A little Friday evening post. First of all, thank you for your well wishes for Yazziebear. She's home with us now with the best possible diagnosis. She has extreme hyperthyroidism, which could have caused her problems, or at least augmented a bacterial or viral infection. She went to a specialist for a sonogram who said she doesn't appear to have cancer. Now it's just a matter of treating her with pills or, should the pills be burdensome, having her treated with radioisotope iodine (same thing they do for humans), after which she becomes briefly radioactive. Yazziebear: "I always knew I was hot!"
We took her to the specialist yesterday and there was a lot of waiting, so I got a lot done on Christinia.
The puckery-looking eyelet stitch is slow going, but a blast to do. They look like little silk-lined bullet holes. Or puckered lips.
It has rained for a solid week here, but it's supposed to be nice tomorrow and Sunday. I have some more planting to do; here's a raspberry bush that I bought. No doubt the birds will eat the berries before we do, but it's fun to think about maybe making raspberry jam from our own bushes.
Here's Pink with a little kiss for you. "Pucker up!"
I'm off to tidy up a few things and then settle onto the bed with a most grateful to be home Yazziebear and my stitching. Happy weekend, all!
