Distractions

I know I said I wouldn't do it, but I did. I started a new sweater.

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.

Oh man. I'm glad he's okay. That is one of the hardest things about being a parent--watching your kid in pain and not being able to do anything about it.

Thanks for sharing your good news that all is well again. Knitting is definitely the best thing for those situations and I'm glad it gave you the comfort you needed.

Oh! I'm sorry your little guy had to go through that! Knitting is such a great thing to have / to do.
