I'm Still Here

Good afternoon folks i hope you are all keeping well and warm,i cant believe this weather can you?, anyways i thought i would pop on here and let you know how things are going!!!!!, i am feeling much better now still have the heart nurses out but once a month now, still not had any treatment for my rheumatoid so been laid up in agony with that at the mo, as the one i was on makes heart failure worse so they want me to have a different one  but i'm not sure what to do so am waiting until i see the heart consultant next week.

I now also have a bakers cyst in my knee joint 'ouch' i tell you its flipping painful and they may have to drain it, i aint looking forward to that i can tell yer lol. Mind you one good thing is i lost a lot of weight 4 stone lol.

Mother in law has had a op as she fell over and broke her leg and they have had to plate and screw it, then my poor brother feel through a roof so he's damaged his shoulder and is waiting to see if it needs surgery, but i'm hoping to be back crafting soon but depending on my recovery i may have to change my style a bit but we will have to wait and see what happens.

Any way that's it from me for now and i will catch up with you all soon, take care and have a lovely Easter Weekend whatever your doing

Hello I'm here lol

Good Afternoon all you lovely folks out there,i would just like to say a big Thank You for your get well wishes and cards they are all so beautiful.

As you can image it was a big shock being told that i have heart failure at 56yrs of age,i now have to change my life so no more rushing around like a headless chicken lol,i did have a good Christmas as i came home on Christmas eve at 9.30pm, i'm still waiting to have an MRI scan done of my heart to try and find out why its enlarged and not working properly at first they thought it was the pneumonia causing it or blocked arteries but the angiogram was clear, anyway i'm now on more medication but at least i'm still here.

I haven't done any crafting yet but hope to real soon...... some days i feel so tired its untrue but i have to put up with that for now at least.

I would like to wish you all a Very Healthy Happy New Year

Update on Gina

Good evening this is Gina's husband Terry just letting you know that she is home and waiting some more tests MRI Scan ect, she is very breathless still at the minute and will have to take tablets for her heart for the rest of her life her heart is much bigger than it should be and her heart was beating at 188 per min nearly three times what it should be they are doing an MRI to find out if its a heredity condition if it is then both our children and her brothers will all be tested, we are also waiting for a cardiac nurse to come and see her at home.

Gina also asked me to wish you all a Very Happy Healthy New Year, i'm sure that as soon as she feels well enough she will be back on here. terry

Monday 24 December 2012

hi all, this is terry gina's husband, she has asked me to let you know that she wont be on for awhile as she was admitted to hospital on Wednesday suffering from pneumonia and heart failure caused by a leaking valve, today (monday) she is having tests to see what course of action doctors will take, may be able to come home till thursday, but i doubt it to be honest, i will keep you updated as we go along, terry.
