This past weekend was the Hoosier Stitchers Spring Retreat. As I mentioned in my Camping post Jeremiah got pretty sick. Wednesday I got everything packed up and was really trying to get excited. Wednesday Jeremiah just laid on the couch and rested the whole day pretty much. He had high fever on and off but Wednesday evening developed a cough. Thursday morning we loaded everything all up and took me down to a friend's house cause she was nice enough to drive to the retreat. Unfortunately after I left Jeremiah's health really went downhill. Poor guy got worse and worse until Friday night my mom decided to take him to the ER. I had a very emotional time staying at retreat and not being here where I thought I should be but Jeremiah demanded I stay and have fun. I know it would have made him feel horrible to "ruin" my time so I just kept calling every now and then to get updates and I made myself have fun so now to the fun part.
I got a TON of stitching done! We stopped on the way to shop at a cross stitch store in Bloomington Indiana called Fancy Works. It's a very nice store and I always enjoy stopping there. The owner of the store is the host of our retreat. I bought a few things that just had to follow me home of course haha. Then we got to retreat. I quickly changed into pj pants and announced Let the Relaxing Begin.
I decided to work on HAED Severeielle which I have renamed Dragon Lady cause it's easier to spell haha.

So I had a really great time. Jeremiah ended up being diagnosed with an Upper Respiratory Infection and was given an antibiotic and Tylenol with codeine. He's resting and doing a lot better. I was so happy to get home and give him some much deserved hugs. I'm glad I raised him to be so kind and to understand my love of stitching. I'm thankful for the great family I had at home to take care of him in my absence.
