Not every day is golden

The last few days have been less than pleasant as life has been handing out the anti-candy lately.

Kathy's aunt was taken to the hospital monday in grave condition. We learned of it mon night and Kathy was on a plane to KC tues morning. With her parents still driving across country from Las Vegas, Kathy was the first family member to arrive, and so had her hands full finding out what had happened and what would happen next. Because we had just had little Zeke neutered, I couldn't board the dogs and go to KC as well.
Yesterday they took her aunt to surgery, and a little while later Rochester called.
Seems they needed someone with a little more international and corporate exp than Kathy has. This still leaves both Denver and Erlanger to hear from.

Aunt came thru surgery ok... not great but ok.... I gave up trying to find the right yarn here at the house and ran out last evening to get yarn for a prayer shawl for her.
I only have about 7 inches, relaxed, knit on it so far, but am making it a bit wider than pattern calls for with 75 stitches instead of the called for 57. It will slow down the finishing a little, but I should have it done in a few days.

Will post pics in a few minutes.
