Brent's Quilt

Here's the quilt we made for my brother, Brent, who will have his stomach removed on Thursday. Sounds drastic, right? Well it will be life saving for him. My other brother, Jim, died 18 months ago from stomach cancer. They both have the same congenital disease. If Jim's had been diagnosed sooner he would be alive today. What a tender mercy that Brent's was diagnosed so early. He is going into this surgery with a sense of humor, so we put some funny things on his quilt. Like a block by Karen that reads, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Have one now, here he comes!" and one by me that reads, "I may not have a colon but I am still full of crap!" since he had his colon removed years ago. We love you, Brent!
