So hows things with us? Same old, same old, nothing much changes here... Esther is still our major concern , her epilepsy is no better, just trying to manage the seizure's until we see the Neurologist next week. We're hoping he can sort us out, :) What we'd really like is for him to stop Esther's meds and give her some med free time, just to see how she goes, we realise that there are obvious risks, but we're kind of rationalizing that before she started on the new improved meds back in November she hadn't had a Tonic Clonic (Grand Mal) seizure in over two years, now we are having on average 2 a week. The new improved meds were to try and improve her Myoclonic seizures, which they've not actually done either...the new meds don't seem that improved to us! It does get a bit confusing with the different types of seizures she has... different parts of the brain cause different seizures which is why its sooo hard finding the right balance and mix of meds, but we feel we've given this current set a fair go and we're ready to move on... I don't blame the doctors and consultants, I understand that with the complication of Esthers disabilities its very difficult to know what's happening..until it happens.. :) But I do expect them to listen to us and work with us to make sure Esther is the best she can be, we've always been very lucky and had good doctors that we can work with...only one was a bit of a numpty and we soon found a replacement for him! hahaha... Don't mess with the Kirby's and their Angels ... lol! So we are praying hard and keeping everything crossed for Thursday's appointment.
I also 'won' the most gorgeous teensy weensy Annie raggedy doll....
But my bestest of all 'wins' (really they were a 'buy it now' not bids) were these Valdani threads...
I have done a leeetle bit of sewing in between 'shopping'... :)
I finished a woolly cushion that I started back in February for Valentines, as usual I didn't quite finish it, its a design from an old PG book, sorry can't remember the name of hand, its a Christmassy/Winter book, anyway the original had holly leaves under the hearts but I didn't want to do holly so I left it , waiting for inspiration because it needed something, then whilst I was doing one of my PG BOM's , it came to me...viney/branchy/leaves 'things' , I'm quite pleased with how its turned out and its happily sat on top of the piano...well its actually under the bottom of an Angel at the moment...Mim has taken a liking to it and is sat on it watching a DVD, Ooh well everything I sew is made to be loved ...and squashed...lol!
Well I think that's quite enough for now, I have another package to show but blogger is getting a bit tetchy with me and I'm not sure what might happen if I try to up-load another picture, I'm surprised its allowed me to get soooo far without blipping on me...maybe it's 3rd time lucky...lol! OK I'm going to try 'publish post' now.... wish me luck ;)
