Thank You!!

I've just been reading the comments left on my last post and I have tears running down my face at the beautiful well wishes left. Thank you so much for caring about someone most of you have only met through blogland.

My recovery is going slowly, I'm not in too much pain but I can't seem to get on top of the nausea just yet...but it's early days still.

I'll pop in here when I can to give an update, but it might be a while before I'm up to much.

Checking in.

Hi everyone, I'm just popping in to give you all an update on why I've been MIA lately. If you read the previous message posted by my daughter, Jo, you'll know that I've had surgery. Well, I'm home now, but unfortunately it's not good news I'm afraid. I went into hospital for a bowel obstruction which turned out to be bowel cancer......not something I was wanting to hear, especially after my Mum died of it just over 2 yrs ago! It's been something that I've been kind of expecting to happen, but not at age 54!

My family have been wonderful and supportive, although it's come as a huge shock to us all. I will be fighting it all the way and will be starting chemo, probably next month. I'm not a religious person, but I will take all the prayers, well wishes, positive vibes etc you can send my way. I hope to be well enough soon to be able to contribute some art to my blog, but please understand that it may be a bit sporadic.

Thanks to those who left comments and well wishes on Jo's post, I have over 600 emails sitting waiting to be read so it might be a while before I get around to answering those. If any of my fellow OSA members are reading this, please feel free to pass this info onto the might be a while before I can join in again.

Sorry Sandie and Vicky, but I won't be able to do a catch up at the next Picture to Page show. Angela, if you're reading this, I did get my SU order the day before I went to hospital...thanks for that.

OK, I think that's it for now! Bye for now.

Re:Lyn's update

Hi, I am Joanne, one of Lyn's twin daughters. Just letting you all know that Lyn will be unavailable to use her blog for a little while. She has just had surgery and will be recovering in hospital for the next few days. So stay tuned, it may be a couple of weeks before she is feeling well enough to do her blogging. I am sure you will all join me in wishing her a very speedy recovery.

Thanks, Jo.

Good morning everyone! Sorry I've been MIA all week, I just haven't been feeling the best. I'm having a lot of problems with my left eye at the moment which is affecting my vision. Hopefully now, after a visit to the doctor, I am getting it under control. So I'll make this a quick post while I can see clearly right now.

This is just a quick card that I made as a birthday card for my DH's sister. I was late making it and needed to keep it fairly flat for posting, so it's fairly plain. I used a stamp from Stampin' Up's 'Seaside Sketches' set (retired). I love this set, but don't often use it. I coloured the image using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. DP is by SEI.

Thanks for looking, I'm way behind on my blog reading too, hope to catch up as soon as my eye is better!

Take care!
