Today is a big day! John is receiving his bone marrow transplant. We are very excited for this moment, even though there will still be a lot of waiting to see what happens. I am hopeful and am so grateful for all the prayers and support we have been receiving. We have such amazing families and friends who have helped beyond ways that I could have even asked for. And then there are you guys. People who I don't even know in "real life" that have sent cards, little gifts, special projects, thoughts and prayers. You are really wonderful and I just can't thank you enough. When I started blogging I never thought that I'd become part of such a supportive community. It's really, really special.
So, while I'm waiting with John today, I'll finish up the other mitten for a Christmas gift. I think I'm probably really crazy for thinking I can still make gifts by Christmas. This mitten is the Peek-a-boo pattern on Ravelry. It's really quick and easy, and I just love it! I might have to knit some for myself. I'm sure some of you crazies (that's right, crazies) are still making gifts. Any of you have some really quick and nice gift ideas to make? Knitting or sewing would be great.
Oh, and I just wanted to pass along John's address, just in case anyone wanted to send him a letter or card. He's pretty bored, so he might enjoy the "company" ;) And as always, you can read his updates on his blog.
