lavender blues

lavender blues




Things have been eventful so I thought I'd keep you up to date. Mr T had a bit of a set back yesterday as he has developed an infection, which could mean another op. So today I have been touching wood and keeping my fingers crossed. I have been looking for good luck signs all day - they opened a check-out at the supermarket and I was first in the queue, three green lights in a row, saw two robins and it rained enough to make watering veg unnecessary but I was cursing myself for looking forward to a few days to myself.  When I saw him today he was up and smiling - pumped full of antibiotics. The infection was no worse so every bit of my will power is on overtime hoping that tomorrow it is on the retreat.
I have been stitching nearly all day- and hopefully will have a few things to share with you soon. I'm lunching with friends tomorrow so that will be good. Life always seems in suspension when you are waiting for hospital visiting time to come round.

I've been there, done that. I understand. Hang in there.

Yep, I recognise it too. It's limbo time and you lose track of the days but hang on to the knowledge that normal service will resume soon. Hope Mr T's infection is beaten and that he's home with you soon. Lesley x

So sorry to hear about Mr T's setback and do hope he will be better soon. It must be horrid being in limbo as you seem to be and hope it won't be long before things are back to normal again for you both. We look forward to seeing your stitching soon - it is good to lose oneself in some form of creativity even if only for moments at a time isn't it?

My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Hoping today finds Mr T closer to being home. They are long old days and nights in hospital and equally long for the one left at home, that's for sure. Your photo is stunning, it absolutely took my breath away.

These men do like to worry us don't they. Here's hoping all will be well very soon, it's a good sign that the infection is no worse and also lucky that you have some distractions ahead.

Thinking of you both. x

I totally empathise with you Jill, the whole hospital ritual drains you. Hope Mr T is on the road to full recovery REAL SOON...enjoy the lunch date with your friends! x x

Best wishes to both of you. I hope for your peace of mind and his healing. Your lavender photo is a beauty. My lavender looks wonderful this year.

Thinking good thoughts for you both. Usually they get these infections under control quickly, so hopefully by tomorrow things will be better already.
