Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Cyber hugs to you and best wishes for BD's quick and uncomplicated recovery. My thoughts are with you both.

Simply a hug to you, Dear Bess, and a wee prayer that a) BD's recovery will be smooth, swift and uncomplicated; and b) that you'll be able to catch up on your sleep!

Hospital Stays

They are like trips through the looking glass. Everyone there knows what's going on, what the words really mean, and and where the exit portal is. I got to play Alice yesterday while BD had surgery. A knitting Alice. A sketching Alice. A TV watching Alice. 11-6 I waited and knit and drew pictures. My patience was rewarded with a long chat with the surgeon who Had Information.

Turns out things were more complicated than we'd all thought, with all sorts of growthy things and complications and icky stuff. The upshot was that he had a partial thyroidectomy. I won't get all juicy on you but I will say I'm glad I have Thursday off as well. I'm expecting to go bring him home this afternoon.

The long lingering day enabled me to finish up the first red sock, cast on the second, realize I'd made a mistake and rip it all out. I'll cast on today with fewer stitches and begin the long ride down the cuff. I also did a wee bit of drawing from one of the pictures I took at Maryland Sheep and Wool. I am going to have So Much Fun working with those snapshots. I know at least 3 of them will turn into watercolors. Maybe more. Altogether it was not a bad hospital day.

So. 'tis back to the city again today and let us hope that soon I will get a full 8 hours sleep, hmmm?
