Hospitals Are a Great Place to Knit, Unless You're Me

Everyone always says hospitals are a great place to knit, what they don’t tell you is that you probably won’t want to. My husband was in the hospital for three days last week and I brought my knitting ( and some spinning, and embroidery) but I barely touched any of it. I can’t stress craft. I couldn’t do much more than just stare at him, just in case.

He is fine. He developed an infection that required IV antibiotics. He almost never gets sick and had a weird pain. He went quickly from Urgent Care, to the ER to being admitted. We are lucky he caught it really early.

Now I’m catching up on work, getting ready for a teaching trip, and a family vacation to the southwest. But I’m still watching him out of the corner of my eye, just in case.

Hug your people, and if you have a weird pain, go to the doctor.
