On Thursday I was finally able to go home after two weeks in hospital. Never thought it was something serouisly wrong going on, even if I've been feeling sick and super tired for a few weeks. I just thought it was just a bug going on... Turned out to be an autoimmune illness, and the immune system was starting to attack my liver. I went to the ER when my eyes and skin turned yellow, and glad I did!
The doctors used some time to narrow it down and figure out what was wrong, and I could start treatment that made it slow down and I started feeling a little bit better.
I know it can take a lot of time to be back to normal, but will continue to take blood tests till they show normal values. Might take weeks, months or maybe longer... But at least I know what's been going on.
I'm still having fever come and go, and get super exhausted for no reason.
I have been thinking a lot about the plans I made for Christmas. Presents, baking, decorating, visiting family and friends.... I just realize I really need to narrow the list down to less than planned.
I have several unfinished presents in the making, but I guess if I can't finish them this year, I can finish them and have some beautiful homemade presents for next Christmas, right?
I've had a few experiences with "life happenings", so I guess I should have learned by now that there's a few things you can't control. But I also feel like I'v had my share of stuff going on for a while. I try to focus on the positive, but admit it is hard sometimes.
I'm glad my boys are helping me with stuff for Christmas, and we look forward to the Holidays.
I really missed my sewing room while I was away, and I really need some quilty therapy and Vitamin Q now. I have only been knitting a little bit when I've felt better, and that's ok too. I hope to be able to do a little bit of sewing soon, and maybe plan a couple of new projecst too.
I am behind on the FQFW1930's QAL and my Farm Girl Vintage quilt, but It's ment to be fun so I don't worry about it. I look forward to make new blocks, and in the meantime I enjoy watching the progress on the blocks the other ladies are making.
Wish you all a great and creative Sunday!
