Still Not Knitting

It’s been three weeks since my mother broke her hip and things had just started to settle down so that I felt able to knit again. I’m about half way done with a lace scarf. But the fates have other plans. Monday my 89-year-old father was taking his daily 20-mile bike ride when a woman passed him on the right and caused him to lose his balance and fall. He’s now in the hospital indefinitely with 7 broken ribs and a punctured lung. Obviously, I’m having trouble knitting again. Between visiting my dad in the hospital and my mom in the rehab nursing home, I wonder if I should change careers and become a health-care provider
