  1. Sorry I have been MIA for a while. Our son who had Influenza A was in hospital for 4 weeks. He is recovering at home. Then on Tuesday this week David was taken by the paramedics to hospital from the doctor’s surgery with a suspected heart attack. Turns out he has/had influenza A which has left him with viral cardiomyopathy. He came home yesterday with a whole new eating regime to get our heads around and lots of medication whereas before he wasn’t taking any. Then on Friday I had my second cataract surgery after it was postponed 3 weeks ago because my lens had not arrived at the hospital. But all good now & we can move forward.

      Laraine, you have been having a busy time with medical events. I hope that it all improves for each of you.

  2. It's been a rough week - my SIL is having heart surgery tomorrow and that's all I can think about. The surgeon has a 75% success rate but that does little to relieve my anxiety. I know I'm behind in CT work but just can't focus right now.  If you can send prayers or good thoughts his way, my family will appreciate it.

      I know I am late in adding my thoughts... hope that all has gone well. I know all about heart conditions. My Ken is still going strong after his main artery being 99% blocked 2 years ago.

  3. It is one year since my sister Sharon’s near fatal accident. I am so so grateful that the Lord spared her, and that she’s still here with us. She may be a bit broken, but she is so strong, and a fighter.

      Andrea, it is good news that you still have your sister and that she is still doing well in recovering. Where has that year gone?

  4. This afternoon I am going in for cataract surgery on my right eye. Will be so glad when it’s done & both eyes are working properly. I will still need glasses for reading & close work but at least I will be able to see more clearly than 10 feet in front of me.

  5. Happy Easter, everyone! :)

  6. We are heading off in the morning in our caravan for a 3week trip in to Western Queensland. It is called the natural science loop. We may discover some dinosaur bones (ha,ha) & will probably look for opals.

      I hope you have safe travels and a wonderful time. Are you going to Longreach? The Stockmans Hall of fame is a great place to visit.

  7. Yesterday I finished the Dementia online course I was doing and now will start another one next month as I have gained so much knowledge from this one.

      The last test I did I received a mark of 90% and the two questions I missed I felt it was due to the wording of the questions - one had a true or false answer and I felt it was false but looked back at the notes it appeared to need the answer to be "true" which in the end was not the correct answer.

  8. Many of you know Julie Sherwood...a designer at many stores. She passed away from cancer today which was also her birthday. I met Julie at a scrapping meetup quite a few years ago. When I told her I loved her kits and would someday like to be on her CT, she immediately added my name to her group.  RIP, my friend.

      She was a talented designer. I own a few of her kits. I pray for her family and loved ones who are grieving.

  10. I talked to our son aka Humpty Dumpty this morning, they put him back together again.. He sat up and ate for the first time since Sunday morning. His surgery was over about 1 this morning. They had him up and walking with a walker but after about 4 feet he got rid of it and walked. He should make a great recovery. Thank you all for the support.

  19. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I spent it in the hospital, but I did have turkey for dinner. I have what they call non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. They had to drain fluid out of my abdomen and send it out for testing. My oxygen level was low so I had to go on oxygen. I had so much blood work done on me I felt like a pincushion. I came home on Friday night. I'm on two different diuretics and a very low sodium diet. Crikey!

  22. My crooked curling pinky is Dupuytren's disease, the treatment is very expensive injections of Xiaflex. Anyone have any experience with that or the disease? TIA

      Debby, I am so sorry you have this health issue. I would be looking into alternative medicines before trying the expensive injections.
