Still Feeling Okay

Just a bit stiff/numbness on my left side at night, but it's not a problem. Saw the primary yesterday, no work for two weeks, although I think I'll pop in on Monday and catch up a bit. I have pain management on Friday, so that'll be okay. The GI is scheduling one of the tests and calling today about it. The rheumy is keeping me on the low dose steroids until at least Mid-July and we have another follow up. I went for two long walks yesterday, maybe a mistake, but I couldn't resist the weather.

No crocheting, although suddenly I am itching to do something, just don't know what. I haven't done anything at Ravelry except my profile. The Modular Crochet Book came in to the library and Mike picked it up for me, so I can play with that. I've been reading like crazy since being in the hospital and off all things, some vampire paranormal funny romances (I guess that's what they are)-a genre I have never, ever read, never considered, but somehow read the first one and between Paperback Swap and the library, have only two more to go to have read all 7 of em. MaryJanice Davidson is the author and they're actually pretty light, fun reads. The fact I read two while in the hospital shows how easy and upbeat they were to get through, considering they're the "Undead" series.

I may play around a bit with the knitting needles after pain management on Friday.

BTW, while I was in the hospital, my baby brother went to a flea market on Saturday and stopped at the hospital on the way home. He had brought a friend with him. He bought me 60 skeins of yarn at the flea market. They were all stored in a cedar chest and yes, his friend checked the dye lots and they all matched. I haven't looked at it yet, but my husband saw it and mentioned (Imagine a sniffy tone here "I believe it's all acrylic"-yes, from the husband who doesn't notice). In any event, lots of colors I am told and they're be good for a scrap ripple ghan, etc. I don't know where I will store them all, so far they are in the back of my car. It was still nice my baby brother, who could care less about any fiber, saw them and picked em up for me.

Elena has a school trip today, which I am missing part of it because I am not up to the hour drive and walking around the museum with the entire first grade class (all four classes), but I may hit the park they're going to afterwards.

Hope everyone has a terrific hump day!

Sara said...

I'm glad to hear you're feeling a little better. It's great that you were able to walk a bit.

And don't I wish my family would buy 60 skeins of yarn (fiber content be d*mned)

Offspring read those books and LOVED them. There's also a series be Charlaine Harris...Dead Until Dark is the first book.

Hope you get back to crochet feel good soon.

That's such a sweet thing for your brother to do, and the fact that his friend knew to check the dye lots is amazing. Mike's becoming a yarn snob. That's so funny! You'll have to try the acrylic for your knitting practice. It will probably be better to use than cotton for starters.

Praying you'll continue to improve!

Alexis said...

I am so glad you're feeling better. I hope the GI stuff works out OK. :-/ I'll be sending happy get-well vibes your way!

Yay for your brother for giving you yarn! :)

Megan said...

It's awesome that you're feeling a bit better! And what a sweet thing for your brother to do! Can't wait to see what you make with the yarn :)

Sandra said...

BTW, great baby brother you've got! Anyone who gives me yarn...no matter the content...is a keeper!

Mimi said...

You have a sweet brother...I have 5 brothers and I bet none of them would one day surprise me with yarn ;)

I'm glad you're starting to feel better!

Don't matter what it's made of, 60 skeins of yarn is a heck of a nice surprise :) Very nice brother.
