I like to feel that I'm generally a Happy person and try to be optimistic when faced with a problem. The worse thing that can beset a person of my years is failing Health.
I'm afraid to say that the time has arrived,
My darling Husband Ian has to have Heart surgery to repair a leaky valve and to fit a stent in an artery.
We have one of the finest Heart and Chest Hospitals in the world so that is a comfort to a wife who is a natural worrier!
However,before his Heart is fixed he had to go on Dialysis as his kidneys are not functioning well. This has been going on for quite some time but now is 'crunch' time.
He is, at present, having a tube fitted so that he can have a saline drip to do the work of his failing kidneys. The 'up' side of this the treatment can be done at home, instead of being Hooked up three times per week to a Dialysis machine at the unit. Also it can be done at night whilst he is sleeping... so dear readers, my Heart aches for him. I hate to think of his discomfort.
Happy Day and Hearts full of gladness.
Happy Day, A very proud Papa Ian leading his much loved daughter Astrid down the aisle to be married to Ian Jnr. (another Ian).
A fortune teller recently told one of my daughters that she came from a line of very strong women.
Now for a little humour.
A Shrimp. by Ogden Nash.
(Mr Nash never fails to make me smile and when I smile it means It means)... I'm Happy...
A shrimp who sought his lady shrimp
Could catch no glimpse
Not even a glimp.
At times translucence.
Is rather a nuisance.
That's better a line or two from Ogden Nash alway makes me ......'HAPPY' and better still my darling has phoned to say he will be home soon and all is.... HUNKYDORY.
My thanks to Denise the creator of ABCW and Roger and Leslie who deal with the admiistration of the site and not forgetting the HAPPY BAND OF HELPERS who assist wth the visits each week.
Best wishes to all,
