I have missed you all so much in the last month! I haven't even been well enough to look at all your finished projects!
On October 20th, I had an abcess on my intestine that I knew nothing about. It burst flooding my abdomen with poison. I was rushed to the ER and had surgery, removing half my intestines! Tough way to lose weight, let me tell you! I have an ostomy bag, but in 6-8 months they will go back in and connect everything up again after I am healed and remove it.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and I look forward to peeking in from time to time and see all the lovely items! I am not knitting right now as I get tired really easily. I have one project to go for Christmas, a rat scarf for Thomas and I hope I can get it done!

You are all the best!!! I would lay in bed at the hospital and think about what beautiful things I was missing at the site. Unfortunately, a supposed week long stay became over 2 weeks because I developed a blood infection from my central line.
Thanks so much for your good thoughts and prayers! I look forward to being back to knitting and visiting with you all soon!:muah: :muah:
