Not the Week I Expected to Have
It was a wild week. Monday, I went to the walk in clinic to see about a muscle I pulled a month ago which wasn't getting any better and wound up in the emergency room at 1am getting diagnosed with a blood clot. How does it go from "You should've waited to schedule an appointment with your regular doctor" (that was the receptionist) to a 10pm call telling me that the test results were back and I needed to get to the emergency room immediately?
If you've been reading my blog for a few years, you might remember the drama of my knee surgery and the subsequent blood clots. I've got a new one, this time with no apparent cause. Needless to say, I'm not a happy camper.
While I was waiting for the call with the blood test results, still sure that they were doing to be negative, Hubby came in with the mail and there was a box from Janice, a blog reader who had emailed me a while back that she was downsizing and had a stack of transfers she wanted to send me. That box was packed tight with Aunt Martha's patterns and older ones and some embroidered blocks and some fabric that had already been prepped with transfers... and the amazing part is that, with as many patterns as I've got in my stash and as many as I've been drooling over online for the past year, I hadn't seen most of them. A few I had seen and desperately wanted.
Tuesday afternoon, I sorted through it all while I was waiting for an appointment with the coagulation clinic. Those daily shots to the stomach that I hated so much last time around? This time I don't have to go in to the hospital every day. I get to do them at home myself -- and its twice a day. Actually, I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to do it. I really thought I'd have to get Hubby to do it. And the rat poison pills? I'm on that stuff for life.
I'm so glad to have embroidery and knitting and quilting to distract myself with. There's going to be more than one embroidered quilt. All of the pretty images I want to stitch won't fit into one quilt, even if I make it huge.
