So many thanks to you all for lovely caring words, the love, support and good wishes from across the oceans have meant so much to me. Every comment or email lifted my heart and soul, and probably my tired body too. I haven’t replied to each of you, and know there are no adequate words to say thank you all over again.
I have had one more trip, last Wednesday, also in the yellow and green van, and this time had a contrast dye scan, the Dr told me very quietly he was looking for an abscess on a kidney!!! No wonder the IV line went in very fast, and some fancy juice took the pain away!!! Will you do it in the morning? I asked, as it was then quite late in the day? No, right now!!! They wheeled me down, I slid slowly onto the narrow, HARD bed, moved forward into the tunnel, obeyed the remote voice instructions “ Breathe in, stop breathing, you can breathe now”, then in went the dye, and another scan.
All is clear, nothing serious anywhere. Just a hiccup with the internal digestive and elimination system after lots of antibiotics.So glad they didn’t look into my brain. I am immensely thankful to all the staff, nurses, cleaners, the ladies who bring the meals, and coffee, and the doctors, specially Dr ??? who stayed in the room to make sure the contrast dye went into the IV line properly, then left quickly, well I guess he did, I couldn’t see very much, as I had my eyes shut tightly!!! A Brave Man !!!
The secret sewing, my dear friend Heather had her birthday this week, and when she came to visit, I had to make sure it was hidden. I made the bag, Joyce did that fantastic embroidery, with Heather’s initial and some extra flowers. Heather was thrilled.
Deep red, with dark strips between each panel, the second photo is a better indication of the fabric colours.
and a close up of the initials and curly stems and flowers.
In the garden, hoop petticoat daffodils are flowering , grape hyacinths blooming, and Felicity was frolicking.

but there is nothing to compare
with coming back home”
