my world has stopped spinning (temporarily)
Please pardon the long absence. My husband went into the ER yesterday and was finally admitted to the hospital late last night. He hadn't been feeling very well for most of last week and then he just worsened over the weekend. He's still at the hospital and will be there indefinitely. I spent most of today there with him and got a lot of knitting done! Though I am quite tired..and of all days to find the monkey at the house, my dumb brother had to pick today!! I just spent the last hour or so scrounging for all the necessary paperwork in order for my husband to be considered for a certain program at the hospital. Goodness. Of all times for this to occur--when I'm not working and no longer have insurance. Ugh. The good that came out of this is we at least have an idea of what was causing him to be so sick for so long and they are taking the necessary steps to get him back on track. Tomorrow is going to be a big day for him. And it's going to be an early one. It's also his birthday. Can you imagine having to spend your birthday in the hospital? His friend said at least he's able to have another birthday which is very true. Christmas was good. It was nice having my sister around too. For a few days I was able to forget that I was still unemployed (and pathetic!). I received my first sewing machine! It's a mini-one but still a sewing machine. I'll try to get a picture of it once all the madness has settled--or has settled a teeny bit. Can I tell you that that was all I wanted?? (*I had intended to post on my blog about how all I wanted for Christmas was a sewing machine but never got around to it but apparently, someone did hear me.) I was a bit worried and thought maybe I was getting a wii fit for Christmas since I didn't see a box the size of a sewing machine anywhere but whew! I was very wrong.:) My parents gave me money so I was able to get a cute knitting bag, a subscription to Interweave Knits since I had to discontinue mine, a picture frame with a pic of myself and my hubby at the wedding from my sister, a portable dvd player, oh and some sundara yarn! :) Photos to come in future posts! I also was able to finish a cowl last night while we were in the ER and late last night I cast on for maximus. I'm nearly finished with it after all the knitting from today! So pictures will be up shortly..possibly after the new year (unfortunately but we'll see..). If I don't make it back here before the new year, I hope everyone has a grand one!
