Hospital life

Tough night, if I lay on my back can't breathe, so last night they parked me in a chair with loads of blankets, so slept nearly 5 hours sitting up. When I finally get home will sleep in recliner until breathing issues are resolved.

Brought knitting with but so far not a stitch, first had IVs in both arms, now down to just one. But still not sure enuff to give it a go. When I can sit up for prolonged periods, but have been thinking of new patterns to try.

Blood clots in right leg and chest really knocked me for a loop. Today is 11th day here at Royal Inland in
Kamloops. This in a province that kicks patients out as soon as they can. Flew out from Tatla Lake in big medi vac chopper on Dec 30, got to spend New Years Eve in emergency, now that was a real experience.

  1. What an awful experience, Lynne. Thank heavens there is a good air ambulance service in this province. I'm very glad they are keeping you there until they are quite sure you are well enough to go home. Hugs to you...

  5. Oh hurray you are back ( at least to the blog)! You were greatly missed and worried about. Many of us learned of your plight via Jean Miles in Edinburgh, thus are the ways of modern technology.

    When I was in the hospital, try as I might I just couldn't find a comfortable way to knit without giving myself a wrist cramp so maybe you should just contemplate future projects for a while longer. Sending best healing wishes westward!

  10. Dear Lynne, it's great to hear from you. It sounds as if you've had a really bad time -- much worse than mine with the same affliction last summer. Hang in there, and do what the Drs tell you to do, and write again soon.

  17. Good to see you are blogging again..... Although I knew better, running off with a shepherd (Sharon in Surrey) sounded much more exciting..... I am thinking of you and send warm wishes and a hope you will be all fixed up real soon!!!

  21. Hi Lynn,

    I heard on Ravelry (via Canspin) that you were in hospital! Sounds like you are making slow progress but all is going in the right direction : )

    Take care and happy spinning (soon)
