It is lucky that the problem was discovered before it started to cause any major problems.
I am also so thankful for the amazing doctors that I have & the nursing staff that will take care of me as a recover. I know I will be in very good hands.
I'm also lucky to have a nice stash & projects planned for my recovery time!! I was going to try to wind some of the skeins tonight, but eh, i'll get someone else to do it later. I don't think I'll feel like knitting for a few days (gasp!!).
I'm grateful for all the support I have received; it has really helped me get through this.
