Aren't these flowers beautiful? They are from Amy, Ben & Cooper.
Last Sunday I spent the day with Pat at home, he wasn't feeling all that good and so I gave Mass a miss and spent the day with him.
Sewing and making a mess in my sewing room This was to be tidied up that night.
My sewing room this morning.
Sunday evening I called an ambulance, not for Pat but for myself, I had chest pains.
After a 3 day stay with vampires sneaking in at night and through out the day every 4 or 6 hours. ECG tests and on my finally day a stress test I was given the diagnosis of angina. Due to me never even trying to smoke, I was told I would have been in the hospital 10 years earlier. The heart specialist looked at the family history and was told I coped a raw deal.
I have already started to tweak my diet even more.....no more bacon fat, love the pork fat on a grilled loin chop lamb or pork. Diet/caffeine coke is not being kept in the house now either. I can drink it but only socially. Hey do I have a social life???? Gee have to think about this. Water is my new vice:)
I'm on 4 tablets a day now for my heart and I have to carry a spray with me at all times for angina attacks. Black and blue on my arms and tummy from needles. Now I know how my stitchery feels.
Since my release mid last week I have resting and coming to terms with my own mortality. Been so busy caring for Pat I haven't paid 100% to myself.
Hearing yesterday at Mass one of the parishioners had died last week. This made me so sad and at the same time I thought "this could have been me". When I think of something I am giving up by my choice, I see my beautiful "Super Cooper" and this gives me the strength to say no. I have so many things I want to teach that little boy and so much love for my family, not to give anything less than 110% in doing the right thing.
While in hospital my win from Clare's Craftroom arrived and Patrick was happy to see my excitement as I opened my prize. Couldn't have come at a better time.
I love the Tilda range of books and thank you so much Clare for my win. If you haven't checked out her blog, go and have a look.
Also Clare sent me these two cute fabrics. Love them and HUGGLES to you Clare.
So there you have it, my week that was. Oh yeah been playing a lot of a game on face book too.
This afternoon, I am going to tidy my sewing room up and tomorrow for the first time in 4 weeks I'm off to sewing with the girls. Due to heat and health reasons I haven't been. Hope I sleep tonight.
