First, thank you so much for your moral support. You have no idea how much your kind words and thoughts (and prayers) mean to me. Even though I've never met most of you, your friendship is so appreciated.
The update. John had his ultrasound this morning and it's unconclusive. The doctor who looked at the results is 95% sure that it's not a detached retina. Yesssssss! The opthamologist still can't see much and wants to see John again after the weekend. Though no one is really sure what's going on, it seems there's some bleeding inside the eye, but no one's willing to say yet where it might be coming from, and it appears to be clearing up somewhat.
So, all in all, good news so far. I will keep you posted.
As for knitting, I'll update that tomorrow. John works; I don't, so I'll have time to myself for taking pictures and writing. I intend to have the shawlette pattern written up tomorrow. There is only one thing holding me back from posting it. The camel yarn has no posted yardage. I'm working up another shawlette with a yarn that does have the yardage on the tag to figure out the approximate yardage used. Other than that, and the chart for the edging, the pattern is pretty much written already. I take it there's interest?
Now, I really should call my sister (one of the two sisters in Abbotsford) and wish her happy 50th birthday. It's my turn to rub it in a little. Big sisters are allowed to do that, right?
