Lovely mail and turning the corner...

Hi Peeps!

It's been a little while again since I've blogged and just giving you an update. I'm doing ok, the various infections are abating (I know nobody is waiting for the gruesome details, lol!!) and better a little every day.

Since yesterday I manage to stay awake all morning. Still need to sleep in the afternoon as tired out after being awake that long but an improvement over sleeping twice a day as well as all night! I also started to read books again yesterday. Which is a great improvement over being too weak and tired to read. So really happy about it all although I am starting to get impatient with the incredibly slow progress on all of this... My GP keeps saying I have to have patience... that it was a heavy operation and I cannot expect to much to soon...

I must say I am a little disappointed to not have a least an outline drawn for DQS8 but I am thinking about it so hoping that once I start drawing it will come together quickly.

I also was surprised by some lovely mail!!


Jo (Bearpaw) sent me a lovely get well soon card with a sweet heart made up of buttons. Thank you so much Jo! Then Mandy (Mandalin18) sent me a card all the way from Australia, with some beautifully crafted beadwork. It is beautiful Mandy as is the self made card. I really appreciate you thinking of me!

As a total surprise I was sent a calendar by Sherry of the Irish Quilting Magazine. I sent in a top for their Irish Flood Appeal a while back and hope the lovely ladies helping out in Ireland got all their blocks and tops worked into quilts and to the affected areas. I didn't expect to receive anything at all but I'm delighted with my calendar!! Thank you so much Sherry! It is not only a lovely calendar with room to write and a quilt every month beautifully photographed... It also has an inlay with all the patterns in it too! A fantastic present!

Margueriteeeeeeeee! Yeah...up and reading and posting!! FAntastic!:)

No worries about your doll quilt. If you have an idea in your head then you are doing just fine!:) And anyway...whoever is lucky enough to get a quilt from you will cherish it even more knowing what went into it...I know I would!:)

You just make sure you listen to your GP and don't be impatient got it?:) I mean it really hasn't been that long since it happened....sleep when you body says sleep!! It is amazing how strong is the recuperative healing powers of sleep!!

And kudos to your son for letting you use his laptop. I know that is not an easy thing to do!:)

Thanks Dee, I really hope I have turned to corner as for an active person this really isn't much fun!

Lauranie, thanks for your comment too. However, I can imagine lounging in bed all day would be fun if you could do it to take the day off and when you wanted to... Wanting to get up and do stuff and being too exhausted really isn't the same!! Hope you get all your things done, I know how busy you are!!

Where have I been??? You poor little thing. Gosh I hope you are back to normal really soon, it must be so frustrating for you. Lovely gifts from some very kind people too. Love the button heart.

Oh my!! I was wondering why I hadn't seen you around and just found out about your surgery and complications. Ugh! I am so sorry you have been dealing with this.

However, I am sooo very glad that you are on the mend!!

Happy thoughts (and healing thoughts) headed your way!
