Another Quick Update

Hi All

Just to let you know the latest happenings here.

My brother is doing well after his stroke. He is now home and we're playing Carer/Nurse/etc ensuring he is doing OK. His Rheumatoid/Osteoarthritis are holding him back at the moment. He's in a lot of pain with that and the Dr has upped his meds to see if it helps more.

I've been in hospital for nine days with worsening kidney failure. I've now had the pre-dialysis talk and am deciding which route to go for on dialysis which will probably have to start in the New Year.  I've got a CT scan the day before Christmas Eve and another type of scan in a different hospital on New Years Eve!  It's all good fun huh!

Not a good start, but it can only go up from here now can't it!!!! Fingers crossed it goes upwards anyway after all the downs we've had with health issues.


Have a very Merry Christmas and

a Happy New Year too! 

Once everything is more stabilised I'll see you all in the New Year and be back to some sort of crafting too! Who knows, I might even be able to do some whilst having dialysis.
PS. If anyone has dialysis please contact me as I'd love to ask some questions if you don't mind!
