Hi to all my loyal Followers! After 7 days in hospital, I am home again. I wish I could say I am 100% better, but I'm not really. Still, I am better than I was when I went in, and being away from home over these past few days has been very convenient for hubbie, as he had to rip up old carpet and polish the floorboards in 2 of the rooms - so you can imagine the DUST involved!! Not great for an asthmatic to be around, plus the smell of the floor paint/polish was apparently quite strong too.
So, "God works all things together for good, for those who love the Lord etc..." so it worked out fortuetous (is that how you spell that??) that I was not home during these kind of renovations.
Lots of other things been happening too, windows being cleaned, other carpet shapooed etc., but will tell you more about it later.
Our new house is moving closer and closer to being finished, so perhaps the Builder's date of "end of March" might prove to be close to the money.
My very sad news is that my dear, beloved Dad is nearing the end of his life. He has been in end stage renal failure for the past 5 months, that we knew of, but we didnt know how long it had been going on before then. He is in hospital now, and we are hoping to have him moved to the Mary Potter Hospice area of the hospital (for palliative care) early in the week, as the specialist tells us that he does not have too much longer with us. My sister flew down from Queensland last Tuesday evening, so she has been able to spend all day with him in the hospital each day.
I was given a "leave pass" from the hospital to go and see him on Tuesday night when he first went into hospital, and then again on Thursday evening once hubbie could drive me in, but they didnt want to discharge me, as they felt I still needed to come back to the hospital after the visits to continue working on getting my own health back on track. I am glad that they did really, as even though I have left hospital, I still dont really feel great.
My Dad has been a fabulous Dad, full of cuddles and jokes, love and laughter so it is dreadfully sad to see him now, just lying in bed sleeping most of the time. He knows we love him dearly and this is a terribly sad time right now, as I am sure anyone who has been through it will understand.
So, if you dont hear from me for a while - it is just because of everything that is happening. I hope you all take a moment to give your Mum and your Dad a big hug and a kiss, and tell them how much you love them, and how much they mean to you.
Until next time.....Hugs n Blessings from Sue x
