I made some x's!

It is perhaps a sad thing when you are so excited to be coherent enough to make small x's in a piece of fabric. But that was me, last night and a bit tonight.
I worked on Stitch or Die last night, and it went well. Pic:

 
And then picked up Cheryl's Bouquet for my SAL today for a bit. Had to frog a bit as the pain meds are still playing with my head. But it was alright. Pic:
 


In other news, my parents, brother (who came in from out of town), uncle and his gal all came over for pizza and b-day cake for me. We watched the Canadians lose to the Americans in Olympic hockey. Sad. :(   But we're not out yet. Just made it alot harder for us to get to the finals.
Our pizza night was nice, and I'm glad they changed it to come to me as getting around is still a bit hard. But getting better.

I have a drs appt tomorrow just to check out the stabby sites and make sure they are okay. Hopefully goes well. (oh, and apparently it's my b-day. I'm been sooo caught up in surgery, recovery and just moving around and eating I keep forgetting.)
I am hoping to stitch a bit more tomorrow. I will (I hope) go back to work later in the week. We'll see how it goes and if I can drive or not.

Thank you all soooo much for your lovely comments on my recovery I appreciate every single one of them!

As the days pass, you'll feel less "fuzzy" and the stitching will become less froggy. Take it easy and accept every bit of pampering that comes your way!

Habibi said...

Slowly and steadily you will get better soon and will stitch more..good progress for a new patient!!

Sadie said...

Happy Birthday Mel! I am glad to hear that you are feeling a little better. Just you take care and don't rush yourself.

Get well soon. I know how difficult stitching is after an op. Your fingers want to stitch, but the meds won't let you concentrate. I found small fun projects worked well, until I could concentrate again.

Nice progress, even if you did feel fuzzy as you're recovering. Happy birthday!

Happy birthday and congratulations on WIPs progress. All is looking good! I cross my fingers that doctors have a good news for you and I hope that today you are much stronger than yesterday. Get well girl!

First: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And even if you are feeling yucky do try and do something nice for yourself. How about a little online shopping? :)

I am a bit behind on reading blogs and missed the post about your surgery. What can I say? Except did you have the laser surgery with the little holes? If you did you will be feeling better sooner rather than later. I had mine done a number (we won't say how many) years ago and let me tell you I have the 8 inch scar to prove it! No little bitty holes. Nope a scar that goes from above my waist down! My sisters had the laser type and one was back at work in less than a week! I tease and tell them that I HATE them. It took me 4 weeks to recover.

Feel better. No heavy lifting now. A needle and thread is about it.

Happy Birthday, glad your family came over to celebrate with you. It is good to get some stitching in even if it is slow, but you will be okay soon.

First, Happy Birthday! Second, just putting a few x's in has got to make you happy and if that makes you happy, that makes recovery faster!!!

Justflo said...

Take care and don't try to do too much at once. It's still a painful time.

Happy birthday to you . have a good day.
