I was lucky enough to have two special visitors while I have been in hospital. Susan aad Cheryl called for a visit and brought coffee and chocolate. How lucky was I? You know that's the good thing about our blogger group. We started in Nundle years ago and we have picked up some on the way and everyone is kind and caring. I just love the connections made through our blog group we are even international. I thank our "Producer" Chooky, thats what I'm going to call her anyway ,is amazing in keeping the tribe motivated and in touch. Love you all . I am leaving hospital tomorrow and I am so happy about that. I have had excellent care here, the nurses and doctors cant help you enough. I met Cheryl twice since I've been in Brisbane, lucky me . The photo of Susn is not current but just so you know who im talking about.

Paused for my back

From one set back to another - on November 7 (Melbourne Cup Day) I had surgey on my back to fuse L 4 and L5 vertebrae together to free my nerves to my legs which were being constantly squashed by arthritic degeneration and build up of boney growhhs. I'm now in my second week of recovery and currently in the Mater Private Hospital rehabilitation centre in Brisbane. I wasn't planning on being here this long but looks I'll be here until next Thursday /Friday. It's better every day but there is an issue with it bleeding. so until the little leak has stopped I'm stuck here. They will not risk infection. Also my left leg isn't doing so well and needs strength build up. The rehab centre here is very good and the staff are wonderful and kind. But " it is what it is " as they say. I'm just hoping for an early mark. Recently I started a group of stitcheries by Nikki Tervo about "Christmas Mice." I am trying hard to get into it but maybe tomorrow. I have done a couple now for thr third. Im sorry to be out of the loop a bit but I will be back once i feel better. I may not be commenting but I am watching.
