I hope you all had a wonderful mother’s day (and thank you for all the well wishes for my Mama!). My brother and fam popped in to see her and had a wonderful day.
Unfortunately, things weren’t so grand for Dave and I, or his family. I can’t remember if I’ve told you, but his grandma had been in the hospital for the past couple of weeks. On Wednesday, we got the news that she wouldn’t be coming back home. Unfortunately, she would be moving to a hospice, the hospital was just waiting on an opening.
Friday, things took a turn for the worst. She stopped eating and drinking, and now it’s just a matter of days. The hospital is doing everything they can to keep her comfortable and pain-free, but there is nothing anyone can do but be with her and wait.
It’s almost a three hour drive for us, but both Saturday and Sunday, we made the trip to spend as much time by her bedside that we could. Dave played music for her and talked, while I sat by with my knitting.
This sock was actually finished before we went. While there I knit 3/4 of the second sock, but I haven’t taken a picture yet, so this one is all you get. It was helpful to have some cheerful colours to work with in such a gloomy situation.
Hug your loved ones tight, and stitch every stitch while you can.
