Well, it's over. I have lots of observances but have taken some pain medication and probably wouldn't be coherent. For now, I'll just say that everything went well and I am home. For some reason I'm surprised at the pain. Traditional pain meds make me sick so I am taking tylenol with codeine. It works ok.


Here is the "too distracted to concentrate on the day before surgery sock" I worked on yesterday. It's Sockotta (cotton, wool and nylon) and had enough pattern to keep me amused. I really like it and at 9 dollars a ball, a bargain as far as sock yarns go. I have given it a short row heel, my first without a pattern. It even looks pretty decent. This will be good for me for the next few days until I don't need the pain meds.
Thanks so much for all the good wishes. I appreciated all the good wishes. Now, I think I will go back to sleep. I'm not sure I have a choice.

So glad to hear that you are home and that all went well. Keep taking your meds and rest, rest, rest! Socotta is very good for that. Pretty pattern and mindless knitting. That's my prescription for you!

I thought of you often today and am glad that all went well. I didn't know sock therapy was good for pain but whatever works :-)

I'm so glad you are home and recovering. I hope the sock knitting and the T-w/C. are getting you back where you need to be.

You spinning wheel looks lovely. I can't wait to see the fruits of your spinning.

Rest up, rest well, recover.

Blessings, dear one. And if the pain concerns you, it wouldn't hurt to call the doctor's office and ask if that much pain is normal. Sometimes, pain is a symptom that something is wrong.
