New Quilt and Bad News-By Caresse

On Saturday morning I started making a new quilt. Mom had bought a quilt making kit a long time ago and I asked her if I could make it and she said yes. Now I have never made something like this before by myself but I think it turned out pretty good.

Now for the bad news. Two years ago I had surgery on my right knee and both of my ring fingers. I had to have the surgery because I have bone growths or knots all over my body, but I had to have surgery on just those ones because they were causing problems. They could not remove all of the one on my knee because it was near the artery . Now two years later I have to have surgery on the SAME KNEE. We went to the doctor on Monday and she said that as my body grew so did the part of the knot they could not get out. So we have to go in soon to get an MRA done and then hopefully we can wait tell January to have the surgery done. Really sad about that and asking you all to pray.

P.S from the mommy...thank you for letting my daughter share her world with you all! Above is the knee with the first scar, and below is one of her fingers that is still growing crocked. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers for us.


  1. Caresse - beautiful job on the quilt!

    Our family will be keeping you in our prayers!

    I'm sorry you have to go through this again. Trust that God has a better plan and through it all He will draw you that much closer to Him!

    Hugs and love,
    Mrs. Samter

  2. Hi Caresse,

    Great job on the quilt!

    We'll be praying for your surgery. You know ... my Carissa just had her 3rd knee surgery in 2 years. So, she can relate to you. She has had a great recovery, and just headed back to Argentina yesterday.

    Hope you can wait until after the holidays for the surgery.

    We love you!

    Laurel & the gang :)
