Is it over yet?

It's Sunday, January 11, 2009. I am finished. I am done. Enough is enough!

My mother fell in the house this morning and broke her hip. We spent most of today in the ER. She was admitted and will have surgery tomorrow.
Mom has a very high pain tolerance and will work hard in rehabilitation after the surgery. Right now she has a nice IV with pain meds and is resting fairly well.
I will tote my knitting with me during the surgery wait.

Someday (hopefully soon) my posts will return to fun and lots of finished knitting. I am shouting loud and clear, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH of 2009!

...........and so I knit.

p.s. I plan to silently repeat "Dear God, please put a hand on my shoulder and a hand over my mouth." This is so I can deal with family "drama" tomorrow. I just hope it works:)

Oh good grief! Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse!!! Dang, I sure hate that for your Mom! Tell her that I hope she is feeling better soon!!

And many hugs to you!! It's got to get better sometime! Surely....

Do you need more yarn? Your stash has got to be running low with all the stress knitting you've been doing... just let me know, I'll share! LOL

Remember Anne Murray's Little Good News?

Good luck. Seriously.

And thank goodness you dye your own yarn. Do you need funds to buy more base and dyes?

More long-distance pleas for Mr. Bettis to be a good boy...

Oh, bless your heart! You've had more than your fair share!

I hope your mom does well in surgery. ((hugs)) to both of you.

How's your Dad doing, btw?
