New Pattern

Anyone who really KNOWS me, Knows I love Dragons! Saw this on Facebook and had to have the pattern! Also, got an adoreable frog that has possibilities as my new header picture. Just need to make it and find or make the tutu and ballet slippers. I've been thinking 'Build a Bear' might be a good place to get these already made.

I have some fabulous roving that in purples and tourqoise and fushia that might look really good as this dragon? If you look at the links you'll see She is very LARGE. 25in long....I'm in love

And on a family note: This is Jerico's 1 yr Sobriety Celebration! We are very proud!

Definition: The inner ear has fluid-filled tubes called semicircular canals, or labyrinths. The canals, along with a nerve in your skull, help interpret your body's position and maintain your balance.

I had a virus just after Thanksgiving. The usual thing with stomach etc. But, it had some dizziness associated with it too but it went away quickly. Ever since I've felt off. Not dizzy but, well, off.

Wed. woke up with vertigo.. not spinning..just kinda drifting feeling. OMG I'm having a stroke I thought.. but it went away. Thurs. woke up..MUCH worse. Emergency room FAST!! 6 Hours later and a CT scan and MRI (OMG never wanna do that again!!) they decided I had Labyrinthitis. Oh ya, AND I have a brain and all in all it looks pretty good. WHO KNEW!?
Now Friday and I'm navigating ok. Haven't had to take the pills they gave me.. basic Dramamine type. Still off but not drifting away today. No quick movement recommended tho.. YOW. Scary. But, at least not a stroke! End of Old lady whine and snivel
