Hug your loved ones

Yes, it is doing it again.....snowing.  Later tonight it is supposed to switch over to sleet and then all rain.  I will say it again and again, I WANT SPRING!

It has been a tough couple of days for me.  My dad has lung cancer and he was doing reasonably well.  Yesterday, I got the call that they put him into the hospital.  He had been sick from the chemo, but now it is bad enough that every time that they try to get him out of the bed he is getting sick.   They are doing a brain scan today and we are now waiting to see if the cancer has spread to his brain. They think that is what is causing the severe sickness.   I think one of the hardest things is that I live over 900 miles away.  We are waiting for the results and as soon as I know, I will be heading home for a few days.   I don't think anyone is ever prepared to lose a loved one, even though you know in advance that they don't have long on this earth.

I started weaving on the shawls and they are going to be just beautiful.  I debated on if I should weave shawls.  I don't know too many people that wear them.  These were just to pretty to pass up.  Hopefully, I will have enough fabric woven tomorrow to be able to take a picture!

Have a great evening.

Knee mail going up for you and your dad and family. Hope you can travel safely to go see him. I'm sure the shawls will be lovely and will help to ease the passing time while you wait to hear the results.

Prayers for you and your dad. I think the shawls will be pretty and knit with love in every stitch. That is what the knitting ladies in my church put on every tag of their knit items.
