Today I feel so blessed. So blessed that my beautiful eldest daughter, mother of my 2 grandsons 2 1/2 and 12 weeks old is safely back home. You see, after having successful gallbladder surgery followed by a day surgery to remove a stone they couldn't reach with the previous surgery she returned home but a few days later, early Sunday morning she collapsed and was bleeding. Yesterday she came home after 2 days in ICU and one day on a ward. After 4 units of blood , another surgery followed by a gastroscopy we are so relieved that she is well on the mend now. She is an amazing gal. Today she was resting at home and feeding my little baby grandson. Yes, actually breastfeeding him.
Thankyou to a special bloggy friend who prayed for us and to another special friend who sent me a care package before the last awful turn if events. Our healing angels have been working overtime.
So, as you can imagine, not much creativity has been happening here. This is as far as I have got with my table topper.
I found these in a drawer which I had stitched ages ago for Christmas gifts. To be honest I have no idea which Christmas they were for .
It has taken me about 3 weeks to finish this book. I just wasn't in the right headspace for reading much.
So many things went awry during this time. I had to have a couple of procedures the morning after my daughter's rush to hospital. Even her poor hubby had to have a tooth extracted. I guess the planets weren't aligning or some such thing. One has to try to keep their sense of humour but this latest episode really tested me. I hope your week has been a blessed one.
