One more Oklahoma Beauty Block!

Well, I could not work one more hour without sewing something. I had already cut out the next Oklahoma Beauty block and so I stitched it up. This makes block 16 of 30. I'm tempted to stop now but these blocks are so much fun to make!
I heard from the doggie cardiologist. Charlie is in end stage heart failure and I pretty much knew that. He prescribed doubling the dosage of the meds they gave me. This means the meds are $800 a month. He said that this is likely to extend Charlie's life by 18 months to 2 years minimum with good quality of life. How am I going to pay for this you ask? I have no earthly idea. What does someone do in this situation? I love Charlie so much and he is so much better on this medication. Have any of you guys had to come up with a large amount of money like this? Well, guess I'll get back to work! Hope everyone is having a happy Saturday! Thanks so much for your sweet, supportive comments and emails! XO and cheery wave from Bev

Love seeing each new block, so colorful!
Poor Charlie, such a cutie. I swore I'd never have another pet after being in this situation and not being able to afford the vet bill. Sell the stash, eat beans and cornbread, he's worth it!

I think this might be my favorite one yet~ but it is really hard to say that as they are all so gorgeous!
So sorry about Charlie, would the drug company offer a discount through your vet? Any samples? Doesn't hurt to ask. ;-)

Beautiful block Bev. I'm sorry to hear about Charlie. It's heart wrenching to hear about this. Is it too late to buy pet insurance since there's a pre-existing condition? I'll be thinking of you and Charlie.
