Tuesday and life continues on. .

a long day yesterday.. leaving at 6am and home at around 9pm. many hours spent sitting and waiting. Mum came through the very well. The operation took about 5 hours and she was taken to cardiac intensive care unit, so last night I could only spend 5 mins with her, but at least I saw her after her operation. The Drs. are keeping her sedated for 12 hours and will then take her off the respirator and gradually bring her off sedation. She looked so tiny and frail in the bed. But I am so thankful that she is ok! Thankyou, for each prayer, good thought, candle and anything else that you sent to us... it was all heard and taken by the angels.

So today I am spending playing catchup - catch-up with washing, cleaning and hopefully in the afternoon, gardening. I have my late winter potato tubers to put into the ground. I want to harvest some lavender and start on my new sacred space garden, which I must tell about soon! I feel I have been away from blogging for so long but i look and it is only a few days. I have so much to tell about my garden and what is happening around me, but I haven't been able to sit and concentrate! Once I get all my planned chores and stuff over and done with today, I will sit and come visit my blogging friends. Oh and don't forget the dark of the moon... three days before the new moon and two days after... all of you who are feeling lost and lonely and not quite settled - take this time to snuggle, to rest, to nurture yourself... read Daisy's post on the moon phases.
*~* I hope your day is filled with butterflies, magick, colour & fripperies! ~*~

I've been away from blogging for a few days - I am SO SO SO glad your Mom's surgery went well. I just always felt it would! It's hard to see our parents so vulnerable.
I am also glad you,yourself, are feeling better. Things will calm down in time - doing a little each day will soon feel back in order.
Sending recovery healing thoughts for you dear Mom...before you know it they will have her up and walking.
Take care of yourself!

I'm so glad to hear that your mum came through the surgery well, I'm sure that once she is over the initial post surgery stage she will pick up very quickly. You need to rest and take care of yourself as well, these fluey viruses can leave you feeling very drained and tired.

I am chicken-mad, as you will see from my blog, I have 14 now, and could easily have more if space allowed.

small world isnt it? I spent 7 years of my childhood near the Blue Mountains!!

Hi Robyn,
I haven't been here for a few days, so I missed the earlier posts - sorry to hear you caught the dreaded lurgy going around - as if you needed any more stress at this time!
But I'm glad your Mum has come through okay. She'll be fine now.
