Time for something personal
Thank you all so much for your support and comments about the blog. I shall carry on as ever, and try and portray my life as it is lived, with and without cake photos . . . I am having to rest at the moment as I have managed to get a chest infection again, and after an afternoon in the emergency appointment corrall at the Doctors', now have Gel for Oral Thrush (due to doubling my steroid inhaler as per instructions), a short course of steroids (hopefully my diet won't be totally trashed) and a short course of antibiotics. Fortunately I have an enormous pile of sewing and books to keep me occupied.
On another note, as I wrote yesterday, I don't like to write about family or personal things, but you will have read about my best friend (for the past 59 years) Tricia, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer a couple of years ago. She has struggled on with the help of Chemo (although that in itself has probably wreaked more damage than the cancer). She had to go into hospital late last week, and things have taken a turn for the worse, and she has been on a life support machine. As you can imagine, her family are in pieces, and I am dreading picking up the phone when it rings. Your support and friendship will certainly help carry me through what lies ahead. You don't know how much I am glad to have you as blogging friends.
