Last year at this time

Last year at this time I received a call at work from an ICU nurse at Allegany Hospital in PA that my 21 year old daughter had one brain aneurism bust and another one on the verge of busting. Well we live in OH and my daughter was in PA attending college and we immediately left and drove to the hospital as quickly as the law aloud us to. When we arrived they were rushing her into brain surgery.....she was in the ICU for 3 weeks and we lived out of the hospital and a hotel room. If it wasn't for my crocheting I don't know how I would have survived the time in between visit, as it was we could only go back for just an hour 3 times a was that time between visits that was the killer. I made 6 afghans in that time and 2 of them were granny squares that you piece together. It honestly relaxed and comforted me in that very troubling time. Happy end to the story, my daughter survived graduated college 3 weeks after brain surgery! And is now going on with her like very normal with no side effects.
