Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you and yours but to those I know are struggling at the moment, I want to share this card with you.
Now, I made this card for my dear friend Nesta after her Dad became ill in the Summer. Although things didn't look good (he passed away in November) I saw this stamp and bought the set as I thought it a lovely sentiment, with her in mind.
I'm not usually given to to displays of flussiness but I just thought it was quite uplifting.
Nesta did appreciate it, bless her.
Its a different post post today as I am going in to hospital this morning for a kidney biopsy.
I did debate whether to tell you all but as I have
bored shared with you all my other health adventures, I thought I should bore share this one too as you have always been lovely, supportive and encouraging.
I have been diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease but they don't know the cause (scan and blood tests were clear) hence the biopsy to see if they can establish the cause, what the extent of the damage is and if its reversible but currently, my kidney function is half of what it should be for a lass of my tender years.
I'm beginning to think, if I were a horse, I would be in a tin with gravy by now.
Its all been a bit fraught and finding out a week before Christmas was a bit of a shock, especially when the consultant suggested some ways of helping myself, one of which was lose some weight.
Lose weight over Christmas..............eeeeek! Kick a gal when she's down why don't you!!!
Well the Thornton's Viennese Truffle diet does work as I'd lost a kilo (goodness knows how) when I went for my pre op check last Friday.
To be honest, I'm more worried about the results than the procedure, along with having to lie still afterwards for about 6 hours. I don't think I have ever lay still for 6 hours, even when I am in bed. I could fidget for England so that should be interesting, especially as I'm full of cold and laying flat sets me off coughing like a navvy on Woodbines.
Still, I know that there are lots of folk going through or have loved ones going through worse so its chin up (well, chins plural lol!!!) and hope for the best, hence my sharing this particular card today.
I want to advise members of the Wisteria Action Relocation Team (WART) that it will not be left unguarded during my sojourn. My neighbours CCTV is on 24 hour watch and I have stepped up security patrols.
Wish me luck and hope you enjoy the card.
