Mom's Birthday

Wednesday evening, the eve of Mom's birthday, brother Dave and I had a mini party for her. Dave brought all kinds of yummy Indian food and a fantastic carrot cake that we were all too full eat.

Her birthday socks are a perfect fit and just the color she requested, the blue of a summer sky.

This is the Sunshine pattern from Sock Innovation by Cookie A. knit in Opal UNI-Solid 27 with 2.5mm Options circulars.

Early the next morning, the morning of Mom's 87th birthday (June 18th), we were back in the hospital for a seriously needed heart cath and four stents. The most welcome birthday present she ever could receive.

Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers this past week. Mom is home this evening and very tired (it appears they don't allow sleeping in the hospital) but looking good and doing well.
