This is a quick picture of the dishcloth I designed yesterday. I am calling it "Diamonds and Dew Drops"
This is not what I was setting out to design but it's what came out of my head as I knitted. So what do you think?
Ok back to my sons art project. The way his mind works is amazing sometimes. These kite like looking boxes are supposed to represent the human body. The sacks in the middle are weights, as in if the person was overweight and in need of a Gastric Bypass Surgery (I apparently was his inspiration... sad but true)
Anyway the demonstration of the art project was to sort of show a patient DR relationship. The patient (the overweight person) in order to qualify for the surgery has to lose 10% of their body weight, hence the weights in the middle of the model.
The person in need of the surgery is the person lifting the weights up, as they are the one who has to do all the work to prepare for the surgery. Once the weights are lifted the person lifting them can no longer see what's happening because their view is blocked. This is where the DR's part takes place.
A second person reaches into the bottom of the model to look at information pertaining to the surgery and all the hoops you must hop through to have it scheduled. The overweight person still has to hold the weights up while the second person looks at the materials. One box had paper materials and the other had a video on Gastric Bypass Surgery playing that the person could watch.
It was a trust relationship on both sides. The DR trusted the patient to keep their end of the bargain and keep the weight off prior to surgery, and the patient trusted the DR to know what he was doing during the surgery since they could not see what was being done.
I probably didn't explain that exactly right, but hopefully you get the drift of his idea. It went off without a hitch and was well received by both the other students and the professor.
Spider update, no more have been spotted, and I am spider bite free. Yay. Can't say that I haven't been keeping my eyes open looking just in case though.
I had a great visit today from my "other daughter" Jen, it was a surprise I was not expecting her. She stopped by yesterday but I missed her, and was sad. We sat in my messy kitchen and talked for a couple hours and she never said a word about it. She will head home for Louisiana this weekend. It's been years since I have seen her so this was a GREAT day.
Lastly in case she happens to read my blog today...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARCIA (my MIL in case you are wondering)
OK that's about it for me tonight, see you all tomorrow after swimming and church.
