May was a mix of crochet hearts, blankets and spinal surgery.

May was a mix of crochet hearts, Yummy Yarn and co, granny square blankets and spinal surgery. This year is certainly flying by, but i am really pleased that May is over. Taking my daughter to Sydney for spinal surgery was the hardest thing i have done since becoming a parent. Handing her over to doctors and nurses to open her up, insert rods and bone grafts was frightening to say the least, especially for a person who always braces themselves for the worst. This time, i couldn’t think of ‘worst case scenario’ because that included death and paralysis.

It’s quite comical looking back to the 18th, as my hubby and i were trying to fill out her admittance forms….we could barely remember our own names. I used #craftastherapy to the extreme in the lead up to the operation and during her week long hospital stay. And the whole experience gave me a new perspective on how blessed we are to have happy and healthy children. I am thrilled to report that all went well and my daughter coped with the entire adventure like a champion. I couldn’t be any prouder.

Now, back to real life and Yummy Yarn and co. I have more patterns, craft as therapy features and fun ideas to share, so hopefully i will be more active here.

Eilish was lucky enough to get a trip home in the air ambo and transferred to a regular ambo that dropped her home. How’s that for service!

I must be getting old as i got myself some bifocals this month. It’s so refreshing to be able to see clearly again. :)
