Hello peeps!! I am happy to report that after 9 days grandma was released from hospital yesterday. She has a long road ahead for recovery but she is out of the hospital and is feeling better so I am ready to celebrate. Thank you so much for your e-mails and comments recently. I know many of you have been supporting me through Facebook too. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. You supported me and gave me strength to face each day.
We will be making some big changes in the family as grandma will not be driving for 6+ weeks and has plenty of appointments, OT visits, along with home care providers stopping by. She is using a walker to move about and that also means we need to change the way her furniture is laid out and remove some of her furniture too. Because she lives with us, we may also be changing our eating plans as she used to come upstairs to eat with us...so now we may be eating with her downstairs. Mum has taken on the enormous duty to look after her this coming week. Grandma requires 24/7 care, including changing her bandages (she has 59 staples in her leg right now), cooking, memory work, exercise/physio and driving her to and from appointments. Her short term memory has been greatly affected and so I am asking that if you or a loved one has gone through this and has some methods or strategies they would like to suggest I would appreciate it. She has been clinically referred to as suffering from delirium however there has been some talk of dementia. Only time will tell.
On that note, I had a recent card appear in Card Creations: Favorite Occasions, Vol. 2. If you haven't picked up this issue I highly recommend it! The cards are spectacular.
One of my fav stamp sets is Dawn McVey's Signature Greetings from PTI! I love her fun combination personal handwriting and computer font. If you didn't know I am a typography fan and fresh combos make me excited! And I seriously love the sentiment "Girly You Rock!"
Thanks for stopping by!
