Good afternoon everyone. I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your caring and comforting comments and emails on the passing of my sister Teri.
It all happened so fast and just seems so surreal. Teri woke up in the morning not feeling well - she said she felt like she had an upper respiratory infection because she was having trouble breathing. Her husband Donnie knew something wasn't right so he took her to the hospital. The doctors there said she was having a heart attack and needed a couple of stents to open up 2 of her heart valves, so they flew her by helicopter to Washington Hospital Center. The doctors there were able to insert the stents but for some reason they failed. They were going to try another procedure, but Teri's heart wasn't strong enough - she had another attack and passed away.

I still have trouble believing that she's gone. It just doesn't seem right.
I finished up James' sock monkey hat on Christmas Eve so I could give it to him when they came over. He liked it a lot and it fit him perfectly. I got the pattern from here:
I didn't add the ear-flaps because the hat was long enough to cover James' ears.
