Long Time, No See

Well, without going into too gory detail, chemo once again kicked my butt, and in fact put me in the hospital with extreme dehydration. Once I was in there, they discovered that I had blood clots in my lungs. So no more of that kind of chemo.

I've bascially been a sofa slug ever since. Lots of sleeping, and not much else. I take that back. I have been knitting a bit on my Noro sweater. I'm now about 18 inches from putting it all together. I may actually finish it before too long.

I'm now giving myself shots of blood thinner twice a day (which isn't as bad as it sounds), and have met the with doc's regarding which direction we're going to be moving. We start different chemo tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes.

Family and friends have been very helpful and supportive. The flowers were from my niece and her mom. That's about all the energy I have for now. Hopefully, I'll have a better post soon.

I'm the knitter you met in Big Sur and I'm writing to send a hug and tell you to go find that stone and let it sit with you on the couch. Tell Mr. Spinner I said hi.
