11 Aug '04 - 164 W - + 17 - 10 It's the little things...

When you are stuck in bed for weeks at a time, it's really the little things that count.  One of the hospital's social workers came in a few days back to see how I was doing with the inactivity.  She wanted to know if I had enough to do, or if I wanted something.  Apparently, knitting and needlepoint are pretty popular requests, but I don't really do much of either, so she suggested some sort of art project.  So, this morning, the nurses brought in a selection of paint-by-numbers kits.  I'm so excited!  Isn't that sad??  Anyway, today promises to be a (relatively) full day.  As Dan said, the doc has given me permission to not only sit in a real chair, but actually do a little walking.  We also have an ultrasound scheduled for this morning, and I have the afternoon to start painting.    What fun!

Art projects – what cool memorabilia you’ll have for the little guy! OK, I wasn’t hospitalized like you, but I did latch hook like a fiend before Jacob was born. He has some cute pillows as reminders of my obsession :)

What about some knitting…for Dan? I could bring some yarn and needles if he was interested. Abby
