not quite there.....

I had inner-ear reconstructive surgery last wednesday, and got home 2 days ago, Thursday, let me tell you, knitting on pain-killers is an other worldy experience, it kind of takes on a knitting meets fantasia feel, but instead of pink elephants I have dancing yarn.

I can highly recommend it if you're looking for the 'wow, I never knew yarn could do that' experience!

Sounds like a very interesting trip (trip being the operative word) on the road to recovery.

Hope you heal well and are steadily back on your feet in no time.

Hmmmm...dancing yarn.

Well I hope you're doing

Well I hope you're doing better, and hmmmmm my yarn does some pretty neat tricks on it's own, like getting HUGE knots INSIDE the ball O.o or how about buying 4 skeins, and when you go to get them there are only 3 (I believe this to be possible cannibalism) knitting itself when I'm supposed to be doing a purl row. I'm not sure I need it dancing joyously while it's doing these other things :p
Take care of you

I take Lyrica for

I take Lyrica for post-herpetic neuralgia that sometimes gives me the feeling of euphoria so I can relate.

Hope your healing is coming along well.

Those must be some pain

Those must be some pain killers they have you on. When I had surgery to remove a lump from my jaw 2 years ago I was knitting in the hospital after surgery. The next morning my surgeon came in to see me. I was sitting up in bed working on a sock. He said that I must be feeling well enough to go home. That week of recovery was lots of knitting, tea and naps.

Good luck on your recovery and hope you are doing well.
