The update

Last Wednesday I went in for major surgery. It went longer than was expected, they had found a serious unexpected issue when they cut me open. They managed to take care of all the problems then began the long journey to healing. 

My first meal after 4 days. It took that long for me to gain enough mobility to be able to sit. The pain during these days were insane, my body kept flushing out the pain killers so it was a problem. During one video chat with my Honey (and a fresh pain killer high) I noticed my nose resembled an alien when I stretched my face. He said he didn't see it but I focus on it so much...Laughing was worth the pain. 
Once I gained enough mobility to be released, I came home. I seem to be healing faster compared to the hospital. It might have a lot to do with being able to sleep longer than two hours at a time. Getting in/out of bed by myself is still a future goal. I am able to sit for a few hours at a time and take very short walks around my home, both of which I'm supposed to do frequently.

My Quarantine kit from Furl's was here waiting for me. This crochet hook is the most expensive in my hook collection. The way it feels in my hand, it's also the most comfortable too. The kit included four patterns that you can make with the skein of yarn included. I've used the hook to start a shawl/ blanket/ we will decide when it's finished project.
I am using Nako Vals yarn I bought on Joann's website during their yarn sale a few weeks back($1.50/skein). I ordered a total of four skeins of red, cream, white,black, and grey. It's a 100 g skein which converted to about 262 yards. It's a light weight 3 yarn so I was thinking of a lap blanket project.
My eldest daughter's birthday is on the 5th. My Honey got her a Tres leche cake. I wasn't able to plan much for her because of my surgery, but we still did dinner. Taco Tuesday on the Cinco de I tried to stay up with them for as long as I could. She asked me to make her an Inuyasha amigurumi doll for her birthday. This is my plan for the next week or two.
