..Meet the Elephant Man ... aka Hubby .. 2017-4 -8



 ..   hubby has been having nose bleeds on and off for a few months ..  they haven't lasted long and he wasn't worried about them .....
well ... on Thursday he woke up with a bleeding nose and it wouldn't stop ..  it just keep dribbling ....   he Checked with his doctor and was told to go to hospital ....  
...there they packed his nose and then when it still didn't stop they put a balloon up his nostrel.....

 he sent me this photo ...   NO .... I didn't go with him ...he likes to do hospital things on his own ...  

so ... meet the Elephant man ....
.. his words ... not mine ... xxxxx

... he is coming home today ..    the specialist said the bleeding was happening because he had the moisture intake on his C-pap machine too dry ...   he has to increase the moisture content .. and keep the inside of his nose moist ...  
 .. so glad it wasn't a more serious problem ...  



Mum had a flu shot on Friday 31st March ..  and the needle piercing her skin caused a bleed under her skin ... similar to bruising ....   hasn't happened before ...   but Mum is on blood thinners ( so is Hubby ) ....  and sometimes these things happen ....

 Here's Mum's arm ...  
.. this was on Sat 1st April ... it has since spread up to her shoulder and down to her wrist ..... no photos because it looks horrible ....
 there's not much they can do for it , just some light pressure bandaging and a support sling ..... Mum's Warfarin was stopped for a few days and is now having it re-introduced ....
 ...poor Mum ..   ......



.. on to happier things ...   xxxxx

 our Choko vine has turned into a monster and is taking over the side of the house .....

... getting some nice chokos ..  hubby said he won't trim it or pull it off the house until it stops fruiting ...      \o/ .....

...we went to visit my friend Merle's grand -twins  the other day ...  they are gorgeous ......

.... and starting to teethe ....   what fun ..   xxxxxxx


..  I'm having a pleasant time with my Christmas decorations .....
... I figured if I made 6 a week I might have enough to give everyone on my list a set of 6 for Christmas .....   xxx   only time will tell  ...


Our weather here in Sydney Australia has finally turned into Autumn.....  it's so lovely ...  
... cool crisp mornings and warm days ...   perfect ..

I hope Spring is showing her face for everyone in the top half of the world ...    xxxxxx

 Have a great day ......    Barb ... xxxxxxxx

  1. I have nosebleeds a couple of times a year, usually hayfever related. I had one yesterday, sneezed suddenly and there it was, blood all over the table. It did stop faster than usual so that's the good part. Sorry to hear your hubby has had so much trouble, but at least the cause was found.
    I had my flu shot last Thursday and the girl who did it was very surprised that I didn't even have a pinspot of blood at the site. Your mum's arm looks awful, I hope it isn't painful.
    Your choko vine is doing very well, poor Lee up in QLD has one that isn't producing a single fruit this time.
    Merle's grandbabies are the cutest aren't they?
