Life took a turn none of us in my family thought would come… In March my mum got both a cerebral and a heart infarct, looking back with all the circumstances happening..happy ones and a bit of luck and a strong mother it have gone beyond good. After a week they sent her home, the medical staff amazed and they couldn’t believe the happy outcome, they didn’t think she would make it when she came in. So today we are all so grateful for having her back…up and about …almost as she was before the strokes.
Mum stayed with me for weeks getting back to health, alternating between my brother and me while they made changes to their home … so it would be easier for her. It was so great seeing her progress from day to day… from not being able to write to do crosswords easily…no balance to walk the stairs…it was amazing. Couldn’t be happier than this.
In all this I’m so grateful for my family, we stood strong and united and all gathered supporting each other…thankful for my family, and the strength we all could give.
At Easter, next accident happened..my sweet black lab Molly hurt herself on something and needed surgery… once again we were lucky that we were on our way home from Arjeplog and happily the vet was available on the way home… distances are our nemesis up here in the north of Sweden. Beware of ugly pics!
After all that it was about to move place for me …I finally found a smaller flat… and I’m so happy that the move was the easiest one could have…just next door…I could move in my socks… 😉
Mum helped me pack and it gave her practise using her hands and arms..
The move went so smooth and I am now in my new flat… have been here a month and it have been a struggle with an inflammation in my neck and a total melt down with horrible headaches day and night … stress…yes for sure! Can’t handle stress anymore so it have just been to drop everything and just be…including having to see boxes of unpacked stuff!
Did sew before the move, knowing I wouldn’t have my sewing room in order for a while… so I’m happy I managed that!
Think I had my birthday too… 😉
Started on new quilts and had the intention of making my own patterns…so that’s still to come..just need to get myself back on track…and I will… that I promise ! Temperature quilt, Do what you love, Basket blocks in a swap with Louise and my tulip quilt.
That was an update from me with what’s been happening here in Stina land… back soon and big hugs to my readers out there!
