M has had about a dozen side effects since his first infusion August 31st. The worse was diarrhea which the team finally prescribed prednisone for. He missed about 7 days or half days of work. He had a few side effects which puzzled everyone (puffy lips for instance) which he had to have a steriod lip ointment to resolve (that took almost 4 days!).
So it's been a roller coaster here. He had lab work and dr's appointment the day before his next infusion but they postponed the infusion due to the prednisone. His next appointment is next week - 6 weeks after the first infusion tho they are supposed to be 3 weeks apart at this stage. We'll see what happens next.
I finished a number of things all of handspun (so nice to reach into the stash and find what I want to play with!)
This is a crocheted Gotland/Shetland/alpaca granny square afghan I am going to send to a friend.
For me - a knitted alpaca/Shetland/silk sweater. I wondered how it would be to run the triangles from cuff to neck and that was my goal. I wore it out and about today - it's light and comfortable and I am very happy with it.
I neglected to have M photograph the sleeves to show the triangles working up them to the neck.
Mary sent me Robert Macfarlane's new book - Landmarks. It is soooo good. I would quote my favorite paragraphs but I am afraid there would be no stopping. I was amused to see both the words "consider" and "cadair" in the glossaries. Love it. Thank you, Mary, you know what this means...
Looks like I can keep the free version of typepad so I will be able to do updates here as time goes on. This ought to be reminder to put a list of my favorite blogs on my laptop so I can link to them. I still use my desktop for most things and just use the laptop for on-line but that means right now, no links. Or rather... too lazy to search them out.
Back to plying a wonderful white Shetland from RiverBend Farm. This is where the e-spinner is a joy.
Hope all is well out there...
