Radio Silence

It is when I am too sick or injured to weave that I realize all over again that weaving isn't just what I do, it's the way I am.  It's what I am.  A thread bender.  Creative.  A do-er.  What is so nasty about this particular episode is that I haven't even been able to sit to do other craft work (hemming, bobbin lace), read, or even write.  So all my avenues of creativity have pretty much been impossible.  

I even, (gasp!) resorted to daytime tv, which I haven't done since, well, since recovering from the broken ankle.

All that said,  I am beginning to notice tiny (teeny, tiny) signs of improvement.  I can actually sit for short (very short) periods of time - enough that I've managed to hem a few towels, half a hem at a time.  I can now lie down on the bed (for a short time) to read.  

On Wednesday I'll find out the results of the x-ray and hopefully the doctor will have a treatment plan.  

In the meantime, it's been pretty much radio silence on the internet, partly because I haven't been able to sit at the computer, partly because I simply haven't been doing anything!

Very grateful for all who have been in touch sending their best wishes.  I'm really hoping it won't take too much longer before I'm back in weaving form.

You have to be going slightly crazy. Not being able to anything is pretty mind and soul numbing. I hope you get good news on Wed.

I really am sorry you are having so much trouble. Praying for you to have a full recovery.

Is this still from the reaction to the statins? That's awful! I sure hope your body rights itself soon, so you can start weaving again.

I'm only just starting to weave; on my second ever project and I can already see that it'll be a big part of my life (alongside knitting and spinning); I can't imagine not being able to craft, it keeps me sane.
Hope things do improve soon and that they work out what the problem is and how to prevent it from coming back!

Having just gotten over radiation therapy last week, I feel your pain. Daytime TV.... ugh!
