Hello - after a few traumatic days since last Wednesday. I'll explain after showing my desk as that's what you really popped by for.
I have not done any crafting since last Wednesday - so here is my desk as I left it last Wednesday - think I'd tidied up a bit after my photo for last week's WOYWW.
Mr UPS had been with my Stampin Up order. One of the items in my order was the Water Colour Wishes Kit - I've yet to explore it though.
I will visit everyone who visits my desks and those that end in same number as me. If you don't know what WOYWW is then click on the button on side of my blog and join in.
So why no crafting and blog title ???? Here is the short version.
Last Thursday I rang mum making final arrangements for her visit to me to celebrate my Auntie's 90th birthday and my great nephew's Christening.
Three quarters of an hour later she rang me - with help from paramedics.
She had her case open , on the floor emptying it from her holiday in Guernsey - (she had just returned) she tripped over it!!!! Long story short she broke three ribs, fractured her pelvis, internal bleeding, cut above eye, laceration to elbow.
I went down ( she lives in Somerset I am in west Mids) - an awful journey of five hours due to holiday traffic. As I went into hospital doctor was ringing me - you can imagine the panic. I saw mum first and then went to speak to the doctor.
They said the difficulty was that because of the pain she was on a lot of pain killers and this made her sleep - so she was not breathing properly and waste gasses going into her blood. They were also afraid of ribs puncturing the lung. Mum also has heart problems so fear of heart failure. They said it would be futile at that stage to try to resuscitate. Told me to be prepared for her not to pull through. I was devastated.
Anyway move on to Monday - although still in lots of pain mum is out of bed and sending texts ( she is 86 by the way ) - obviously a long way to go and not completely out of danger but she is a lot lot better. My sister who lives by her has returned home from her holiday so I felt able to come home so could sort out some things and celebrate yesterday with my Aunt and also attend the Christening on Sunday. My sister is due to go away again soon so I will return to be with mum with help from my other sister and brother.
If you got this far thanks for reading. Back soon - hopefully.
