Hi Girls, Just a quick note I'm going to be gone for a week or so, my Sis is going into hospital to have an operation and they've said she will be in for a week, urgh! so I'm going to paint the interior of house for my Ma while they aren't in it and im going to be real busy back and forth to the hospital taking supplies in and thier dirty washing out etc etc every day, so i doubt i will get much computer time ! So se you in a weeks time.  i dread to think how many posts i will miss, i've come to really enjoy popping in here everyday and seeing what everyone is upto !! you are great for the spirit you lot  :lol:

Hi Everyone, yay finally back !! took a bit longer than i anticipated but im back at long last !! not sure how much time i will get to nip in everyday though right now, My sis is out of hospital after the op. only it looks like she has an infection in the wound. so it's off to the docs on monday for him to take a look and see what he thinks !!

Whew i feel like ive missed ALOt. havent been able to sew in weeks which is depressing lol, not to worry though, it's giving my wrist a break aswell since my own hospital appt for my wrist is in 9 days !! ohh yipiee im so excited i  cant wait ! :)

Big Hugs. good to be back  bear_wub

Hi Pipa, great to see you again! I hope you sister will be ok, and that it's not infected. Good idea to get it checked out by the doc though.

As for not sewing bears - just think of all that creativity you'll be storing up! It'll all come pouring out when you can get to your needles...and we'll look forward to seeing the results!

Take care  bear_flower

Welcome back Pipa.
I hope that your Sister is feeling better now and that the infection is all sorted out.
How did the painting of your Mums house go, did you get it all finished?
Also I hope that your wrist is a whole lot better so that you will be able to make more Bears.

Hugs

Hi Pipa, glad your sister has some more medication for the wound - I tend to get poisoned wounds whenever I hav eahd to get stitches - so I feel for her - but oh how lucky she is to have you
Not forgetting the wonderful painting work you are doing - (oh how much is your hourly rate?? lol!!)
Anwyay hope the docs goes well for you and there is improvement on your own wrist - looking forward to seeing more furries in the future :thumbsup:

Hi anne !! thanks so much ! hourly rate.. oh my.. that would be £0.00p LOL But then my Ma has given me her whole life bringing me up so that's payment enough ;)

It's horrible when you get infected wounds, we actually asked for the GP yesturday (friday)  to check it out. her wound looks like it is weeping gunk that it shouldnt be,  and he wouldn't come (my sister is disabled and terminally ill, she cant walk so we need house visits from the GP)..told us to call the emergency out of hour doctors if we needed to.. it was 3:30pm on a friday afternoon and he wouldnt come.. So now we have to wait until monday before we can get the GP as you know there is none over the weekend and where i live we cant get the out of hours Or get to a walk in centre bear_sad

Pipa, just caught this thread as I am behind and have just been skimming once a week...but so sorry to hear about your sis...oh it is so heartbreaking isn't it...I really think it is easier to be ill yourself than watch someone you love suffer....esp a sis that you've protected all your life...(if you are a big sis ;))
take care of yourself and hope your wrist heals...and your sisters wound too...
we call our mum Ma too...thought that was a cute similarity...and your mum must look after your sister.  It is a hard job even tho I am the person being cared for..i know it is difficult on them...your mum must feel truly blessed to have you...just hearing about you wanting to fix the house up shows how thoughtful and loving you are...
take care hon
