But before I share my only finish this month I have some news to share. I don't know why but life certainly has not been on my side the last few years, especially the last six months. After a successful lumpectomy my preventative chemotherapy was due to start Monday 11th but it is now on hold as last Wednesday (6th) I tripped in the garden and fell onto our decking.
DH took me to Accident and Emergency; he wasn't allowed in due to the virus restrictions but everyone was so kind and reassuring. After x-rays and a CT scan they confirmed I have broken my upper right arm just below the shoulder joint. It is very painful, this injury mends best when the arm is hanging with a sling around the neck and wrist. It's tempting to put a pillow to support it but that can cause more damage, it really is painful not having it supported.
I am having to sleep sitting up too but have so far managed in bed. I have done nothing but sit in the chair or go the bathroom, due to MS my legs have suffered from the trauma, standing up is tricky and sends a shooting pain down my arm ...... but each day it is a little easier. Today I am just about lasting the time between medication (6 hours), the other days I have needed some morphine to help.
I see the fracture doctor on Monday, my Oncologist is also going to look at the x-rays and scan - I'm just going with whatever they say .... it's like being in a dream, I feel quite numb with it all.
Anyway on to brighter things .... I may not have much to blog about for a while unless I can learn to stitch left handed.
It's turned out ok I think. It does make me think about copyright doing these cards but I did buy the magazine originally, quite a few years ago, and I will only be stitching them for the given cards, not using the design elsewhere.
I have some lovely things to share for GG in May so I'll be blogging on the 15th, with arm/cancer update by then too I hope. I hope everyone is well and staying safe x x
