Oh what a week it has been. I have had my mum staying for a few days and that means we spend alot of time out and about which is great for me as it is something I don't get to do very often anymore as I cannot get around in my wheelchair without someone to push me. Oh what joy it will bring when the hospital finally agree to an electric chair but then again the poor people of Lowestoft had better all stay home lol.
Secondly I took my son Jake back to the hospital yesterday and the doctor was not happy with how the arm is healing. As there were two breaks it has made it hard to keep them both in the right position to heal. The doctor said he could operate again that afternoon to break the arm and reset it but he could give no guarentee that the arm will not be deformed. Now saying that in front of a 15 year old who is at a stage where looks matter *bless him* was not good, he is now thinking his arm will be on backwards!!! if you know what I mean. As the doctor had not convinced me and I was not going to agree to a third operation until I had spoken to my husband so we left the hospital and were told to call them when ready. Also my mum who came to the hospital with me was appalled at what the doctor had said and was ready to have ago so it really was time to take our leave. Having discussed it with my husband and Jake we have decided to wait until the cast comes off in three weeks time to see what the arm looks like and whether he can use it properly or not as this is his writing hand. If the arm is not as anyone would expect it to be we will agree to them operating on that day. The doctor has said it will not make any difference leaving it until then, so watch this space.......
At last a card! I started this card last Saturday at a crop and it has taken this long to finish, the challenge I originally started it for had changed theme. So I have used the sketch from Create 4 Fun Challenge and it fits nicely into the theme of 'Winter Wonderland' over at Die Cut Dreams Challenge and La La Lands Challenge theme of 'Sparkle'. The sentiment I used is a new one from the 'A Christmas Wish' set available from 'Crafty Sentiments' plus if you pop on over to the blog Suzette is having a blog candy to win a set of sentiment stamps but be quick it ends on the 31st October 2009.
