This is just a quick YOP update. I am writing this on my tablet from my hubby's hospital room.
As for the sweater for the grand daughter........it has been worked on quite a bit over the past 4 days. I have added about 7-8 inches on the body. I did have a bit of a scare on Friday, when I found three dropped stitches in the lace yoke. I took a crochet hook and wove them into what looked like the rest of the lace pattern and then tied a knot in the stitches. When I finish the body of the sweater I will do s teeny bit of sewing to insure those stitches never come loose again.
Hubby had his surgery on Thursday. Unfortunately they had to cut him open to do it. We had hoped for laprascopic surgery, but there was too much involved for that to happen. They removed 14 inches of his colon and it was adhereing to his kidney. Surgery lasted almost 3 hours and then another 2 hours in recovery. Everything looks good so far and we are waiting for the final pathology report. All indications so far still point to diverticulitis.
We were hoping to have him home by today but looks like it will be Tuesday at the earliest. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and good wishes.
Next week I will have pictures for you.........of the sweater!!!!!!
