Close Knit is sold. Our time on her is now a memory. We are doing OK here in Kingston, the nice weather is helping to lift our spirits. Al continues to struggle with low grade urinary tract infections. This is likely to continue until his July surgery. The doctors are opting to only treat him with antibiotics if he becomes more symptomatic that includes fever and blood in his urine. We had a day in Emergency last week because of severe right leg and groin pain and an inability to stand or walk. Ct scan and leg ultrasound did not turn up a source so pain control with morphine is the short term treatment. It seems to be resolving and may well have been a pulled inguinal muscle from Al’s struggle to walk. I have resurrected my pre-stroke bike and plan to do some riding this year. Between knitting and getting a bit more physical with cycling I am managing to stay sane, barely some days. Life Line is being installed on Monday. This will allow me short stints way from Al while knowing help is nearby if needed. I will contemplate over the next while about whether to fold this blog. If I do I will continue another site that will focus more on Knitting as survival and to keep friends and family current with our situation. Stay Tuned.
