I look at the world news, and cannot understand how the violence can carry on.We all hate what is happening, and the way to cope is to combine with love and friendship.
A while ago I saw a lovely wall hanging over at Kathleen McMusing 's blog, and she very kindly sent me the pattern. I made one, and now I have seen another one in different colours, will do it all over again.Later on, when life is somewhat back to normal.
This was fun to do and even more so when it was all stitched. Thanks so much Kathleen for sharing your " Mountains" with us.
Meantime on the home front, Sunday was a re-run of Friday, again very high blood pressure, and our trusty local ambulance arrived in THREE minutes. Two delightful men in green, and off I went in the green and yellow ambulance . This time the doctors decided to keep me in overnight, I shared a room first with a tiny lady, a dear soul of 99, very deaf, and in so much pain after a fall, ribs not good, they transferred her to a ward that could give more care about 8 p.m. then the next lady arrived, 99 also, blind and deaf, and so thankful for all the staff did. A night filled with regular blood pressure checks, and Monday morning a visit from the specialist on the next rung up the ladder. It seems that he thinks there may be changes ( More calcification maybe) in two arteries, so has scheduled a nuclear scan. This is a lengthy process, dye into a vein, wait, then have a resting scan, then wait, then a stress exercise, and then the radioactive isotope goes in, while you pedal, go on the treadmill, or they give you a shot of Dobutamine, that makes your heart race!!! All the time the ECG shows what is happening. BUT, no coffee for the day before or on that day, no tea either.
So I was told to take the next two weeks slowly, not a problem as the changes in my meds have dropped the blood pressure to my boots!! A check up with my GP, and see how I go.
I am thankful for what our daughter calls " The Army" who arrive regularly, housework now all done as I sit and watch, kitchen cleaned, another top-up of firewood arrived this morning and two more friends with willing hands and strong bodies will stack that away. One more photo, my addled brain cannot edit and straighten a totally crooked pic of the wood!!!
Thank you all so much for your so caring words and loving thoughts.They mean so much. As our breakfast girl said on the morning Television Broadcast, returning to work after her unborn baby died , all the comments on Facebook and Instagram meant so much to know so many cared and shared their own story,
" Love conquers all"
Quotation of the day, from my autograph album, written by a friend in December 1953
" Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own"
