Not Pneumonia

You guys are so sweet to Papa. He’s feeling all proud about your response to the rattle. He really has a talent for the turning wood. Me, I would do some serious damage with the lathe. So my little guy has been sick all week. Yesterday the doctor and I both thought he might have pneumonia but it turns out that it’s just a really bad case of bronchitis. I really hate when the doctor says they have a really bad case of… Still, this year is nothing like the horror of last winter as far as illnesses go so I’m thankful.

Simultaneous Knitting and Un-Knitting

I’ve been spending a lot of time on the sofa with my patient because he must be touching me at every moment which is working out well for the handwork. I’m finally almost done with Amanda Jean‘s sock — it’s actually a lot further than that photo shows, and I bound half of a quilt that I finished back in May or June. Of course I need to run out to get some more fabric for binding the rest– I swear I cut enough but I cannot find it for the life of me — and Mr. Hacking-Up-A-Lung isn’t quite ready to return to public life. I’ve got another quilt to bind and some buttons to sew on a valentine dress. Plenty to keep me busy while this one recuperates:

    I’m SO glad it’s not pneumonia. My son had pneumonia when he was little and it literally took months to get him back to normal.
    Enjoy your projects!

    i hope he feels better soon. isn’t it nice to have handwork to do while they are sick, though? to me, it’s a life saver. i love this photo of your little guy. and i love the quilt he’s snuggled under.

    oh, that photo is precious. I’m just learning how to knit, so that project photo seems incredibly far along to me!

    So happy to hear he’s on the mend. I know all about Bronchitis and even had one child who DID have Pneumonia–it’s amazing how quick it cleared up once the antibiotics got started, like overnight almost!
    Precious photo.
