I’m really touched at all the emails and comments I got about my surgery yesterday – it was very nice and helped me get through a long and trying day. I had to wait about two hours at the hospital before my surgery…and then it went very fast. I woke up in recovery, and they gave me pain medication. I remember they asked me if it was working, and I said that it still hurt. They offered me morphine….but I turned that down – and asked for coffee!
When I got back to the room, they finally did bring me a cup of coffee. It was the best I’ve ever had but Larry tasted it and said it was pretty bad so we think it was the drugs). I recovered fairly quickly, and was back home by 6:00.
Do you think its a bad sign that people from work send you flowers that look like a drink? Maybe one too many jokes about drinking on the weekend?
I had a pretty crappy night, but I’m feeling better today. I called the doctor, though, to schedule my follow up visit and couldn’t get in before next Friday – and they don’t want me to work until then. I’m not sure what I’m going to do – I really need to get back to work by Monday. Lots of things going on there, and I really don’t want to mess up my projects by not being in. I was pretty surprised as the doctor originally told me to just take this week off…and that it would be fine after that. Larry suggested staying home until next Wednesday, and then seeing how it was then (a week after). Anyone have knee surgery and any experience with this?
On to knitting…
I’m still clipping along on the shawl – I messed up one row, but immediately found the mistake and fixed it. I’m not sure that the row gauge is correct, but I can always add more to make it long enough.
I also joined a new KAL today – Spun Stitches – the premise is that you spin something and make a shawl by the end of the summer. I need a push to spin some of my roving and actually use it. I usually just put it in the stash and it just sits there. I’ve only used my handspun once for socks, so using it for a shawl will be exciting!
OK, just took a pill so I better sign off before I doze off….
