I truly am blessed with some lovely friends, some of whom I have never even met. I havce spent the last 2 weeks in a mixture of screaming agony upstairs on my bed with emergency doctors coming and going, to being stuck on the floor for just over 4 hours with no help from NHS direct or my own GP, to then being admitted by ambulance last monday. I have had a lumbar injection, I am high on morphine with a liquid morphine to add in there every hour to keep me topped up, then there are a whole array or beautiful coloured tablets all of which have to be taken aswell.
Thursday my OH came to visit me in the hospital and brought me 2 cards, one from a friend locally and the other from the lovely Oooooona (sorry no picture as it is still packed in my hospital bag!!)
Then I recieved a picture message from him friday morning which showed another 5 cards, which I asked him to leave at home for me in the hope I could climc down the stairs with physio and also back up then I was allowed home. Then Sat morning my postman came with another 10!!!!! I cried my eyes out (I blame the drugs) but I really can't say thankyou enough to all of you lovely ladies who have sent me cards and have stayed in touch by text messages, just things like a text message when you are stuck in a hospital means so much!! .....
Now for the pictures .... this is the artwork by my consultant before .....
and after (I've been tangoed) and what a pathetic plaster!!!!!
then this was my transport back from theatre to ward 6
Then here are the cards I have recieved.
These are from,Christine (Hassy) Jan (ScattyJan) Debbie (Padster)
These are from, Nuttie Nettie, Jennie (dragonllew) and Sue (Skiergirl)
These are from, Claire (Wanna-b-rich) Marg, and Karen & Phillip ( Flourgirl & Mr Flourgirl)
These are from, Lucie (sweet baby cakes), Julie (crafty ju ju) and Caroline (CT19720)
and these are from Gemma (Gemm85) Sarah (Rainmac) and Susan (Tomsmum)
And just for the record, after hurling lots of abuse at my legs cause they won't do simple things like lift up when I want them to or move if I want them to (mainly my left leg .... I decided I was sick of my Zimmer frame I was sent home with ....Grand prix inspired me to play with ribbons on my Zimmer ..... what you think? Can't do nothing too exciting to it cause it will have to go back and I have a woman coming out on monday to see me and she probably wont me impressed so best I don't start sticking on gems with acrylic paint!
So once again ladies thankyou for all of your kindness. xxx I am overwhelmed. and thankyou to Sarah for organising it all you are lovely lady xxxxxx
Can I please ask Jennie (Dragonllew) where the lovely image came from, the lady in the bed at the side of me was also a card maker and that image is just perfect for me to take a card back to her when I visit!! xxx
