Happy healing ----- knitters have a solution for EVERYTHING! And, a little wool never hurts. ;-)

Hope all goes well. It looks like there might be a little bit of a smile under all that wooly goodness.

I may have to try that later with Ashleigh. She got her wisdom teeth out today but being older they were somewhat impacted and she is in more pain then we had hoped. So glad I'm able to be here with her.

I know you are thinking about your Mom today.
hugs,
Linda

Hello, handsome nephew! Hope you're feeling better!

Remembering our Mom today.

Mrs. C said...

That's too funny! Hope everyone is on the mend and the "nurse" is hanging in there also! :)

Betsy said...

Aww! I love the smile that you can see from inside the cowl. What a great idea. You are much more creative than I am. I would have slapped the bag of ice in a towel and said there you go!

Prayers for you and Claudia and your family in what will be a year of difficult days-today as one of them.
Blessings my friend,
Betsy

Hi Meredith.. your handsome son seems to be doing well with his recovery! What a great idea to use a cowl to hold the ice pack on his cheek! See, you are a great nurse and mom! I'm packing for the camping trip.. I'm taking WAY too much stuff. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Joy said...

Oh isn't your boy such a handsome lad, and with gorgeous eyes - and he's still smiling through the pain, bless him! Great idea Meredith and I hope he's soon better.
Enjoy your happy memories of your sweet Mom on her special day lovely!
Big hugs and love, Joy xo

Such a clever icepack holder, and comforting, too, because you stitched it, Good Mama Nurse Meredith :) Sending hugs as you remember your mom.

My youngest son and I drove up to Mt. Hood today and actually saw folks still skiing even though it was 83 degrees! xx

Taciana Simmons said...

What a clever idea my dear Meredith. My daughter just had her wisdom tooth taking out last summer... I wish I had had this idea ... Her ice pack holder wasn't as pretty... Hope he gets better soon.
I hope the good memories you had with your mom has kept her alive and close to you. Happy birthday to her 💕
