This week I've had my most "favorite thing" of all time -- Surgery! One of the metastatic malignancies I'm carting around ate thru 75% of my femur (that great big bone between hip & knee, for those who are anatomy-challenged). It was at severe risk of fracturing, so now I have a titanium rod inside it to prevent that rather messy & certainly painful possibility. I asked the doctor if he could find an adamantium rod instead, then had to explain what that was. Now I'm thoroughly equipped: I've a wheeled walker, an extended reach doohickey, a tub seat, and an extra tall toilet seat. But hey! I can actually bear some weight on my leg now! Unfortunately, our tiny crackerbox home is very difficult to maneuver through with the walker. And it still has a lot of repair work that needs doing -- only how? I suppose we could rent another place for a few weeks or months.
I was not able to get much knitting done in hospital, as I had an IV in my hand that hurt. But I've been working on the 2nd sleeve for the Gramps cardi, even putting in lifelines ( as Dog is my witness, I'm not starting over a fourth time!). When the sleeves are done, it'll be time to work the raglan decreases of the yoke, and make the buttonband & collar. Not much left! I'm eager to see it done.
