Air apparent

Thank you, everybody. Today let me up for air a bit; still sick but no chest pains. Much less nausea. I was actually able to get up in the morning rather than doing half hour intervals upright at 11 and 2 and then crumbling like the last four days.  And: I knitted! I wanted to all week but holding my arms up and me up long enough to even think about it was just out of the question. But today I got to! Wanting something that would pay off quickly, I grabbed the closest yarn that didn’t need to be wound and got about 2/3 of the way through a cowl. I actually got something done.

Richard’s stronger too. Thank you all for the good wishes and prayers sent our way: much appreciated. It helped.

And yesterday evening we got sent a video of Hudson in a baby jumper, laughing and giggling and bouncing and responding to encouragement and just being an overwhelmingly cute little bundle of six-month-old happiness.

How could one not feel better after that?

Yay! Strength for knitting is a win-win, makes you feel better too! Hoping the worst is way behind and you both are lots better today, but still, take it easy.

I always use knitting as my benchmark for knowing if I’m feeling better too. I’m so happy to hear you were able to click those needles a bit. I’m sure the video of Hudson helped too.

I’m glad you’re both on the mend, and had reason to (watch Hudson) jump for joy!

Good news! The chicken (or tomato) soup worked!
