Had to post and express my thanks for all your kind words. I am so touched by the kindness from this wonderful "support group" of women that I have been fortunate enough to discover through our mutual love of knitting. Thank you!
I made it through the surgery... hope I make it through the next 48 hrs... this is pretty horrific... I couldn't have imagined this pain... and I thought childbearing was tough?!
Excuse me now while I go collapse in a heap. I'll return when I am more coherent.
PS - Nora http://www.black-dog-knits.blogspot.com This is such an incredibly busy time in your life - with all you've got on your plate - I can't believe your thoughtfulness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
