Noticed that I haven't posted much lately? There's a good reason my lovely blogging friends.
Last Thursday, I underwent surgery for breast cancer.
When I got a recall letter from my latest mammogram, I wasn't too concerned as I had been recalled before, with nothing coming of it. That didn't happen this time. Funnily enough, I was half expecting it. Dunno why, just did.
Within two weeks I'd been seen by the surgeon and the Macmillam breast care nurses, told my options and waited for Thursday 25th March. I came home on Saturday and was strapped up and trussed up. (Still am for now). Alan, my hubby has looked after me brilliantly bless him.
This week wasn't the best I'd ever had, but it was nowhere near as bad as my imagination thought it was going to be. I have to sleep propped up on my back for now, but that's about the only inconvenience I have, apart from not being able to drive yet. (Even managed to take Harvey for a short walk with alan keeping guard in case it got too much. I was fine. I'm sore, but can put up with the painful 'bits' for now. It will pass, so no need to dwell on it.
I'm lucky. I went for my mammograms. Please go when it's your turn. It's so much easier to deal with and the prognosis is really good.
So there you have it. The reason for my lack of posts. I haven't, obviously, been able to play for a while, but today I feel good and wanted to get into my craftroom and make a card. It's taken me nearly all day, but I did it. I saw this image over at the wonderful 'Whimsie Doodles' blog and had to buy her. The papers are from Pink Petticoat.
Some of you already know what's been happening and I have been overwhelmed with the wonderful kindness and support, cards flowers and gifts from my fabulous friends both home and abroad. You are second to none!
I shall leave it there now that I've explained. Don't want to depress everyone, do I! Ha Ha.
At least you know why I haven't been visiting lately too and if you want to talk, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks for calling by
