  • Gallstone Gone!

    Posted on April 6, 2015 by Aptenoknits in Life.

    My wife passed the gallstone yesterday and the doctor today says she doesn’t need anymore surgery! Now maybe she’ll be able to recover in peace.  I swear she’s had more symptoms from this disease (can you call giant gallstones a disease?) than anyone who’s ever had it in the history of gallstones.  At least it […]

  • Addendum

    Posted on April 1, 2015 by Aptenoknits in Life.

    In a great fit of irony my wife’s GI tract decided to develop post-op symptoms almost immediately after I posted Gallbladder Removal and Project Bernini. She’s now vomiting and has diarrhea as well as “gallstone like symptoms” like severe gas and stomach cramps.  She’s definitely going to miss Knit Nite, which is disappointing, though she’s […]

  • Gallstones and Influenza

    Posted on February 19, 2015 by Aptenoknits in Life.

      I’ve been a little quiet for the past couple of weeks but not without reason.  Let’s start with the more recent: I’ve had the flu.  It isn’t Influenza A or B, but we’re pretty sure it’s C or E, not that that means anything.  Well, it’s meant I’ve felt pretty crappy for the past […]

  • Wife Life – Adventures in Weaving

    Posted on February 4, 2015 by Aptenoknits in Life.

    For Christmas last year I got my wife a Rigid Heddle Loom, kind of.  I got her the loom for Christmas, but it didn’t arrive until last week (something about a heddle being on backorder).  Now, if you were to ask me what a rigid heddle loom actually is, I wouldn’t be able to tell […]
