Hello Crafters

This needs to be a quick post as I have been given the lap top for the first time since I came out of hospital and the family have given me time limit so that I do not attempt to work on it!!! WHATEVER!!!  Unfortunately I will be absent from blog land (with any pieces of work or Allsorts Challenge) for a few weeks as I have had an unexpected admission into hospital which resulted in an operation to remove my Gall Bladder!  I have been home for 5 days and unfortunately still stuck upstairs as I cant manage the stairs yet as I am still quite sore.  Fortunately it was key hole surgery but it looks as if I have been shot 4 times in the stomach!!

I hope that you will all stick with me on the blog and keep popping by to see if I have been able to update (that's when I persuade the security to give me the lap top - do they not trust me?!!!)

My biggest problem at the moment is knowing what to eat as the hospital gave me strict instructions to go on a fat free diet for at least 3 weeks and then slowly onto low fat (although they dont send you out with any more information than that ??)- if anyone has any fat free food ideas I would love to hear from you.

Fingers arent starting to itch yet for my crafting as I am still feeling a bit under the weather but I dont think it will be long so when I am allowed playtime on the laptop I will pop into blogland and have a look around.

I can hear security coming up the stairs so must dash (when perhaps not dash!) and will be in touch soon.
Thank you for popping in,
Bye for now
Jo xxxx

  9. Hi Jo, wondered where you were, and sorry to hear you've been in hospital. I had my gall bladder removed about 10 years ago, but it sounds like you have had a tougher time than me..keyhole surgery, in over night, given a month off work but back to normal within a week..and told I could eat what I wanted! You'll soon be well again and feel better than ever, probably realising that it had been niggling for some time and you has just dismissed it, take care and have lovely crafty thoughts! Hugs, Carole Z X

    Try and listen to 'security' once in a while and I'm sure your recovery will be much speedier!
