Thank you for all the lovely comments for Mia, she came through the operation swimmingly and can now hear like anyone else. You don’t realise just how loud being unable to hear makes a person, her speech sound-level has dropped remarkably since yesterday morning and she doesn’t seem to shout anymore. She’s really thrilled to be able to hear properly, once she got over the initial shock at the hospital that was the first thing she said “Mum, I can hear you” .
It has knocked her a bit, so the last 36 hours have been very quiet, with lots of lounging around on chairs while watching a fair amount of television and eating lots of “special” food (reads – a whole bag of lollies is not normally permitted). I keep getting distracted by a bit of a tidy up that seems to be going on with me at the moment, and I keep finding myself absorbed into a re-organising task. Add to that I found this piece of fabric at the op-shop the other day that I personally think is divine, possibly because it’s so hideous, and was itching to get stuck into.
I made some cushions for the couch, fairly easy and doesn’t really take me away from Mia, and loads of fun just choosing fabrics. My stash is getting way too big, and it was fun to just rummage through and think “I’ll have that”. I’m really happy with the outcome, it’s an odd bunch of patterns and colours but I think it works, I like it. Every aspect of them except for the thread is recycled, so I’m pretty pleased with that too.
