Medical ups and downs

When we returned from our road trip the dog wasn't well.  A quick trip to the vet and $200 determined ear infection, dry eyes with treatable inflammation, and worsening seasonal allergies.  Oodles of pollen here.  So with steroids for his ears, drops for his eyes, and citerizne and benedryl for his allergies he is on the mend.  

Sadly, on the road we received news that dh dad wasn't feeling well.  Testing reviled liver cancer.  Over the course of two weeks it progressed from Not curable but treatable with chemo. To spreading no chemo advised 4 -8 months, to rapid now it's more like 4-8 weeks and he will move from independent living to assisted living/hospice care.   All in the course of 15 days.   Dh is there, I am not.  We talked about it, and he said not to come.  Sibs that weren't planning on arriving until June or July have been convince to come next week so decision can be made.

More time in the car.

 Drive to Connecticut and back for dd1 graduation.  She received her PhD.

Thank heavens for knitting.  3 baby hats.  2 1/2 socks...different pairs.  Started a shawl.  And a few levels of candy crush.   

Got in some bad golf with good friends in Pennsylvania.  
 Horrid weather.  

Now back in MN 
 At the lake.  With all the road trips we are way no docks or boats .
And finally we will get a new vet in this area.  Jack has a rip roaring ear infection. So time to move his care up here.

Spent a lot of time in a car

YWe drove from Florida to Minnesota.  From Andover to ideal corners.  From ideal to Mankato and back again.  So I've had a lot of sitting and knitting time. 

Finished except for blocking. 

Needs a toe and heel

Needs a sleeve.

That would be dd2. She completed her masters degree hooding ceremony. 


I'm definitely not in Florida anymore.  There aren't even any visible buds on the trees.  Dh played golf this was 40.
