Quick update - most of my tests came back normal, so it's not large-bowel Crohn's (could still be small bowel, esp. since I'm not absorbing nutrients well, according to my new bloodwork). At any rate, this means I'm having surgery on Dec. 7. It's a laparoscopy to try and see what the heck is going on in mah belleh. I shouldn't have to stay overnight, unless they find some adhesions (somewhat likely) that need a fair bit of work (unlikely). It means all my finals are put off until January, and I get a week of sitting on the couch with actually no need to do ANYTHING but knit. I'm going to rip out my Silk Garden One Skein Wonder and make it into mittens, as well as making myself some glittens. I also need a warm hat, so I want to get to Michaels before Dec. 7 to buy a couple skeins of Patons SWS for a palindrome hat.

In Christmas news, I am now at the following percentages:

Lace Hat - Done

Take care of yourself...
And by the way : regarding my daugther mononucleosis from last year. We went to see an allergologist (allergy doctor ??) and he confirmed that last year's reaction was one to medication (after a doctor prescribed Dalacin) and not just a combination of medication with mono. Thus she has shown three different allergies to 3 different family of medication. We will have to make sure with a half day of hospitalization (with penicillin testing, first) than later on with the rest..
Take care of yourself again.. At least there is some good news.
