About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

My Shed.

My shed and my crafting has been sadly neglected of late. With all the problems with my husbands eye, I have had too much on my mind to think about playing. Today though  I got out there and have had a big sort out and cleared the decks ready for when my mojo gets back..

We are still in limbo as to how things are going to turn out for Ralph but getting on with living.

St Lucy Please Listen

Well the eye surgeon didn't really have any answers, in fact she is referring Ralph for a second opinion to a consultant in Chester. She said during the operation she could not get his eye to move after she had undone what had been done in the first operation. She spent two hours trying to get it to move!! Stopped the operation and went to discuss it with two other eye surgeons. She reckons she has never come across this before and neither had the other surgeons. She has been a consultant for fifteen years or more....

We have to ring each morning to see if he can get the MRI scan sooner than 27th June. The surgeon said to make a nuisance of ourselves...

So we are trying to be upbeat, not easy, Ralph's mum is very upset and angry about the situation and it was sad to hear her on the phone yesterday, the mothers instinct to protect her young was very apparent in the 84 year old lady, I guess it goes to the grave with you.  So we are praying to St Lucy as well as the Good Lord and hoping things will improve as nature takes it course. Thank you for reading and for being there.

Not a Good Week

This past week has not been good. Ralph's operation should have took 40 minutes at most, but took nearly 3 hours instead. He has to have another MRI scan as they have found "inflammation" behind the eye.
He is in considerable pain and the operation was supposed to correct the mistake in the first operation. There has been NO improvement.  We have an appointement with the surgeon who did the operation tomorrow, she better have some good answers  I would be most grateful for prayers and healing thoughts for my darling, just to get back to where he was before the operations. Please.
