Yesterday my dad was transferred out of ICU (22 days!) into a regular room in the hospital, we are overjoyed! Of course he has a ways to go in his recovery and we hope within a week he will be discharged to a rehab place that is closer to his home which will help out my step mom's commute to the city. Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers.
Today is a rainy day and while I'm not a fan of overcast days, I do enjoy the forced stillness wet weather gives me. Instead of walking I will be catching up on household tasks.
You know I will be knitting! I am enjoying my sweater currently on my needles.
I'm going to catch up on some reading and journaling as well. Art journaling specifically. I haven't been creating art for over three weeks and I'm feeling the urge to once again get my supplies out and sketch.
I forgot to share with you the cross stitch picture I finished a while ago. I'm very pleased with how it turned out but I will be shying away from cross stitching on linen for the foreseeable future. Give me Aida cloth please!
I am so relieved your dad has graduated from ICU! That is a monumental achievement! I hope he continues his amazing recovery!ReplyDelete
Happy weekend to you!
That is wonderful news! I'm sending prayers for your dad that he continues to improve and is soon discharged to the rehab facility.ReplyDelete
