Hello fellow crafters,
I'm so sorry that I have been very slack about blogging, not commenting on your beautiful creations, nor replying to those of you who have left comments. I have just managed to maintain my DT committments. The reason is that I have had a mild dose of blood poisoning, and finally had to have surgery yesterday. I have 7 stitches in my back.
About 10 years ago when I was weeding my garden, I got a rose thorn tip in my back. John couldn't get it out, and for all that time it has sat there, causing not a bit of trouble. However, early last November, it developed into a large abscess. Four courses of antibiotics could not slow it's growth, and I had red streaks coming from it. It has ruptured several times, but then gets even more nasty afterwards, so last week, my Dr. booked me in for an op. yesterday. These past weeks I have been feeling awful, and today I am very sore, and washed out. Hopefully, the op., and this 5th course of antibiotics will have me on top of things in a few days. Healthwise, 2012 was diabolical for John and me, so I certainly didn't want to start off 2013 like this!!!
Thank you all for sticking by me, and I will try to catch up very soon.
