Here We Go Again

DH has been having chest pains again, especially after exercising, so he saw the cardiologist today. He needs another stent (in an artery that's only 80% so they didn't fix it when he was in the hospital to fix an artery at 99%), and that's scheduled for Friday (day after tomorrow). Youch.

(Laura, that's the sort of turnaround time I really, really, really wish you could get! It would make your life so much less stressful to get the procedure over with.)

At least, this time it isn't an ER situation, so DH will be more relaxed and not in pain. The cardiologist did a good job the first time round, so DH is confident this procedure will go as smoothly and quickly as the last. Anyway, he has to stay overnight at the hospital, and I'll pick him up on Saturday whenever they deign to release him. (Somehow, that's always the hardest part of hospitalization - getting the heck out of there!)

While all of this happened, I managed to wind weft skeins onto cones for the table runner warp. In the photo below, on the left are the cones of warp and one painted chain - which are intended for repair purposes. I'm sure there are at least one or two knots in the painted chains on the loom, which is why I made a spare, identical painted chain. On the right are the cones of weft yarn. I'll probably use the solid red rayon (second from left) for one runner, and fuchsia, purple, and dark blue for the rest.



Sometimes I'm very grateful for looms and thread to take my mind off the more urgent cares of the day...

Goodness, that has happened so quickly that I am just reading about it now and it should be done already! Hope it went smoothly (and everyone has their laptop!)

Cally will be happy to know that the overnight bag packed for the excursion in hospital-land included the smartphone and tablet. He was very happy to have them available without my making a separate trip to fetch them (and I was too)!
