Post Surgery Post

Interesting title don't ya think?  Yesterday morning was surgery so was not up to posting anything.  Yup, I did sit and pull a few loops in hopes it would distract me from the excruciating headache and pain in the right thigh.  Normally I've had a high tolerance for pain and would never take pain meds even tho I had them 'just in case'.  I mean, at midnight and you're wracked with pain and nothing but aspirin?  OOPS, getting off track here and that is another post I could do.

Anyway...... look at this cutie Jolly snowman pattern by Maria of Star Rug Company.  I saw my friend Lauren of Rugs and Pugs hooking it last year, was jealous and had to order my own.
What is great about this is that I have not cut one piece of wool.  You can see my wool strips in a baggie and hanging around.  Not sure what color background yet but since I'm still in pain, can't concentrate it will all come together later.  Besides, Sunday I'm leaving for rug camp.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking.... why did you plan this???  Actually I didn't plan it, it just happened this way.  However, since I cannot walk Ben and he doesn't like having the back yard as his only option, it will be great for the house/Ben sitter to fulfill his needs.  Then mom can rest and not worry about the 3 - 4 miles a day she walks her boy.

Yup, I've cramped his style and he is whining now because he wants to walk around the meadow where CARS drive.  Mama can't handle that right now after just 24 hours after surgery on a thigh muscle.

So kids, he is here again and wants me to walk him so time to let him out back as I hobble to the back door.




  1. Heal fast and enjoy your rug camp respite. By the way, where are you headed?

  2. Cool that you are not cutting any wool. Lookin' good.
    You are a good puppy momma walking your boy so far every day. Can you say spoiled?
    Here's hoping the pain subsides and you heal quickly.
    Hugs :)

  3. THat is hard when you have a pup who wants to play. No one to help you out? I have people but helpful, they are not, lol. I hope the pain eases up and you are feeling better tomorrow. Love that piece and nice shades for it.


  4. Sorry your in pain. Take those paid meds tonight so you sleep. Rest is what you need.

  5. Ouch! I hope you feel better soon. Don't be brave, take the pain meds for a few days. I've always admired that rug pattern too. Maybe someday. Right now I am buried in unhooked patterns so I have to resist buying more for a bit.

  6. All I know Saundra, you're a tough woman to still plan on going to rug camp. A thigh muscle is a hard working muscle and of course it's very painful after going through that operation. I wish you all the best for a speedy recovery. I'm sure Ben is going to miss his walk with you. I hope he'll restrain himself when you return from rug hooking camp. He'll be so happy to see you again.

    Take good care of yourself.

  7. Hope your healing goes fast. In the mean time, be nice to yourself. I am not a med taker either, but sometimes ya gotta do what Ya gotta do!

  8. I hope you heal quickly and have a great time at camp.

  9. Sorry about your lump! Hope you heal before tomorrow! You're a brave girl! Have fun!!
