before I post the tutorial I would like to thank you all for your positive thoughts and best wishes for a good results after my biopsy's. On the 27th July I had to go back to the hospital for a check up from last years health scare. I had a couple of scans and then had a consultation with the specialist who said it looked like the abnormal cells had grown slightly and that she would like to do a biopsy there and then. I got taken into a room where she took 2 biopsy's and said that she would like me to have a more in depth biopsy under a general. On the 28th July I had a phone call from the hospital asking if I could go in on Monday 1st August. I just panicked thinking they had found something. I arrived at the hospital 12.30pm and eventually went down about 3.30pm. When I came round, they said they couldn't find me a bed and that they would just send me home straight away. At this point I couldn't even lift my arms let alone walk out. Day surgery then rang through and said they had a spare bed for me, so my bed was pulled out into a corridor where my bed was attached to little motorized cart and was driven over to the other side of the hospital. It was like the dodgems, if he hit one wall he must have hit a dozen. It was the most uncomfortable 10 minute ride I've ever had,we went from one side of the hospital to the other but the nurse that had to walk along side me had a wicked sense of humor and didn't let him get away with any knock into the walls, doors or dodging pedestrians, and also a ride in a lift too, at first the lift wouldn't move and I panicked and said I need to get out. I can't stand lifts. I was so glad the whole procedure was over I think I would have let him drive me all the way home with that little cart, that would have been a sight to see, me laying in bed a nurse running beside me and this young trainee doctor dodging the cars on the Salisbury bypass. Oh and with a big umbrella to boot as it was chucking it down. It would have looked like a Carry on Film. Stick with me girls I could show you a fun time, what do you reckon!
Regarding the tutorial, I was going to take a few more pictures of the finished flower, but yesterday Paul's brother and his wife came over for some drinks and eats and Liz asked if I had done any crafting lately. I said not since I made Claire and Toby's 2nd Anniversary card, and that the card was all about daffodil's, when I posted Claire & Toby's card I was asked if in time would do a tutorial for the daffodil. Which I did, and for months I only had to put narration to the pictures but never found the energy to do that, sorry!
Liz ( sister in law ) asked if she could see the daffodil, so I went to my workroom to get the said flower. I went out to the garden with replenished glasses of wine and said to Liz, this is the flower that is going on my blog tomorrow. She looked at it and said how pretty it was, then opened her handbag and said to Ellie dog. I'll put this in my handbag before you stand on it and crush it. I shall keep this with all my other cards you have made for me. Paul said my face was a picture as he thought she just wanted to see the flower and not take it home. I wanted to say Nooooo, but she seemed so happy to take that little daffodil home I didn't have the heart to say I still need it. So I hope I have taken enough pics for this tutorial. Later in conversations they both admitted that their hearing is really bad lately. so it makes it even more special that she thought I had made that flower for her.
At this point my lovely friends, I would like to say a very very big heartfelt thank you to you all for sharing some of the saddest and darkest days of our lives. You have cried with me sent endless hugs and never ending love. Your support over the last 5 months has been constant, to me that is called true friendship and I love each and everyone of you for still being here for us. Thank you is just not enough but it truly comes from my heart.xx
