On the Mend
So I just wanted to do a quick update post to let you all know I’m on the mend. Last Tuesday I had the works sinus surgery, including fixing the deviated septum and have been spending my time laying around the house in a Vicodin-induced haze recovering. Yesterday, I was able to get my packing out. I’m slowly getting better, but it’s going to take time.
Today I did want to make one stop. I headed with Mike and Faygo over to the vet. Poor Faygo kitty has had an ulcer on his eye that we’ve been trying to heal. Well good news is the eye looks to be healing nicely. Also we got to meet the new vet at the practice. I know it sounds silly, but we spend a lot of time at the vet and I wanted to make sure any change is in a positive direction. We’ve known for sometime that our vet has been terribly overworked being the only vet at the practice. We thought from the start a new addition was a good idea.
Anyway, she is out of school a couple of years and very vibrant. I think she’s going to be a good fit. Both Mike and I really liked her and Faygo responded positively. We got lucky as it was a slow day and we got to visit for a little bit and go through his history with her. Our regular vet popped in at the end basically to make sure we met and to see how I was feeling as he heard about my surgery.
They had a photo of her with her three dogs on the counter and one of the vet techs told us her little long-hair Chihuahua was dropped off with an exposed bone beak at the practice where she was working previously. The owner just left her, so the doc mended her up and took her home. A lady after my own heart.
So in my haze, I have been doing some knitting. Remember this tea cozy from a the 2008 holiday issue of Knit Simple? So 13 more pin tucks to go. I’m not crazy about the big pom-pom on the top, but I was thinking some knit or crochet flowers or something might work instead. Also if you’ve looked at my knitting Rav queue at all, my knitting mojo seems to have come back with a vengeance. I’m trying not to order the KnitPicks Harmony needles now that they are on sale – oh along with that cute stocking kit in blue. I know someone who would love a hand knit Christmas Stocking. Of course it would need a chunk of Grumpy for the inside.
So I’m a little worried about NaNoWriMo starting tomorrow… right now – I’m thinking I may have bit more off than I can chew with that challenge. We shall see…I may be writing unintelligible crap just to get the number up.
