Taken yesterday at Henry Vilas Zoo
Thanks for all the well wishes. M's surgery went well, although it seemed to take for fricking ever. I guess it was about 30 minutes in all, but every minute seemed like three. Ever have an experience like that? She was not herself when she came out of the anesthesia, but regained composure (after smacking a slushy drink all down my shirt-chilly!) after about 10 minutes. Those minutes were long, too.
However, yesterday, a day after the surgery, she seemed back to herself. She's getting used to having the wrap on her hand. We need to keep it on and dry until her return appointment to have the stitches removed. Any suggestions about how to keep a toddler's wound dressing clean and dry? I didn't think so. We snagged some more wrap supplies before we left. We should find out on Wednesday what exactly it was they cut off her wrist.
No time for a long post today, but Mandy asked for "Best Ever" knits and here is mine:
This is a Wonderful Wallaby knit from Elann Naturelle 8/8, a cotton/acrylic blend. I wear it constantly when the weather is chilly and it was roomy enough to accommodate a pregnancy, too. It makes me feel cozy and it ushers in Fall, which I adore. It's plain, simple, but I don't know what I'd do without it.
