Well I have had the most worrying and bizarre 48 hours. On Wednesday, my dear hubby was in A & E in Epsom General Hospital, having been sent by our GP. He had had a very bad headache for six days and it had extended down towards his eye socket. The GP thought he had Temporal Arteritis and sent him immediately to the hospital. Long story short - it turned out that Mike's heart was not beating fast enough - only 37 beats a minute. He was admitted and treated as an emergency. This morning he leap frogged the waiting list and had a pacemaker fitted and now he's home. It has been like a bad dream. So surreal and so much emotion in such a short space of time and now he just has to keep quiet and still for a week and not raise his arm for 6 weeks. We were meant to go to Tenerife on holiday on Sunday but that's been cancelled now. I can't bear to think about what might have happened had we gone. We're just so relieved. We hadn't realised just how ill he was. Someone's been looking after him for me.
So, this was a card I made for our niece Keri - made before all this drama. She loves Tigger. I bought this stamp with her in mind, so poor girl gets a Tigger card every year! Well I'm off to look after Mike and molly coddle him for a bit. I have been promised a 'New Man'. Can't wait.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
