The Boy had to go into the hospital for a quick surgery on Friday and I needed something to keep my hands busy. I'm still working on the cardigan, but now I'm using 2 balls of laceweight. Not too good for travel. Or mindless knitting. Which is what I needed on Friday.
Why is knitting so therapeutic? I would have gone nuts if I had to wait repeatedly and not have something to do. Hubs was half way there before The Boy even went in to the OR. The half hour or so that the surgery took was the longest and I was so happy to see the doctor and to hear him say that everything was fine.
Recovery was difficult and I never, ever want to repeat it. The Boy was not happy and pulled out his IV- yikes.
Anyways, it's over. The Boy is doing fantastic and we've been reminded just how blessed we are to have 2 healthy boys to love daily.
