Looking Up

It looks like uncle will be going back to the care home soon.  The tummy infection that was sorted, the warfarin settled and he's eaten stuff.  That is a load off my mind as the bus situation has been driving me crazy.  He's still sleeping all the time, which makes me worried, but at least he's happy when he sleeps.

Of course, it is never that simple.  Almost exactly four weeks ago I had an operation to remove a rodent ulcer from my nose and to graft skin over the hole that was left.  Today I start with one of those colds.  I get them now and again.  If DH or bear are out of sorts they get tummy problems.  I get a runny nose, and when I say 'runny nose' I mean, 'a snotfest that gets through a large box of tissues in less than twelve hours'.  I have never blown my nose so carefully in my life!  It's doing okay, though, and I'll wait for the first flush of infection to go and then take anti histimines.

And in other good news, the covers I made for the sofa cushions on the back of the sofa fit.  I haven't got the fastening on, I thought I would just go for it.  When I feel ready, I'll glue on the velcro.  Until then, they're fine.  The fit is baggy, but that's better than too small and it's done.

Overall, I would say that today was pretty good.  Tomorrow I am going to rest my aching bones (feel quite poorly), knit and catch up with tv.  


  1. I hope you feel better soon! Take good care of yourself. Glad the sofa cushions are done - any chance of a picture?

  2. Glad to read that your uncle is feeling better. Sleep helps with the healing process, I've been told, so perhaps it's a good thing he's sleeping so much? Sorry you've got a cold, though, especially after your surgery. Yes, please do blow your nose very carefully. Hope you feel better, soon.

    Yay, the sofa cushion covers fit! That's great!

  3. Poor you, I'm glad things are improving with your uncle and I really hope you recover soon.
