

So far, they have a good plan for testing to find out about the weight loss. So here's hoping that we go home with a good plan to put the weight on him, now.

Sending prayers your way Sharon for positive outcomes for your hubby.

Sharon,

Some of the pictures look so familiar - my husband did a stint at Mayo last April for heart surgery. All is well now, and hopefully no more trips out for medical reasons. But I am really annoyed to have missed the Chihuly! My thoughts are with you, and hope you both come home with much accomplished healthwise and quiltwise.

Another Sharon, in California

I hope all goes well for you. That ceramic art would make a fantastic quilt. Even if you used sqares. Something to think about.

Susan said...

I love your pictures, Sharon! I want to see the quilt you make of the ceramic art. =)

Best of luck to your husband, and may he gain just enough weight to make everyone happy. =)
