Good News

I finally have good news to report. I just came home from looking at a subacute or medical rehab for my husband. He may be able to leave the hospital the earliest Friday or by Monday or Tuesday of next week. He still is very sick but he is doing SO MUCH BETTER then the doctors thought he would. I don't know how much function he will regain but he is still with us. He is totally yellow, skin and bones and half asleep most of the time but he is looking great to me! This rehab is an easy 20 minute drive from my house, and the dog will be able to visit with him! He has been in the hospital since May 30th and still has not been out of bed. He is being fitted for a brace and hopefully will be able to sit up and get out of bed soon. I never would have thought that I would be happy to see Bob in this shape but given what we thought was happening not too long ago I am very happy with his progress. I know that everyone prayers and good thoughts helped him so much. So far I have finished THREE pairs of socks since he was has been in the hospital. They are not my best work but they did keep me sane!!! I'll post a picture when I am not so tired.

A wonderful update...and a collective sigh from the whole family. Three pair of socks? wow, that's a lot of knitting... I'm knitting away and can't seem to finish anything! Keeping you all in my prayers

Great news about Bob! And 3 pairs of socks!!! I'm impressed - I'm still working through sock #1 of my second pair (ever, not this week!). Anyway, glad to hear things are improving. Still thinking of you.

Fran--That's wonderful news! I hope the next part of his recovery goes smoothly for all of you. I'm looking forward to seeing the socks! When my husband was in the hospital several years ago with a sudden onset of pericarditis I was working on a pair of socks. I knit so tightly that the heels still show few signs of wear! The effects of stress on knitting gauge...
