Snowbear - I'm so glad you came back! I was just thinking one of my cousins had, I believe, 2 brain tumors ... 15? at least 15 years ago, and I don't think there's been a recurrence since then. So there's a little more hope for you.
I've never knit a washcloth - but now I have a reason to. ANd I was just fondling my one lonely ball of Classic Elite Beatrice (got it on sale, couldn't resist even just one skein
), wondering what to do with it .... now I know!!
Good luck, lots of hope, and massive amounts of stregnth, Snowbear!
