Since my previous post, the pain of my gallbladder grew exponentially, and when it was apparent that nothing I was trying was working I decided to make the call to the general surgeon.
In less than a few days, I consulted the doctor, and promptly received the procedure on the following Monday.
It was the only surgery I have ever received, and nothing frightened me more than being "put under".
I heard people say you don't dream while you're under, and I felt comfort in that small notion, that my brain couldn't possibly be conscious on any level...
Well, I don't know whether it was during the actual surgery or in the mere seconds during wake up, but I did dream...
Let's just say it was a very unpleasant dream that I wish I could forget.
I've spent the past couple days before yesterday in bed, unable to walk without agonizing in pain from the stitches in my abdomen; this photo was taken by my wonderful hubby who took the week off work to care for me.
With the time I spent laying in bed, I spent it honing in my double knitting and loom knitting skills.
The projects I completed are meant as Christmas gifts, so I won't be able to post pictures of them until the receivers have opened them.
I made a couple hats on my loom utilizing a raspberry-like stitch.
And a wall hanging on needles that was initially meant to be something of a much much smaller scale...
I think the needles I used were far too big.

I'm searching for the perfect bat charms to add to the loops at the bottom of each marker, but they work perfectly. I made 2 sets, 6 markers for 6.5mm and lower, and 6 markers for 10mm to 6.5mm.
I'm in the process of fashioning myself a travel knitting tin containing all I would need during those long drives out of this town; hours from anywhere of note.
I'm waiting on a pair of TSA approved scissors from ebay, and I shall be complete and ready to show and tell.
