hello World, It's been a buzy time in our house and family recently. Mum had to go to the hospitral for pre-admission tests in preparation for a carpel tunnel op on her left hand. because Mum is on Warfarin she has to have injections of Clexane pre and post op.Not plesant. I finalised the arrangements to have 5 teeth removed on the 21st Dec and a plate made. Mum's op was on 6th Dec (we had to have her there at 6.30 am) The op went well(thank the Lord) and Mum is o.k. We arrived home from the hospital to find my grand-daughter-in-law had to be rushed to another hospital because her baby was coming 9 weeks early.Our new little great-grand-son was born that day,tiny and frail ,but healthy. He will have to stay in hosp for some weeks after his mum goes home. He is named Max. A big "Thank You" to everyone praying for Mum and Max. Max's grandmother,my daughter Therese,dropped everything,re-arranged her day and drove 2 hours to be with Max and his parents. It was a special time for them.

We are taking Mum to the hosp every second day for blood tests until her Warfarin levels are back to normal.
In spite of her hand op, Mum insisted she was up to Bingo --- soooo ---we went to Bingo and won a Christmas Ham. Mum was over the moon. What a good day.

My daughter Mary had a fall in the car park at the school where she volunteers her time, and had to have three stitches above her eye. Now she has a big dramatic Black Eye. She was shaken up but o.k. and back at school.(you can't keep a good woman down) Her teenage daughters are a bit embarrased by the whole thing.

Must go now,
Be in touch soon
