Polkadoodles Digi Chooseday Challenge

Hi everyone it's time for our challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi Chooseday the design team were asked to make a birthday card for our November challenge and add a candle ..well this fab digital image of Ruby Birthday Cake did just the job! I made an easel card and used Octavia Moonfly Papers and one of the fab Winnie Celebration Sentiments...please pop over and join in the challenge and see what the rest of my teamies have made!!!
It's been a long hard slog these past weeks but we are getting there, 
I have been 'on edge' but I think that's only to be expected but at least no alarms have gone off on his Vad pump it's been working great and I can't believe he doesn't get breathless anymore! it's amazing but he's been through a lot and he's still weak but he managed to have a little walk when I took the 'boys' out the other day and then I popped him back in the car while we all went on the beach to blow the cobwebs away.
Thank you all so much for being there for me I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

Halloween Black/Orange with Sweet Stampin Challenge

Hi everyone it's so great to be back!!! even though it might be a hit and miss for a bit lol! Hubby is home!!!! It has been a long 7 weeks but we finally made it and I know it's early days but I'm over the moon. He's managing his 'man bag' and everything to do with that and his 'drive line' that goes into his tummy very well...his appetite is slowly coming back and I've been trying to tempt him with homemade goodies because he needs to build himself up he's lost so much weight...but after being emotionally and physically drained I'm so happy!!! and the 'boys' are too lol 
Onto my card which is for our 'just for fun' challenge over at Sweet Stampin ...it's an LOTV digi stamp and I love this one he's such a clever and cute wizard! So come on over and join in the fun..just add some black/orange and halloween theme ....take care and thanks to you all for 'being there' for me huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Everyone

I just wanted to pop in and let you all know how hubby is getting on...he came home this weekend on 'hospital leave' and he goes back this evening and fingers crossed he is home for good this Wednesday! It has been a really really long 7 weeks ...lots of tears and anxiety (where's Noah I think I flooded the earth with tears LOL!)  He's still very frail and has lost an enormous amount of weight but the most important thing he is here with me because I know a few of my bloggy friends haven't been so lucky.  So the spare room looks like a hospital at the moment with the amount of medication and dressings required to change his drive line from the machine he now has permanently attached but he has a nice 'man bag' to carry it in and our Granddaughter reckons it needs covering in pink furry material with unicorns on!!!! Thanks to each and every one of you that has sent us cards and well wishes I truly appreciate them all. 

Lots of huggles and I hope I can get back to my crafty room soon!!!

Update on 'the hubster'

Paul was transferred from intensive card and everything was looking up his first day was fine he managed to get up and walk with the physio and they had a pedal for him to use when he was sat in his chair and he managed that.
So next morning I got a call to go over and he didn't look well at all so they said he's being transferred back to intensive care his kidney function is down and they are going to put him back on dialysis. So I went over with them and he just looked awful so I was sent to the relatives room while they were putting him back on the machine and chatting to another woman about her husband and then more relatives came in..and one said Oh we've been sent in here there is an emergency and the crash team are working on someone...and I thought oh what a shame because a lovely Irishman had died the previous day 😞 little did I know until the Doctor came and asked to speak to me that it was Paul that was the 'emergency' his heart had stopped and he had been rushed back into theatre. I was totally numb ..couldn't speak and just sobbed. Anyway they found that he had 3 litres of blood that had leaked around his heart and it was compressing it so the poor thing has had his chest opened 3 times in total..so my family came to be with me while we waited for him to come back from theatre and now he is back on all the machines he was on when they first operated and back on the ventilator. So god willing this is his road to recovery because I don't think I have anymore tears left to cry and you feel so helpless but I know he's in the best place. 

I hope you are all well and thanks for your comments...lots of love and huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
