Feeling nearly normal

Last night is not something I want to ever relive. Kim kept trying to get me to go to the ER, but I was too stubborn. My left ear plugged up and I was up most of the night in horrendous pain. I finally managed to get about 3 hours sleep with two Darvocets and a slug of cough medicine with codeine in it. After a couple of naps today, I feel pretty good, though the ear is till plugged. I may have ruptured my ear drum though. It has been draining and a lot of that is blood. I may try to get into the doctor monday. Meanwhile I have been taking some antibiotic I have.

I finally got blogger to upload my pictures. This is Mom's christmas pressie from me. My first attempt at lace knitting. It is called Branching out and I made it of a yummy soft alpaca/silk blend. The color is a soft dove gray. This thing took me over a month to do. A few times I considered giving up, but I couldn't let it beat me.

Matt is coming down tomorrow and Kim will grill steaks for our holiday meal. I am hoping that I feel even stronger tomorrow so I can cook up some goodies. Mom went to my sisters' for the weekend. She stopped by here this morning to get my cell phone for the trip. No telling who all she will get calls from while she has it.
Merry Christmas to my family and friends. I hope it is a pleasant one for all.
