And so the predicted blizzard begins. First it rained, then it froze, and then it began snowing over the frozen rain. The weather man on the news said (and I quote): "If you absolutely don't have to go out on these roads, DON'T GO!" And then Blaine, in his numbskull brilliancy, decided to drive to the grocery store......
I will be nervous until he returns. (Especially since he's driving MY truck....)
There's a picture down below of my progress on the Little Red Riding Hoodie. I'm on the body now. So many cables to do but they're relatively easy ones. They look more complicated than they are.
But it helps me to knit because I'm very worried about a medical thing. If you've been reading my Twitter you'd know that I went in for some routine labwork at the medical doctor and no sooner had I gotten home than they were calling me urgently to tell me that the scheduler would soon be calling to tell me when to come in to discuss with the doctor some "abnormality" in my labs.
And I know exactly what it is....
I had been seeing a previous doctor but I fired the asshole for being rude to me. But I fired him right after he had just found the same thing---that I had some abnormal labs. It seems that my liver labs have suddenly gone sky high when they have never done that before in my entire life--- even in my heavy drinking days. So for my liver enzymes to go astronomical when I'm sober is.....well... scary to say the least. And he did a test to see if it was any of the hepatitises but I was negative on all of them. So then he said that he thought it was one of my psych meds which has a reputation for causing liver trouble in some people. So now I'm worried about that ---in fact I'm more than worried. I'm very terrified and frightened that it will turn out to be the fault of that particular med. So frightened and terrified that I'm not sleeping or eating---and I'm drinking too much coffee. And the reason I'm so terrified is that I really need that particular med. And I'm nervous that they'll take me off of it. I mean, I think that some of my various meds are no big deal--- but this one....this one I need.
Anyhoo, I'm knitting a lot to calm down and not fret so much about the issue until I talk to the doctor. And I'm mainly knitting a lot on the Little Red Riding Hoodie below.
