An update, and thanks

Hi friends, firstly thanks for all the lovely comments on my last card. I've been pretty ill again and ended up in hospital after being taken to A&E one night last week. They kept me in a couple of days (the first time I've ever been in hospital, but at least there were a couple of hunky doctors!), and when I came home I was very weak and unwell. I've started to feel a bit brighter now so I wanted to come on and say sorry for not having visited many blogs. After the latest card, I was slowly getting round some blogs, a few each day, but I've not really been up to it since I came home - apologies if yours was one I didn't make it as far as. It's all I can do right now to feed myself and do simple basic stuff in the home, and I have to spend a lot of time lying down which doesn't help. Somehow, I will have to master the art of colouring in a horizontal position, ha haa.

Anyway, I read the comments on my card while I was in my hospital bed - it was soooooooooooooooooooo nice to be able to see them and they really made me smile. Thanks so much!

I've got to have some more tests, but you know how long you have to wait for appointments these days, so not sure when I'll know more. In the meantime, I'm taking really good care of myself and although I still don't feel up to crafting, I've been playing the piano when I've felt OK to sit upright instead. Also, I'm hoping to slowly pop along to say Hi and see what you've been up to.

I haven't got any new cards to show, so this is one I did ages and ages ago, just so my blog post isn't just boring text, he hee.

Your card is adorable with that sweet image and your fabby coloring!!!!! Take you time recuperating, now....I'm sending you lots of hugs and prayers for a full recovery!!!!!

jeanie g said...

Hi Carole hope you're feeling a little better. It's no fun is it when you want to blog and create and there is no way the body responds. Keep safe and listen to that body when it says REST. This is the Pot and Kettle syndrome here. lol

Vicky said...

Eeek Carole!! It sounds like you have had a prtty rough time health wise, I hope you're on the mend again soon!!

Your card is gorgoeus, I love the bright colours

hugs Vicky xxx
