Aloe Driftwood :: WIP

I am just loving knitting top-down and in the round.  Check out these sleeves - so clever

Yes, I am still around!

My menfolk have fallen sick one after the other, over and over again these last 5 weeks.  Liam has become so bad that when it was time for the long-awaited ENT appointment he was sufficiently infected, swollen and pus-oozy that the ENT surgeon declared "grommets! tonsils out! adenoids out!".

Surgery has been booked for 6 week's time, right on my birthday.  So I have a hot date with my gorgeous little 4 year old, in overnight accommodation with lashings of ice cream.  And you know, with the lack of sleep I have had lately, it sounds delightful.  But seriously, I am thrilled about the surgery.  You see, Liam has sleep apnoea which finally a medical professional has admitted could be causing his seizures (I knew it was something to do with his ears, nose and throat issues!!!).  There are no promises but I can't help thinking that it will relieve the situation.

Sleep apnoea in little children can cause learning difficulties and behavioural issues.  His deafness caused by glue ear is causing poor speech development.  His tonsils and adenoids are causing the sleep apnoea and excessive dribbling.  And. so. on.  I am scared to pieces about a surgeon cutting into my little boy but I am praying praying praying!

Right now I wish I could have my tonsils removed.  I have shared my bed for the past few weeks with sick little boys, breathing their germs and being drooled on so it was only a matter of time and sleep deprivation before I succumbed!

This is supposed to be a craft blog too.  So enough talk of sickness.  This is what I have been up to in between playing nurse-maid.  With the weather getting warmer, I fear it won't be worn this season.  Nevermind.  I'll give you all the details when I finish.

Do you have something on the needles that won't make it before spring?



  1. Oh Fi, you darling girl. I really feel for you and your little man. I had to go through 4 ENT operations with Joshua and India in their first few years. Joshie's adenoids kept growing back so they were operated on 3 times. I had no idea that could happen. Anyway, thankfully all that is long behind us. Whilst it's distressing at the time, it will be so worth it. Hang in there and trust the experts, my friend. J x

  2. Sorry to hear you've all been sick! No fun!
    Surgery is scary but think of all the benefits for your little boy, sounds like he really needs it.
    Your knitting looks amazing! Reminds me of some crocheting that I fear won't be finished before warm weather, either!
    Take care, get some sleep. xxx

  3. First, payday cash advances are incredibly quick and simple to get payday loans come up using a superior
    decision after assessing the entire factor which may influence the house loan rate.
