Recovery

Is slow(too slow!) but steady—Doctors appointments—and anxiety about them (2—one Tuesday, one Wednesday) is past. The lanced infection is still an open draining wound—and will continue to be for a while. There is, still the new daily routine of cleaning and dressing. There is marked improvement--(and one sure sign—itchness!)in appearance. The next follow up is in 2 week.

Nothing has been done on the crazy 8 socks—they might be put aside till next month—I think they are just to much to cope with now—There are just too many changes going on in my life right now—if I were angry (or scared—or very scared) complex knitting would be a good distraction. But I am just a bit overwhelmed—and complex knitting is just another chore.

I have lots of self striping yarns—I think its time for something dead simple—something to just knit and not think about for a while.

Even reading is going slow—I am only about half finished a book I started a week ago—and that's slow for me.

With all my introsection, and self centered concern about my health (and continued health with out insurance!) I don't feel I have anything to write about—and nothing to show either.

Maybe tomorrow will be different! --Actually I know it will be—I just hope in a more visible positive way!
