Thank you all!

You blog land residents are the kindest people!  A is feeling OK, though not great.  Thursday she will have her gallbladder removed and then we hope a speedy recovery.  We had a quiet weekend, though Friday night she had another spell.  So now she is not eating anything but chicken broth and saltines, and losing weight.  Not a bad thing! She was sad to learn that a gallbladder weighs about 33 grams.  She was hoping for more like 50 pounds.   I told her “that’s a third of a skein of sock yarn.”  She was not impressed. 🙂

And because it never rains, but it pours, my dear friend B (and best knitwear customer!) said to me as we ate lunch today “Sarah, I need you to take me to the ER.”  So naturally, I did.  She was having problems with her neck, shoulder, heavy feeling in her chest.  We got to the ER, and didn’t we have the same doctor?  He must think I cruise the streets of town looking for women with funny feelings in their chests!  B is fine, it was some upper back issues, she already is feeling better, knowing that it isn’t a heart attack.

I dropped her back at work, but she was really too tired to stay.  But she was supposed to deliver some clothing to a former coworker who is in the hospital, so I will be headed back over there to deliver that for her before I head home.

When this whole episode is over, I will be OK to not be over there to the very nice Maine Coast Memorial Hospital.  Enough is enough!

Work, is of course, crazy with all this time out of the office, and I don’t quite know how to tame it, without working until midnight, which I won’t do.

Knitting helps calm me down but doesn’t get the work done.  Sigh.
