WOYWW and Sorry....and Thanks...!

It's WOYWW again, I know I missed it last week, but I had a few problems - see below.  Will have to be quick visits today before hospital - sorry!

I've had a few health issues here lately, I spent all day in A&E being poked and prodded and more bloods taken (I had 10 bottles taken last week alone!) only to finally get home and the phone rings and the Dr asks me to go back to the hospital...!!!

Anyway, it turns out after 2 months free of my DVT, I now have ANOTHER DVT in the same leg, from the top of the thigh to almost my ankle this time.  I'm back on the injections and am waiting to go to the Anti-Coagulant clinic again to find out more.

Also my kidneys are spiralling downward at a rapid rate and I'm waiting to see the Renal Specialist about that.  Thank heavens my cancer is stable....at least that's something!!!

Hence not much cardmaking has been going on, however I am able to show you the crochet work I've been doing with the wool from the USA.  Don't they look colourful...!!!  They look lovely and I'm sure the kitties will like them when I next visit . 

I'd also like to thank GILL for sending me the gorgeous cards for the cancer charities, and also to LUNCH LADY JAN for the simply brilliant sewing which she has so kindly sent me a huge parcel of different goodies for the cat shelter to sell at their next Fayre - thanks again - you're all wonderful generous people to help others and it is much appreciated.  Thank you!

Well due to the health issues, I won't be able to be on here much now, just when things were improving too.  I hope you can all understand that I think my health has to come first and I will not be entering some of the few challenges that I've recently tried my best to do.  Writing does not come across the same as talking, so I don't want anyone to misunderstand my reasons for thinking of my health before blogs/cardmaking.

Thank you all for your patience (no pun intended!) and I will be back on whenever I can (hospitals allowing!).  As you can tell by my words, it's NOT getting to me, it's just something else to add to the already long list of health problems.  I'm just going to put a big black cross on the door now....tee hee....always positive, always laughing!!!!  I think that's why I'm still here!!!  Positivity works doesn't it whether your problems are big or small.

Oh, on my last WOYWW Julia asked if we pick the colours according to our moods, mine was blue/greens at the time, but it was only because I was making Dad's Day cards and a male birthday card - no other reason.  What do you all think? Do you pick the colours according to how you feel? Or do you pick them because of what you are making or who the recipient is?

I also made a couple of "Get Well Cards" recently (they will be uploaded later) - perhaps I should send myself one to cheer myself up! LOL!!!

Have fun everyone and see you all soon!

Hello.... thought I'd scan backwards and see what the health woes are and here I see a) you're doing Crochet too and b) oh look, your header is from Jo at Siggi Shop, same as mine. I must get her button to add to my blog. LOL.

I think you and I should move in together and share the black cross on the door. My woes are a little different - fibroids, a possible hernia they still can't decide on and carpal tunnel. Not forgetting the compacted vertebrae and herniated discs. LOL.... If we were animals we'd have been put down. Thank heavens for crafting eh? Glad to see you're so positive, keep smiling - until they take your teeth too! LOL....
