All medical terms seem to be in the “ acronym” form, and lately that is what has been a large part of Hugh’s life. And mine, as I consult with Google to decipher some of the mysteries surrounding the heart, the stents, and more.
FUO. RCA. LAD,LMS, LCx, DES and so many more.
The FUO might well be a UFO, as his extremely high fever is a total enigma. Nothing shows on blood tests, ultrasounds or X-Rays so far. he had another emergency trip by ambulance to the ever helpful ED at Wanganui Hospital, yesterday at dinnertime, and an overnight stay in their AAU ( Acute Assessment Unit).
Again my thanks must go to the staff, who would have had many patients there over the long weekend.As we left at midday today, the Rescue Helicopter was there on the heli-pad,which is right in the hospital grounds, I was hoping that there would not be another road accident with more fatalities.
In New Zealand Labour Day is a public holiday on the 4th Monday of October, and commemorates the struggle for an eight-hour working day.It was first celebrated in New Zealand on 28th October 1890.
Well, I can truly relate to the word “ Labour”, it entails firewood, digging up the rows to plant potatoes, planting, lawn-mowing, and driving.but this will finish at some stage. Hooray!!! Listen over the internet for shouts of relief and happiness!!
The wall hanging was done in one of Anna William’s classes, “Print Magic “. The flower is a Tibouchina, and I was so pleased, well, DELIGHTED, ( add totally ecstatic,jumping for joy, even proud of my achievement) when it turned out so well. In those days I was a novice, and free motion quilting something I had not done before, so to be able to start and actually finish this was a real bonus in my quilting life.

“ As we sail through life, don’t avoid rough waters,
sail on because calm waters won’t make a skilful sailor”
