My left side pain is still there, but not as bad as it was, suspecting adhesions from the surgery for that one as it feels like gas has got stuck and I've been burping a huge amount and despite the amount I'm drinking I'm having to resort to gold kiwi and prunes to keep the mail moving; this points to something interfering with peristalsis which also won't be helping my poor liver. Today I've also started taking psyllium again, which means I need to drink even more. I'm also hoping to get in to see Maree Frost who is a pelvic floor physio and can work on adhesions as surgery for them tends to be a cyclical thing and can cause more adhesions, oh joy!
I've also got back on the bike yesterday, did a 4.5km ride in between rainstorms. None today as it's cold and windy and wet, but hoping it might calm down enough for one tomorrow as exercise will also help with getting things moving and reducing inflammation etc.
Right, if you've got through all that I think you deserve a reward, so here's my current projects; starting with the one keeping us warm now the weather has finally turned.
|Not much light for this photo, but this is the singles I'll be plying next; Heavenly Wools in the Great Barrier Reef colourway on light grey Haunui base, hoping it's the final lot for my jersey|
|and my current spin, also Heavenly Wools this time the Empress of India colourway on dark grey Haunui, this will either be left as singles or Navajo plied. I'm leaning towards Navajo; it's a gradient.|
|Oh for some decent light! This blurry mess is my colourwork socks, pattern is Lucy in the Sky and you can find the project on Ravelry. The yarn is Wandering Cat Yarns Tabby Cat Fingering, which I don't think Val does anymore; loving how this is working up though. It's one of only three current WIPs.|
|And this is my current travelling sock using Regia Galaxy; not sure yet if this will be for me or for Ian. Longer leg than normal and I'm just past the gusset at the moment.|
|And my big project, this is about about 2 years old now and got put on hold because cobweb weight yarn is so fiddly! I have to get onto it again though, it'll be my "when I'm feeling better" project as it requires some concentration.|
