Can you spell NO Patience!!!

Yes!! I admit it...all those instructions that I used to give my surgical patients about taking it easy and giving your body a chance to heal... it was for them, not me!!! I am different. I should have been back in top gear by the 2nd day after I arrived home. This being nice to me, and taking it easy so my body can do its work is not my style. Do understand if it was my DH who had had the operation, I would have had his butt planted on the sofa and he would not be allowed to over-exert in any way...but this is me we are talking about. (Harfrumph!!!)

OK now that that is out of my system. I have thus far finished one infant sock, my sock #1 of the lace sock pattern that I now love. Tonight I have decided I will start working on my WIP - a lovely (although very plain) knitted sleeveless shell. The yarn is scrumptious, and I really need to finish it so I can a) wear it, and b) start another project (other than my sock #2).

To any and all who might wonder, do your best to keep your gall bladder happy and contented. For when it is not happy it is down-right cantankerous, mean and nasty. So keep to fat to moderation and when it decides to harass you fight back and have it removed. And that my friends comes from an old nurse who hates the thought of being in surgery no matter what the reason. But just this once I was more than happy at the thought of having that little piece of excess baggage removed.

Will try to figure out how to post some pics soon (I hope)

Please take care of yourself, your body needs the rest after surgery, but I'm sure you know that already now don't you ;)

Can't wait to see pictures!
