Not A Good Week!!

Nearly a week since I posted last, and it really has not been a good week at all ! The doctor arrived eventually on Tuesday to find me rolling in agony from what I now know to have been an infection in one of my legs !! Part of the problem was also panic on my part as my one thought about this angry red swelling was a thrombosis in the making so it was a great relief told be told that it was something else, painful as it was!!! Now after 5 days of anitbiotics, anti-inflammatories and what I am sure were treble strength painkillers (no brain working !!), I feel just about back to normal and I got the all clear on Friday to make my trip to the UK !!!

The other part of the treatment was that my walking was reduced to 1 km a day which actually was quite difficult to do , the foot of my bed raised up on blocks and a 10 minutes 'feet up' rest in every hour during the day - not easy!!!!

No sewing or photos today unfortunately, but.....every cloud has a silver lining and today my good news is that there is just 48 hours to go and then I will have 'naked legs' again !!!!!!!
