Christmas 2023

 Hello again...

I managed to get a few cards photographed, though not great shots...




I'm loving sheep this year and atmospheric skies, all painted on cardstock. Oh and there is a lot of sparkle but I couldn't pick that up

Hope you like them

Happy December and Another Update

 Good morning dear friends...

I wanted to pop in to say hello and to thank you so much for the amazing support I have received from you during what has been a very difficult year.

I may not blog much much it doesn't mean that I am not thinking of you nor am I unaware of how many of you have sent cards, emails, gifts and prayers for me and I hope you know how much that has helped on the darkest days, especially when I know you all have your own lives and troublesome times.

I woud very much like to say that I am moving forward and putting everything behind me but it would appear that life has other plans for me and this dreadful 'thing' just won't let me go. According to the all the blurb that you read, I am one of the "rare cases" that experience late effects to the cancer treatment, namely the radiotherapy and now it has has an adverse affect on my lung leaving me breathless and once again having to change my lifestyle. 
I had been experiencing a number of things that didn't seem quite right and so I have been in and out of hospitals, with all manner of scans, bloods, meds etc. and my poor brain is fogged by it all, I'm just glad I pushed the issue with the doctors as nobody warned me of what could come.

I have made Christmas cards and they will be posted out to you and should I be able to do some photographing I will share more paintings for you. You know that creating be it with fabric or paint is my release but I have to take these meds right now and they even affect my eyesight as well as my brain so we'll see.

Next week I am back with the oncologist and hopefully I will have some answers and of course my hope is that I will recover eventually and everything I have endured this year, not just physical but emotionally will not have all been for nothing. I am or was scheduled for more surgery on my scars in January and I am still receiving draining and I probably know more about the whys and wherefores of breast cancer that I ever wanted but such is life.
Be safe my friends and I will be thinking of you
Hugs and love
