More progress...


And some more of these blocks done...A lot of quilters are scrambling to get their centers of this Quiltville mystery quilt done before Friday, when the final clue comes out. I have nine more of these blocks to complete....and I am thinking of ways to set them. I know Lori, and Kathy, and Cindy and Wendy and Michelle and Mary Lou and Gail and Jeanne
are all working hard on their quilts...will we make it???



*******************Nurse's notes**************************


The patient was a psych patient, and talked and talked and talked..., and just generally needed a lot of attention. The nurse was in the room, and while glancing at the monitor to record the vital signs, noticed a "lead off" alarm...and noticed the patient was quiet, which was very unusual...and then looked at the patient, who rolled her eyes back in her head, and fell back in the bed. This was not a No lead off situation, she went from talking and smiling to totally flat line (asystole) in two seconds!!! Code called, successful resuscitation at 10 AM. The patient was resuscitated and was totally fine, talkative, just fine!! At 12:10...the same thing!! Resuscitated in a few seconds with Epinephrine and Atropine and compressions...back to talking away again! 13:30... code number three!! Got her back again, just as fast...and screamed for the doctor to come and put in a stat pacemaker each time she coded....


And the patient got her pacemaker, and was so sweet and appreciative, and went home!! And came back and visited and was just a doll...her family said her personality was totally different after the codes and that she was so much better! The end!! The very happiest ending for all!!

Oh they are just awesome! I love it!

So this means that all the psych patients we get on telemetry really only need a pacemaker to cure them? Forget psych consults--schedule cardiology consults for them all! lol

Nice save!

RRCB beauty! That's a LOT of sewing, even if it is just putting units together!

Great patient story--lucky woman to be where she was when she was with nurse in the room. Wow! What a roller coaster.

I'm working on mine...I still have most of the HSTs to sew. I really enjoyed making the string blocks. This is my first of Bonnie's mysteries, and I'm loving it. Your blocks are great! Looks like you will be ready for the next step on Friday.

Keep them coming, your blocks look great. I'm excited to see what the border is going to look like. BTW Thanks for posting the links to other RRCB participants, it fun to see them all.

Tonya Ricucci said...

your blocks look great and woah, good thing someone was there for the patient.

Eileen said...

Your blocks look good, Julie.I just got all mine done today and still have some of the Strip blocks to finish.sewed a few of the border pieces together to see how that was going to work. I must say it is different from anything I have made before.

Sure glad the patient survived. I was afraid she wasn't going to. Pacemakers do wonders.DH had one for 12 years.
