This is what happens when I catch a cold

Woken up by sharp chest pain at 3 am. More but less intense several other times later in the morning.The cardiologist told me it didn’t go on long enough for it to be my heart–and a phone call was as close as I was able to get to actually seeing him. Just more lupus hit’n’run stuff no biggy.

The Crohn’s, it snarls.

He told me to go see my family practitioner and I said okay and with that good intention took my fever straight back to bed for most of the day. But I did, at one point, quite deliberately get up and order that last cone of aqua dk silk from Colourmart, a color I like but had not tried yet. Just to make a declaration to myself and to look forward to knitting it. This is just a blip.

I can’t wait to read about you knitting the aqua silk. Hope you feel better soon and your new yarn arrives soon, too. I know … “Patience” …. If the skein manages to get to you before you’re up to knitting, you can indulge and enjoy the comfort of “Pet yarn.” I truly believe in the magic of therapy pets.

It’s tough to keep hanging in there, especially when new demons come along, but the rewards will come. My prayers continue.

Adding my prayers to those sent your way. May you be ready to knit that silk – and other wonders – soon!

Add me to the chorus of get well wishes and sending positive thoughts. And I agree, planning the next project and petting yarn helps get your mind of the yucky stuff. Hope this blip is over soon.

I hope that you are feeling much better these days than you were on the 27th of January!
