Working with my hands is what makes me mentally healthy through all of this - art - gardening - cooking. Yesterday 9 weeks out from my last chemo I've discovered that ALL of my fingernails are separating. I've worn nail polish to cover the purple beds. The polish also shows how well they have started growing at the base. I'm hoping this new fast growth will hold them on.

When I get this worked out enerva you've inspired me. I now want to do something with yarn. I used to knit sweaters when my girl was little. We are having a baby boom on our street. Baby sweaters are not too big a project.

Enerva, They are adorable! I wonder if a group could get together to make a bunch and give them to children in the hospital. I know there's a quilt project Linus that makes small quilts that children take home. Every year here the police ask for donations of teddy bears to give to children when they're impacted by an event. They say it works wonders for terrified children.
