Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn



Honey is out of surgery and the boy is drugged.  We started our day at 5:30 AM.  He was out of surgery at 10:30 AM, but almost had to buy his way out of the recovery room.  He didn’t think it was necessary to breathe. The surgeon said his bicep muscle was rolled up in a little ball.  It’s now reattached and honey will have to keep his elbow bent for 4 weeks so the muscle can heal.

It’s now 6 PM and I’m taking a little break at the hotel, and then I’m going back to tuck him in.  This is what I worked on for 12 stinkin’ long hours today!  (I don’t know how people sit and wait like that without knitting.  I would have run screaming down the hall!)

Actually, this photo is from January of this year.  It’s about 4 times longer now.  I may finish the back yet tonight.  Actually, I probably won’t because my eyes don’t want to stay open.

More later.  Must go tuck Honey in.

  1. Hope your husband feels better soon. Lovely knitting. I know what you mean. I would have gone mad without something to knit at the hospital. It’s a great stress release.

  2. SO glad for all of you that your Honey is safely out of surgery and recovery room and into the hospital room. Thanks to Him for giving the personnel the ability to treat Honey effectively. Hope you have a fitful sleep tonight as someone will be a handful the next few weeks unless he’s well strapped. (and maybe even then.)

  3. I’m so glad he made it through okay! Thank God for knitting, eh? :0)

  4. Glad the surgery went well – hope he recovers quickly. Great cables!

  5. Here’s to a speedy recovery!!

  6. It was nice to have you check in with us about your honey. I know what you mean about the waiting. I’ve been their while my husband had extensive back surgery and my knitting was my salvation. I don’t know how non knitters calm themselves, whether it’s standing in line at the bank or in a waiting room of a hospital. Make sure to take care of yourself by getting plenty of rest and feeding your body during this time.

  7. I’m glad your H is all fixed up and is ready to heal up. Waiting is a hard job, too. Take care of your H and yourself, too! Tell him “Get Well Soon!”

  8. Im glad it went well. That is a tough postion to keep your elbow in! Hope the recovery is quick.

  9. Glad to hear all is well. It’s funny how when you come out from under you think everything is just fine and everyone is yelling at you, “Breathe, breathe.” In your head you are thinking I am breathing, that’s why I am here.” I hope he doesn’t go crazy holding that arm still for so long.

  10. Maria,
    What do you mean he didn’t want to breathe? That doesn’t sound good. I’m praying for you both!
    Love and Joy,

  11. Glad to hear the surgery went well.

  12. Oh, I should join in your WIPS challenge. I went from 3 to, what, 7? Those socks are great. I love the length AND the cables! They are going right in my queue.
