a momentary lapse of reason

Hello all! I hope this finds you well. Sorry that I haven't been around much this week. I'm afraid it's been one of those weeks where I find myself wanting to crawl in a hole and pull it in behind me! I know I mentioned several times that I've been sick. Well I finally was able to go to the doctor Monday. He gave me a nice pile of prescriptions. Seems he agrees with me that I probably have another occurance of GERD, but I also have some kind of flu...and a UTI. I guess when it rains it pours? Not only did I come home with a big bag of medication...from stomach pills to nose spray and everything in between...but I also was ordered to a specialist. He is insisting I have an upper AND a lower GI. This requires me being put to sleep, which I find scary. On top of that he says the surgery itself has it's own risks as it can cause me to bleed (I am on blood thinners) So my mood sorta matches the blustery rainy day outside and I haven't been accomplishing much, what with being up through the nights off and on.

I have finished some more on the paisleys. Some of what I have done I'm not real crazy about. On the snowflake paisley I was trying to give it a feel of wind and swirling snow. I dont think I really pulled it off and truthfully I liked it better before I added the dark blues in the background. D likes it a lot though so I'm leaving it alone. I had hoped to start on my batik this week but didn't really have the energy.

  1. So sorry to hear that you've been so much "under the weather". I hope you're well soon.

    Your paisley's are wonderful!

  2. Poor dear! Get well soon! Have you ever tried Traditional Chinese Medicine? At least as a support along with what the doctors do, it can be very helpful. If you can reach a TCM doc in a larger town, maybe.

  3. please take it easy and get well. Embroidery is for pleasure and relaxation, not RELAPSE. x

  4. I love the work you are doing! The snowflake paisley is really beautiful. Maybe you will like it better after a rest from it. Often I hate something that I've created and put it away but the next time I look at it I love it. Crazy artistic temperament!

    Hope you are feeling better soon.
