Dad is still in hospital and probably will be for the rest of his life, however long that may be. Perhaps his kidneys will fail; perhaps the cancer will take him.
Three days ago he was completely "not there" - the old, frail shell that housed my father was there but his mind was gone. The following day he improved but was still slurring and having trouble making grammatical sentences. Yesterday he was cheeky and bright. I haven't seen him yet today but mum said he visibly deteriorated in front of her for the couple of hours she was there.
In the past four days I have knitted an entire baby blanket for my niece (due late March) because my mother couldn’t face the relatively simple pattern she had chosen. She is stressed beyond thinking (as you can imagine). WM and I are heading home on Tuesday - after three weeks away from home and living with the uncertainty it's time for us to get back to some semblance of normalcy. I have a baby shower to organise - DD is due in just 7 1/2 weeks so I can’t leave it too much longer! I will show you photos of all of my knitting from November to now when I return home - WM could take photos but he doesn't have the software to download them!
I have started another project but I don't think I like the colour so have stopped to reassess the situation. This is annoying because I bought this yarn (over the internet) especially for this project and now I regret my colour decision. I need to think on this some more.
For those who believe, please keep praying that God's will be done in this situation. Thank you.
