Good morning everyone. Hope you're all fine and dandy?
I have not been too bad this week. I think losing all that fluid has helped (certainly the breathlessness) and my check at clinic confirmed I'd lost 5kg in the week.
I've always been relieved that the hospital scales aren't speaking ones or I'm sure they'd say "One at a time please" lol!!!
This time, I wouldn't have minded a "woo hoo!!!"
Blood test showed haemoglobin a bit low so got to have another next week. Been munching on spinach and moving on to Special K and black pudding next (not together, obviously lol!)
Maureen, I wish I'd had good thighs before this all started, never mind now, although I may get a best in show at an agricultural event lol!!!
I have had my 2nd Cardioversion appointment through so that's being done again in a couple of weeks (Sandy, I'll give a brief description of what it is at the end of this). Fingers crossed it works for longer than 5 days this time.
On Friday, a few of us had lunch at a friends house and it was lovely to be able to be up to socialising again, so a great time was had with Nesta, Davey and a couple of other good friends.
Now, before I return to the Christmas cards, I thought I would show this card that I made for a lovely friend who had knitted and sent me a divine pair of socks last year (Hope you don't mind me showing it Kate lol?).
White, green and dark peach card
First Edition Boho Chic paper
SB Twisted Palm die (cut a few times to use as a frame)
SB Labels 28 and Decorative Labels 28
Memento Dew Drop Pistachio ink
Stupidly, I haven't photographed the socks, thinking that Kate had shown them on her blog and I could just pop on a link but can I find them on Kate's blog, no!
If Kate doesn't mind, I'll snap them another time and pop them on the blog.
Well, that's me for now except to say, thank you, as always for your kind words about my cards and about my health.
Here's hoping the coming week is kind to you all.
P.S Sandy, Cardioversion (well, Electrical Cardioversion) is a procedure where I will be sedated, then given an electric shock or shocks with a defibrillator to try and get my heart back into normal sinus rhythm. This is what I had done in November but the normal rhythm only lasted 5 days before reverting back to Atrial Fibrillation.
Hope I haven't put anyone off their breakfast lol!!!
