Some of my Christmas Goodies...finally!

Health update 1st.
Let's thank God that I'm not in hospital because that is what the doc and his PA (who treats me often) wanted to do when Lonnie My Man took me to the doc this past Tuesday but couldn't because my doc had to go out of town and there would be no one to manage my care in hospital. I've been in such severe pain that I've not been able to even get to the doc's office, so they have had to give me more meds, etc. Well, I had my regular appt this past Tues that could not be missed and My Man had to take off work to take me via wheelchair and take my word for it boys and girls...that ain't fun. And then I ended up crying in the office bc of the intense pain. Anyway, they fiddled with my pump (internal pump that controls my pain meds) and other oral meds, gave me a shot, all hoping to keep me out of hospital when doc returns...so far, so good, I'm feeling a tad better, but am most assuredly on very restricted rest because of #1. The Pain and B. I Sleep all the time.
Please continue to pray that my recovery progresses now instead of taking the backward turn that it did after my vacation (not because of my vacation, but various other reasons).
Okay, enough with that.

I have said that I was going to show you pics of my Christmas goodies. I'm sorry to say that I still don't have pics of all of them as some are still on the camera and My Man has the cord for transferring to computer. So, I will show you what I have. 1st of all, allow me to say that I had a wonderful holiday and was gifted with many things by other friends and family other than these knitty things, but I'm just showing off the knitty gifts! I'm so blessed with family and friensd, by the way, just had to throw that in!.

My friend, Amy that I met online during a yarn swap earlier this year at Knitting Help has become a wonderful friend and as far as I'm concerned the greatest gift that I have received from her is her friendship! (Remember from an earlier post she gave me great bday gifts and surprises just for fun). Anyway, here are some of the wonderful things that she gave me for Christmas, the knitty things:

Thanks so much, Amy you are a as a friend, in so many ways!



And then there's My Love, My Honey Man, My Man...Lonnie....here are a few of the things that he gifted me on vacation for Christmas, and a couple of surprises from before our vacation...lol, and remember, pics are still on the camera....FYI, he surprised me last night with a ...what more can a girl ask for I ask you?!
Here are a few of the Christmas goodies from Lonnie:



























Thank you, My Love You are my Heart.



I continue to miss all of you, my knitty and blogging friends, please don't forget about me, I will return! One day in the near future, I hope! xoxoxoxox

EDIT EDIT
Thanks everyone for all of the well wishes that I've read in the comments area, that means so much to me.
As I've mentioned, I can't sit for long so it's taking me several days to get all of the Christmas goodies posted. Anyway, here we have the remainder of the knitty related Christmas things that I got for Christmas.....was I a lucky girl, or what?! These are some of my favorites, LOL, well, I can't say that, it would be VERY HARD to pick a fave!!
Anyway, what we have here is sock yarn. Please click on the photo for enlargement and explanations.





I can't say it enough...I sure do miss all of you and will be so happy when I can be up and around and visiting your blogs to see what's going on in your lives and with your knitting. It's hard to express exactly how much blogging with all of you is missed...must be because we knitters are such great people, right?!
Hugs to all of you!
