Three letters that I hate. ICU. I also hate CCU. My husband is in the ICU/CCU floor of the hospital. The seizures were uncontrollable and he had to be moved to a place where he could be monitored and medicated heavily.

until next time.......

ride number three

My husband has now taken a ride to the hospital in an ambulance 3 times. He is back in the hospital. Please pray for him.

until next time.....

it continues

my poor baby Rudy is sick and we had to take him to the vet. He has a urinary track infection and diabetes. He is now on special food and if it doesn't help him he will have to get and insulin shot every day. Poor boy. He is 10 and getting up there in age but he is a sweet kitty.

Thinks are still difficult with my husband's epilepsy. Our life is built around doctor's visits, blood tests and ER visits.

Spinning is taking over my life. I have been making all kinds of fun yarn. Some of it will be for sale soon. I will post pictures tomorrow with all of the details.

until next time.......

cross it off the list

Creatively I am in a small slump but have a few things that I am working on. I love this knitty pattern and want it in crochet, so I have worked up a cute little scarf that I am calling Dalia. The center of the flower is the "button" to close the scarf. I already need to make a few for family. They work up super fast and only use one skein of yarn too. This little scarf also hides my double chin, if only I could wear it in the summer time :-)

I have gotten quite a few emails regarding my last post about my frustration with the crochet community. Thanks to those of you who read through my anger and wrote me kind and caring notes. Dealing with an illness is taxing, it wears on my soul. I will stay around, and let the negativity roll off my back. My designing will again be my focus point so expect some more patterns on my site. Most will be free. The business side of me is just not there any more.

I have a few things that I can cross off my list of 100 things that I want to do but dont think it will ever happen list.

1- riding in the front seat of an ambulance at 85 miles an hour
2- getting a private room at a hospital and being happy about it

We were back in the hospital on Monday, it was a really bad day. 17 seizures in 3 hours. How much can a body handle? How much can I handle?

My grandmother who is 90 fell on Monday night and broke her hip. She had surgery today and will be in ICU stepdown for a day. Her hip was repaired and she will be able to move again. I once again was in the hospital today.

until next time...........
