Such is Life

 Hello friends....

My apologies for not having visited you for a while, life has thrown me a few curveballs lately and I'm trying to deal with it.
All my results are back and the good news is that my spinal fusion is fine albeit that the stenosis has herniated another disc but so far it isn't causing any problems. The other results are not so favourable and I have to undergo surgery again, I don't have a choice.  Five discs in my neck  have succumbed to stenosis and osteoarthritis and are pressing on my spinal cord causing the nerve pains in my arm, eventually they will cause total paralysis so you see why I have no options.
It certainly wasn't the news I was expecting or prepared for and I am still trying to come to terms with it. I have to go to a specialist hospital but I have no idea when this will be as Covid created a huge backlog of patients. In the meantime I am hoping things don't get worse - I feel like I am living on a knife edge.

Anyway, I do have a couple of cards to share - I did do a few paintings but so far I have not been able to make them into cards, my fingers have become less dexterous.

This first card is a birthday card I sent to my lovely blog friend Greta... I hope it arrived and that you enjoyed a wonderful birthday Greta.

Sorry if the photos are a little blurry

And another birthday card for a friend

I painted the plant but the balloons are stenciled and I even use some glitter - I've still got pots of the stuff in all colours

I'm hoping to visit you all today and see waht you've been up to.

Stay well and have a good day
