My friend is home from the hospital!
She said that she could lay around at home as good as she could lay around at the hospital. She's got a great attitude.
The tests on her lymph nodes came back. Out of 15 tested, only one came back positive for cancer. This node was the one closest to the original site of the cancer.
She told me that she's going to go ahead and go through chemo to kill any rogue cancer cells.
So, I'll probably start working on some hats soon. Here
is a pattern that I thought I would make one of...just to gauge her reaction.
My daughter doesn't think she'll like it. I think she might find it funny. We'll see.
I've begun work on the throw. It's coming along nicely. I've completed two full pattern repeats. I will probably do three more, possibly four. It's not too bad, despite the complexity of the cables. I researched how to knit cables without a cable needle, and I've pretty much got that down pat.
Here's a picture of my progress thus far (it actually only shows one pattern repeat -- I finished a second repeat after taking the picture).
Please continue to keep her in your prayers. She thinks she'll probably start chemotherapy in about three weeks, after her body has had time to heal from the surgery.
