Taking Some Time Off But Not For Fun

We've been AWOL for a few days, and will need a few days more before we're back to full operations here at Spring Water Designs. My dad took a fall on Friday and broke his hip, and had surgery for a partial hip replacement on Sunday. Because he suffers from dementia (and now in the hospital ~ out of his regular element it's a lot worse) I have to be there to make sure he's doing ok, getting the right treatment, and sign papers for him. I'm the only relative he has here in Maryland.

So of course I'm getting little sewing done, and I haven't had much computer time, but I have made the best of hospital-room time by knitting ~ I knew there was a reason I learned how to do that this year :) Dad will be entering a rehab facility this week, and it remains to be seen if he can go back to independent living after rehab, so I have a lot of arrangements to be looking into in the near future. We are keeping up with sales here, and I will be focusing on customer orders, but bear with me, I anticipate my blog posts will be spiratic for a little bit, until I get things settled (and have something of interest to blog about) ~ but I will return!

Enjoy the day!
~ Dawn
