I miss you so! Thanks, Amy! I get online briefly (very briefly) each day and check mail and I'm happy to say that Amy (horve1) and I have become great friends since the yarn swap last year, so we stay in touch daily and I told her how I was missing you guys! But, I don't even look over here or I will sit too long which will exasperate the problems. Update: doc wanted to put me in hospital last week but he had to go out of town and there would be no one to manage my care (he is a pain specialist and out on his own now). So they increased my pump, got a shot of steroids (I'm allergic to nsaids), gave me oral pain meds for break through pain and valium to take every 6 hours for the severe spasms...all in addition to my other meds. LOL, one would think that would kill the average bear, but I'm not the average bear after being on pain meds with this situation for many, many years. ANd orders to stay in bed.
FYI...vacation was great! Things happened after vacation that put me in this state.
It took a few days, but I finally got pics of most of my knitty Christmas goodies on my blog
. I hope to upload pics of the other things in the next few days, too.
As for knitting...not a lot happening because the pain is even too intense to knit the majority of the time...but, I do have a few new patterns worked out...hopefully "A Touch of Whimsy" socks will be out soon!
psammeadred, I'm so HONORED that you chose to knit one of my designs! Thank you...can't wait to see a picture and hope you allow me to post it in the Knitters Gallery on my blogs.
That's it for me, gotta lay back down...
love and really miss you all
Please keep me in your prayers, there's still a possibility that I may go in hospital when my Doc returns and I don't like (hate, really) the hospital!
Oh, in case you were wondering....YES, Lonnie has been taking wonderful care of me and, of course, spoiling me rotten!
