BACK AGAIN.....


Well, much has happened since my last post. The biggest news being that Aaron had to have his second back surgery on Thursday (less than 2 weeks after the first one!) Somehow he had re-herniated his disk and the pain was worse than before. Poor kid! He came home Friday afternoon feeling much better. Praying that this one does the trick and he can spend the summer healing and be back to school next fall ready to go!

As he recovers, I am spending some time reclaiming my house after it was much neglected during tax season. Closets; cupboards; storage rooms are being emptied, cleaned and organized. Feels good.

Steve and Kirstin are out in San Diego (poor things) sea kayaking; shopping; eating at fun restaurants.. When he has time, Steve is taking in some of the conference that he is out there 'attending'......

To keep us company last night, Ryan and Mallory re-scheduled a trip to Ames and showed up with grocery bags full of dinner fixings!! After making us dinner, we all played a game of Phase 10 and then Aaron was ready for bed. (One doesn't get much sleep in the hospital, and he was wiped!).





I did work on my Noro scarf some while up in the hospital. I hope to finish it up today. I guess I am going to have to figure out how to 'block' as I think this scarf will really need it.






I spent a little time trying to read some blogs last night. A big congratulations to Kristin on the birth of her little girl, Laila Ferne!! We've all been anxiously awaiting her arrival!!




Sheri posted a picture of the front of her refrigerator and then, basically accused me of only putting pictures of her family on my refrigerator before they visit!! (Can you even imagine????) So, here is a picture of the front of my fridge (that has not been changed in several months!!). I LOVE having my fridge front covered with faces smiling at me.

What does YOUR fridge front look like??











Before Kirstin left for San Diego, she asked me to look after bear. I have been taking pictures everyday and sending them to her phone of all the fun bear is having while she's gone (at the hospital with Aaron; making dinner with Ryan and Mallory etc..). I have now put Nikko in charge of watching over bear. I know Kirstin will be thrilled to see bear AND Nikko on my blog.....








Off to check on the patient.....

Until Next Time.....

So sorry Aaron needed a 2nd surgery...poor guy, that's just awful! Sure hope this time he'll be fixed up permanently!! I'll still keep him in my prayers. Love your Noro scarf! Maybe someday I'll get to knit with Noro?

Will you come and organize my house for me?

happy knitting :)

I hope Aaron does well with this surgery. The scarf looks very nice. And I am so jealous that Sheri comes to visit you, does she bring yarn goodies? My fridge is full of pictures and "A" homework

It's a shame that Aaron needed another surgery on his back. Thankfully he's feeling better now (at least I hope he is).

Hope Steve and Kirstin have fun and that Steve gets in the required conferences...

How nice of Ryan and Mallory to reschedule their trip and come over and make dinner!

The scarf is looking great!

That scarf is looking good! Can you come clean my house when you're done? It sounds like you're doing an awesome job! Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Aaron.

Oh that poor kid! I hope everything goes smoothly for his recovery.
I'm still dealing with my back issues so he has my sympathy and then some!
