I did a lot of waiting in the hospital for tests and was mostly feeling well, except for the numb foot thing! So..when taken out of my normal fast moving routines with the kids, I got a lot done!!
I finished 3 books: Eat. Pray. Love. by Elizabeth Gilbert, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and The Visible World by Mark Slouka. Once the MRI results were nearing, I couldn’t concentrate on reading and moved on to knitting. In the meantime, I had also hand pieced two Dear Jane blocks for my swap with Katy.
Once I received word that it looked like the MRI showed evidence of MS and that I would be doing a lumbar puncture next, I was a bit of an emotional mess and alone in a hospital, so picked up the knitting and went to town… Here is the sock I finished in the hospital. This is also going to Katy! I am a few inches into the second sock and plan to bring it for car knitting when I head off on Thursday with our patchwork group for a quilting exhibition in Dublin. Will take photos for a new post.
Here is a quilt I did on Sunday and have been doing the stitchery for the last few days…it will be my Paddy’s Day seasonal quilt for my entryway quilt shelf, just need to sew down the binding at our patchwork group meeting tomorrow.
I am slowly getting my head around it all, and the numbness is getting a bit better now. I will start medication in a few weeks and hope it will help further attacks from happening or happening as often. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the huge outpouring of support. Nearly everyone seems to know someone who has MS and who is getting on great in life. It is all very inspiring! I hope to reply to everyone, but haven’t gotten a start yet… Just know that it means so much to me to be supported by my blogging friends.
