Message from B

Hello Ladies, B’s hubby here with a message she was determined I sent to you all as she is unable to write it herself, although she is directing operations as I type, no doubt you all know her well enough to understand what I mean !!

Her shoulder and arm have not improved as we hoped and now her MS has kicked in quite rapidly over the last few days, more so than it has done in several years now. As a result she is suffering a lot of pain and immobility and her hands and legs not really functioning properly - luckily or perhaps no so for me, her vocal cords are all still functioning well !!

She has been finding typing difficult for a few days but carried on despite all the warnings from myself and medics and today has reached the point where she has no choice in the matter and her computer is going off forcibly.

She has asked that I tell everyone that although she will be missing from blogland for a week or two, she has several posts scheduled and all her DT work done and where it should be - I expect that means more to all of you than it does me.

So that’s it in a nutshell really and if you are reading this, then B’s instructions how to put this on her blog were not that bad.

Hi Brenda, I was worried that you were trying to do much while your shoulder was still sore. I'll miss your gorgeous cards every day but I'm glad that hubby has taken you in hand and made sure you don't do anything.

Please rest as much as you can. See you when you're much better. From another of your Scottish friends.

Take care,

Kat xx

Jules said...

Firsty, so sorry that things are not going too good at the moment .. .. only Brenda could be organised enough to have everything scheduled for posting for weeks in advance.

I hope that a complete rest will mean a quick recovery.

Of course anyone not fit enough to craft or blog hop is not fit to be in the kitchen or laundry area of the home .. .. so Eddy .. .. you will need to step in here too (hope you realise this LOL!!).

Secondly, well done Eddy .. .. a brilliant post .. .. thank you for letting us all know about Brenda. Please keep us up to date on her progress. She is going to be missed such a lot whilst "out of action".

Careful though Eddy .. .. you might end up getting hooked and want to start your own blog!!!

Take care of my mate and make her do as she is told!! (and look after yourself too .. lots of extra jobs could be coming your way)!!

You know where I am if I can be of any help.

Love and hugs Jules xx

Oh Brenda I am so sorry you've ended up this poorly. Please take it easy from now on and DO NOT come back until you're completely better.

mckinkle said...

Hi Brenda,
I hope this current dip in your MS is as short lived as possible as I know how debilitating it is for you. I hope you manage to find something to occupy your time and mind other than directions for your hubby!! lol!

Just think of all of the cards and projects that you will have time to plan in your head during this enforced rest period!

Its such a clever illness, it always knows to pounce given the slightest weakness in your system but I hope it soon gets it's marching orders!

I bet those pups are growing such a thing now, am looking forward to seeing them over the coming months!

Keep on smiling!
Keryn x
