"You are right where we want you to be.

A week and a half ago, Ray had some back spasms and ended up with an ambulance ride to the ER. The pain was terrible and there was also the fear that the cancer had spread. The ER doctor got x-rays and said they looked clear. He diagnosed a back strain and back spasms. So Ray's been resting and recovering. There is a possibility that he has overdone the exercising and bike riding!

Today we were back at University Hospital in Madison seeing Ray's cancer doctor for his 3-month check since the cancer surgery. Ray got a great report. The doctor said "You are right where we want you to be." Ray appears to be cancer free. Next check is in three months. Feeling very blessed!

As far as quilting - not a whole lot is happening. That will change soon - we are headed to Iowa for Quilt Camp in a couple of weeks! But first we'll spend some time with my brothers in northern Wisconsin. I'm looking forward to being back at the lake - we haven't been there since 2010 and it is definitely time!


  1. I can't begin to tell you how glad I am to hear that Ray is cancer free!!!

    Enjoy your upcoming trips!

  2. Wonderful new about Ray being cancer free!! My heart sank when I read "an ambulance ride!" Sure glad it was a back strain and back spasms. Good that he's resting that back. My daughter if fighting a back problem & I know it sure can be bad. Hope he's feeling better soon! ((Hugs))

  3. Wonderful news about being Cancer free. Hope the resting is helping his back pain - tell him to remember he needs to ease into workout routines next time =). Have a wonderful visit with your family.

  4. Glad Ray is doing so well. You never know what will trigger such pains. Hubby passed out from a muscle cramp that was way worse than normal, and ended up riding in an ambulance to the ER, and staying overnight last month. He checked out great, thank goodness.
