Good evening all. Thank you so much for your good wishes to the HDHBEM. She is doing well and in her own words "the lovely Indian gentleman doctor insists I stay here until he is happy" so she certainly won't be home for a while. Pneumonia is best controlled in hospital so I am happy to concur with the lovely Indian gentleman doctor :-)
Now you won't believe what happened to me today? I went to work early so I could leave early to visit the HDHBEM. But at around 8:30am the general manager came and asked me to take a colleague to the Emergency Department. I could hardly believe my ears. Hadn't I just spent a major portion of my long weekend in precisely that place? But orders are orders so off I went. At 10:30 the ED doctor sent us off to another hospital for a hand specialist to review and comment. A loooong wait and finally at 2pm we met a nurse who said the doctor would be along soon. At 3pm the doctor came and we both got back to the office at just after 4:30pm; my colleague in a cast and me barely holding on to the remnants of a good mood. No lunch, no morning tea no afternoon tea and no sense of humour left! I hereby go on record that I do not care if I never see the inside of a hospital emergency department ever again. Whatever did I do in a previous existence to deserve this???? What a day. Of course I went up to visit the HDHBEM after work and told her the story..... and you know what? She laughed!
Naturally there are no stitching photos but I have a snapshot of the small cardigan the HDHBEM knitted for baby Kelly. I hope to see her again this weekend and deliver this. Don't you love the buttons - they are a perfect match.
