It's December!!

Can you believe it's December? The holidays are right upon us! It seems like after Labor Day, the rest of the year just flies by. I have been rather lazy with my blog since all this medical hullabalu started! I hope to change that starting now! I have always enjoyed my blog, writing it, reading comments and visiting with other bloggers.

Good news! I am off of the low potassium diet! I have no diet restrictions. It's funny how badly you want something when you are told you can't have it anymore! For now, the phrase "let them eat cake" is being taken in full context around here! Cheese cake, that is! lol. Cake, ice cream, pizza and so much more.

The test results are looking good so far. I know I have a long way to go and then keeping it maintained but for now I have comfort in knowing things are moving forward and looking better with each treatment. I am definitely feeling better than I did back in September when all of this first began for me so that is a step in the right direction!

I don't feel like I have gotten much stitching done the past several months what with doctor appointments and some awful hand cramps but here is my progress report. I have two WIPs that I want to finish up before the end of the year. I bought some therapeutic gloves and wrist supports that I hope will help out with the hand cramps.

While at the infusion center, I started on Apostle's Creed by My Big Toe. I needed something to do while just sitting there all hooked up. Well, actually I started it at home so I would have some of it done and could just continue from there. It is a peaceful stitch. I changed more of the colors than I had originally planned to do. I love the recommended threads but I just felt the need for something with ALOT more color. I get plenty of eager eyes wanting to see what I am working on or how much progress I have made at the reception desk, in the elevator and in the office.

Thanks for stopping by again. Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

That is such good news, Sherry! I'm so glad things are going well for you and that you're off that diet and can eat what you want. Whew! Hope your recovery continues apace and you are back to normalcy really soon. Love your stitching progress!

What good news that you are feeling so much better! I love the color changes that you made on the MBT chart. Would you be willing to share the colors you used? It's just lovely!

Congrats on the good news of your health! Don't over do it now... I think yours is the first I have seen of the Apostles Creed. Looking forward to seeing it as you progress. Hugs!

Great news on the medical front, Sherry!
I don't think I have seen this Apostle's Creed pattern before and I really like what you have done with it.
Isn't it amazing how a little stitching in your lap will bring people around to see what you're doing? :)
