YOP LIST 2024-2025

Sunday, June 16, 2024



This is the worst crafting week ever.  I won't even take a photo of my lack of progress.  There were only 3 rows added to my Habitation throw.  That's it!


I ended up with a flare in my thumb and wrist which prevented me from knitting for about 3 days.  I even tried Portuguese style and still could not knit.

Then, on Thursday night I thought it would be a fine idea to end up in the Emergency Room and then get admitted to the hospital with Afib!  I was lucky enough to go back to normal sinus rhythm, ala natural, in 12 hours but it was still not something I want to go through again.  I am on new meds and have another specialist (Cardiologist) I will be seeing often.  I got to take my first ambulance ride too!  I was released on Friday afternoon and am very happy to be home.

Luckily, Thursday morning, before I started having my issues, I managed to make a loaf of bread, do 3 loads of laundry. make the week menus, make a grocery list out and get my kitchen and dining room all cleaned up.  I was so thankful for that when I got back home.  Knowing I did not have tons of things needing to be done.  Hubby was a gem and even went grocery shopping for me with my list I made!  He's a keeper.

All is well now other than I still have a bit of a flare in my thumb.  Not sure when it will decide to leave.  My choice of anti-inflammatories is now limited because of some of my new meds!  UGH!  A vicious cycle.

Here is your chuckle for this week........It seems appropriate with all the political advertisements happening here in the States.

Until Next Time......................Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Oh, no! You had a very difficult week, indeed. I hope you’re truly on the mend all around! Thankfully there are some good treatments for heart trouble; my father had problems with Afib, then had surgery which helped. The flare is surely frustrating if it keeps you from being able to knit! Feel better soon!

  2. I hope you continue to be on the mend. Glad you were able to rest when you got home because you had completed some chores before you became ill.

  3. Thank goodness you listened to your body and didn't not ignore symptoms. My hubby has been dealing with AFib for years. He is back in rhythm and takes medication to keep him in rhythm.

  4. Oh goodness that must have been a bit scary, pretty incredible that’s your first time in an ambulance though. Fingers crossed the meds will do their job and your RA will calm itself down too. Take care of yourself, you are always busy looking after everyone else…kick back and let them help you out for a bit. Liz (Highlandheffalump)

  5. Oh MY!! so glad you are okay and are on new meds and have a cardiologist. I have one after extensive testing last year (or the year before, I forget). May your flare up ease up.

  6. Well you sure have a good attitude, girl. And a sense of humor still after all that. I'm glad you are okay, and under the care of a cardiologist. Hopefully, you'll soon be knitting like the wind again.
