So almost two weeks ago I had my gall bladder removed. I was not excited about it but, ya know, it was necessary. My surgeon told me I should take 2 weeks off of work but I was determined that 3 days would do it. I was wrong. He was right. Tomorrow will be the two weeks point and I am finally feeling better. Not all the way back with the energy and I still feel a little pain in two of the incisions but holy crap it feels like it’s been a long time.
Now I had the surgery on Monday and Tuesday Lousmith had to run to Toronto until Friday. I was sad about it but I did have Ryan to take care of me. The photo above is of my Wednesday breakfast. That is love right there. Notice the 1/3 of a pound of butter spread so nicely on that bread. Love from a five year old. You really can’t beat pretzels for breakfast. I have to be honest here. On Wednesday I was feeling a little sick to my stomach and asked for a slice of bread for breakfast. He was just following my requests.
Before I went to the hospital on Monday I thought hard about what I should work on while I was recovering. I knew there would be pain medication and the projects I have in progress wouldn’t work. I had just finished spinning some lovely yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts Fiber. It is a blend of merino and mohair. I bought the top from The Fold booth at SOAR last year. I stepped out of my usually box with the colors but I love them.
