At Both Ends

On Brandy watch – another couple of sightings by neighbors, and dry food that I’m leaving out seems to be getting eaten – all very good.  She is right here, and I’m going to try to get a trap for her.

On Mom watch – I wasn’t happy with how my Mom looked this week – getting weaker, and in a lot of pain.  So I bundled her up and took her to the ER (because the ortho practice wouldn’t get her in), and feeling perhaps a bit wasteful of our medical $$.  As it turns out, it was a good thing – her doc took blood work (which I kinda wondered at), and found that she was low in sodium – an important electrolyte, especially if you have heart issues, which she does.  It explains a lot, fortunately. She got admitted, and I’ll be heading over soon – we’re trying to figure out how this happened.

At least there was time for some knitting at the hospital. A gal on Ravelry a while back said that she had some Lorna’s Laces sock yarn that she didn’t like and would give way, so I immediately said, “Me, Me!”  I’m using one of the patterns from Sensational Socks a mosaic pattern called Caesar’s Check (rav link) – and I think they are looking very cute:
