Off to battle again!!!

Oh Boo!!! Just as everything seemed to be going so well (Just got married - 20th Dec, been away on honeymoon, celebrated New Year with good friends, enjoying being an aunty to my sisters new baby daughter, been out to celebrate my bridesmaids birthday AND just starting to get our home extension plans started.....and I've got poorly again.

I'm now up at the Brompton for 2 weeks of IV's, 90 miles away from most of my friends and family aaarrrggghhhh!!! Oh well, thank god for technology. Aparently my small airways are blocking up due to my lungs allergic reaction to a "fungal spore" that occurs naturally in the air called Aspergillus.

On top of that, my veins are really not co-operating and I now have several large purple brusies on each arm from docs and phlebotomists trying to canulate and take bloods from me. Think it could be time for a port.

So, as I now have a few days of doing nothing but putting my feet up, enjoy the delights of daytime TV (Judge Judy, Jeremy Kyle!!!) and having rather large amounts of antibiotics put through my pathetic veins every 6 hours, I'm gonna start designing my kitchen. Any suggestions on good places to look would be much appreciated.

Thank you also for those lovely comments from my fellow bloggers about my jewellery. I love working with silver clay and find it very relaxing. If anyone is thinking of working with it and needs any advise or help, please feel free to contact me.

  1. Hi Vix

    Although I have only just started following your blog, I felt I had to respond to your last post. Poor you to be laid up in hospital - what rotten luck. Are you able to make any jewellery in your bed - play around with beads and wire?

    Best wishes, Kristin :)

  2. Sorry to hear you're stuck in hospital. Do hope it's for as short a time as possible and does you some good long-term.

  3. Sorry to hear you are poorly, and that your veins are suffering. That is really rough, worse still that you're company is Kyle et al!
