Bed rest=crafty time

Since I have been on bedrest for the last several days I have found myself bored out of my mind. I decided to dig through my craft bins and pull out some old and forgotten craft projects. One of which I use to love to make. Baby socks crochet with buttons and beads. They are so fun and festive for any little girl. I guess I use to make them for my niece many years ago, but once I got wrapped up in scrapbooking I never went back to them again. Well I really forgot how much fun and easy they are to make. I have made 8 pair of socks since Tuesday. I think that is a pretty good accomplishment, since I have not crochet in 4 years. I actually only know how to do a chain stitch, but that is all you need to know to make these socks. Here are a few photos of what I have made.
I did get a call from my dr. yesterday afternoon telling me that my strep test came back positive. I had 3 cultures done because I kept telling all the dr.'s that I had strep but they would not listen. the rapid test came back negative so they didn't culture it. Well finally my family dr. listened to me. So I am happy to report that I now have antiobiotics and should be feeling better soon. I do still have the spinal headache but I can tell every day that it is continuing to get better. I did sleep in today till noon and rest always helps a sick body. It was the first night since last week that I almost slept through the night, I did wake up 2x to go to the bathroom but that is ok, the fact that I found a comfortable position to sleep in was good enough for me! Also I have managed to get on the computer today and start uploading my vacation photos, that is a good sign that I am tolerating staying in one position longer than 30 minutes at a time. I do know that I can't push it or I will be back at square one. So for now I will take long rests in between my moments of normalcy! Or what seems like normalcy.
