My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

26 May 2014

On Your Special Day

Good afternoon everyone - hope you have enjoyed your Bank Holiday weekend even though in places the weather hasn't been great!?

I seem to have spent the majority of mine at the Hospital and Walk in Centre - today my morning was spent at A&E as Mark has been in severe pain with his neck and shoulder for some time, but over the weekend he was getting worse and he had a large swelling and couldn't lift his arm or move much, so off we went - 4 hours later after several x-rays and assessment he has a dislocated clavicle (collar bone) and we have an appointment on Wednesday with the Trauma Team Fracture Clinic to assess how they are going to treat it - it may be likely that he will need an operation!  We don't even know how he has done it and when - we are putting it down to his manual driving job.

There seems to be no let up at the moment, bless him, he is so fed up!

Anyway onto today's card which I made for a friend's anniversary at the beginning of May.

LOTV & Raspberry Road Heartfelt Papers
