Not much new

Afraid at this point in time I really don't know anything new. Rained most all day yesterday and where there were tracks on driveway went to solid ice, lets just say my driveway is now kind of challenging and more than a bit scary. And of course today was the day I had to go to the clinic in Tatla to have my blood checked, first check since getting booted out. Walk slowly around house (using Lorelee insisted cane), to the kitchen for meals, washroom, and then if I'm lucky can make to 9pm to go to bed, but I then think I should be able to do more and then remember I haven't been out of hospital a week yet (after relaxing in luxury for 24 days). Guess the strength will slowly come back (it must in time for spring Desert Mesa).

Lorelee cooked turkey supper yesterday and I certainly didn't do it justice but feel like tonight might just be different. Dee and her mom Swede Gano came down for the banquet, haven't seen either in months. So will by and by get my turkey noodle soup.

Try and knit a bit everyday, but for some strange reason the heavily patterned socks I am working on kind of escapes my muddled head. But for Tammy in NC yours I am planning on finishing first.

So keep up the messages and good cheer, I check iPad and laptop several times a day.

  1. hello up there. I think of you during my day - how you are getting on. How did you get to the doctor appointment? You didn't drive yourself? Do people salt driveways up there, or throw the cinder rock down? I hope someone wld do that for your drives so you will feel steady underfoot. I'm glad you are using a cane for a bit, then you can get to more rooms and not fall. You'll be stronger and getting about but lots of rest is needed for now. In NorCal here and we had brisk slightly rainy weather. Our sunrise was absolutely gold, rather stunning. I went in to work early and had a great view out some big big windows

    Maybe you pick up some basic basic knitting? Let your brain connect to your fingers in a nice simple basket weave square or something? I'm glad you have people visiting in.

    Take care and rest up.

  3. Moving & walking is the best medicine in the world. Deep breathing is also good - gets that Oxygen penetrating the 'Little Grey Cells' . . . Get well soon.

  4. Hi Lynne, I've enjoyed your website very much over the years and have been thinking of you daily and checking for updates ever since Jean alerted the knitting community to your illness. Take it easy! Give your body a chance to heal. Glad to hear people are helping with food right now. When I had pneumonia last year and had trouble breathing I had difficulty with knitting too. As long as I could go round and round in a simple slip stitch, I was okay. But when I had to calculate decreases it was all over! Thinking of you daily.

  5. My Mother in law is just out of hospital after pneumonia. She could not manage without her wheeled walker - makes her feel more confident, even around the home. Give yourself time and try self-patterning yarn for a while.

  8. Glad you are home and building up your strength. Don't be too hard on yourself, you were pretty sick and it will take time. Stay warm, and knit when you can. :-)

  9. I just read an article (ever read 'good news'...pretty happy stuff and happy pix), but they had an article 'knit two mittens and call me in the morning'. Seems the knitting lowers blood pressure and enables healing. I hope each day has something getting a bit better and that someone is bringing you tomatoes.

  12. Hi Lynne - advice from an old nurse - for every day in hospital,it takes 2 weeks to recover! So be patient and it will come.
    Take care

  14. So glad to know that you are back in your beloved mountain valley. That alone should help to speed up your recovery. Enjoy all the help and nourishing soups! Mundi

  15. I hope you are continuing to make a good recovery Lynne. I'm not surprised you are having trouble with the heavily patterned socks. You've gone through a lot, and it will take awhile to bounce back. It sounds like you are being well taken care of, which is a relief to know. I was quite worried about you going back to your house and being there all by yourself.
