Poor Bernie

Good afternoon everyone and sorry folks no card, just a very quick post to let you know things might be a bit quiet here for a day or two as Bernie and I are both a bit under the weather.
For those of you who remember my jaw problems a couple of months ago, well it's all flared up again, I have a raging infection that antibiotics aren't touching (benefits of MS and diabetes) so the delayed surgery is happening on Thursday. I might get a surprise and feel up to crafting quicker than I think in which case I will be up and blogging a.s.a.p.

And poor Bernie had to have emergency surgery last evening for bloat/twisted gut something St Bernard's are prone to. Although the surgery went OK, he then got a heart problem which was probably associated with the anesthetic and had to be transferred to a specialist vet. At the moment he is holding his own, so we have everything crossed for him. I will post any updates as available.
