Home at Last

Home at last after 13 days in hospital with all its ups and oh so many downs. I am still very very weak but hopefully the next couple of weeks I will begin to get my strength back. I have to take things very slowly for the next six weeks. Sorry no jokes this round really knocked me about.
I would like to thank you all for your words of encouragement they really helped me get through. It will be a little longer before I start to blog but in the next few days I hope to start catching. THANK YOU.

Catchup after Surgery

Good morning to all my beautiful blogging friends. All went well on Wednesday with my surgery. What was supposed to take 3 hours ended up taking  two surgeons 5 1/2 hours. Needless to say it was a massive clean up after all the partying down there.. Hehe.. I still have a long way to go but just wanted to let everyone one know that it was all the good wishes prays and hugs from all my fiends in blog land Facebook and Phillip island Patchworkers not to mention my husband and family that has helped me through this surgery and the recovery that is following.  I can't lift anything more than my iPhone at the moment so I won't be able to answer anyone for quite awhile. THANK YOU THANK YOU  it warms my heart knowing I have all of you out there and makes this recovery so much more bearable. Also seeing the strength in Melody, Joss, Carol (non blogger) shez  and others that I know who put on their smiling faces  helps me through this. sending you all big hugs and kisses xox
Ps sorry about spelling etc drugs  play havoc

After sitting here since yesterday on a liquid diet and today a drip and nil by mouth just before my turn to go into surgery my surgeon got sick and had to cancel my op. So here I am leaving the hospital in pj's ( a fashion statement I thought ...hehe..) My sister in law came to get me because the roads were blocked (a policeman was run over ) and Jim couldn't come with my clothes. Do you think I could start a new trend hehe....Sorry but I have to laugh or I might cry ......happy days :)


At this stage I'm not sure of the new date for my surgery, stay tuned :(

Thank you for all your lovely messages, I will slowly reply to all of them xx

Happy stitching.........

Another finish and Hospital stay

I had a flimsy for some months not knowing how I was going to finish it until I saw Jennys free booby bird stitchery, which helped finish my little quilt beautifully. Thank you Jenny for your lovely free bobby bird pattern which can be found here.
I finished quilting and putting the binding on and it is now ready for me take into hospital. 

I will be going in tomorrow (Tuesday) to continue my prep for the operation on Wednesday. I will be undergoing major surgery for a subtotal colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis (removing my colon). 
I will look forward to reading all your lovely blogs while I am recouperating.


Happy stitching.....
