Feeling Under the Weather...
This gray yarn and these wonky stitches look just like I feel. Normally I wouldn't share this on my blog however I feel it is important for others...just in case.
This photo is of a scarf I was crocheting. I had it out the other day to see if I wanted to complete it. No. I wanted to pull it all out and begin anew. It is just too drab and dreary. It has no pizzazz. This is just how I am feeling. Last week when I got so sick Mr. C wanted to take me to ER and I refused. I had him Google gallbladder and appendicitis and when both told of symptoms of sharp pain on the right side I was relieved as my pain was on the left side. On the eighth day I was out of options and in such pain I had to call my doctor's office. They told me to go straight to ER for tests they wouldn't be able to do in their office. Mr. C drove me to ER and stayed with me. I was there about 6 hours. Actually no waiting time and all of the doctors and nurses were very kind and attentive.
Turns out to be a kidney stone that is 4+mm in size. I didn't even realize women got such things. Somehow I only thought men got them. So now I am home and awaiting the birth of my stone. If only it would be a rare and beautiful pearl. No further details from me.
I haven't been creative. I haven't been able to read blogs or emails. I haven't sewn or glued or glittered anything. I am drowning in a lake of water having to drink 10 glasses per day. Sitting is the worst but I am not to stay in bed. I did some house chores this morning but that was not a good idea. We had snow last Thursday and Friday. Today was sunny and nice but I was indoors and missed it.
So for now I shall merely be content in knowing what my pain and illness really is.
I miss each of your blogs and happy creative spirits.
My mantra for now..."This too shall pass"
