Bye for Now

To all my lovely bloggy friends and followers -

Some of you will know that my father was scheduled for an op on Tuesday which
was cancelled due to a bed shortage - in fact the whole list was cancelled.

Yesterday he ended up back in hospital as he had lost the use of his left hand
and they are suspecting a TIA (mini stroke) - he is having more tests today and
the op at the moment has been rescheduled for 3rd November.

In addition to this on Sunday I completely lost the sight in my right eye - I do
suffer from migraines but this was very different and very scary.  Those of you
who know me personally will know that I m hopeless at this sort of thing - and 
avoid all medics!! like it s not happening to me - put it in a box and it ll go away!!

Well I did the sensible thing yesterday and went to see my GP who sent me to the hospital
and like father like daughter they are suspecting a TIA but more tests on Friday.

I have been told to rest and avoid stress - as if that s possible in today's world!!

So for now thank you to all who have supported me in Blogland and
I wish you all well but I must take a break and look after me for a while.

Some blog posts have been pre scheduled so you might see those around for a little while.

Love and hugs Judith xxx

  14. Oh hun I have only just seen this !!! I do hope you are both ok, please rest up. Sending lots of healing hugs xxx

  15. Judith I did wonder about a TIA when you said about losing sight in your eye-could have been brought on with the stress of your Dads health-they said mine were possibly down to stress -have you had any lately-----hello welcome to the real world and as for avoiding stress how does that work??? :) hope you both make a swift recovery
