Op on Friday morn, and I will freely admit that I’m getting a tad anxious.
Yes, I know that the removal of one’s gallbladder is relatively minor as far as major surgery goes
last year the anaesthetist did a spinal because ” there’s no General that I’m prepared to use with you”
Apparently they can’t do gallbladders with a spinal
so there’s a distinct probability that I’m going to be in hospital for a few days more than the average
and did I mention that I’ve already had ‘adverse reactions’ [ to use pharmacist-speak ] to pretty much all the ‘good’ painkillers?
so yeah, I’m not really dancing on air about this one.
okay whinge over
here’s some pix of what the girls and I got up to over the weekend:
I made newborn-sized mauve pants in cotton for Nadie’s little miss, and upcycled a pair of stretch denims into ruffly jeans for Asher.
Some time was also invested in sewing up these gorgeous little Saartje’s bootees that Nadie made for the Rav cough mutter lympics.
meanwhile, The Girl raided my stash of flannels and brushed cotton and made some little bibs
and Nat made a head start on the seasonal decorating with these Christmas stockings:
Sesame Street Christmas fabric !!
Even Bear did his bit by making sure that no fabric projects made a break for freedom
and, as you can see, Bear is now all packed and ready for a farmstay holiday with his extended pack at Emu Creek
