Well here at last is my January art journal page for Kates challenge. You all know why it's so late, but I was discharged from hospital late Friday night after pleading with the consultant to let me out for the weekend. At last I have a diagnosis and I've got Cryptogenic Organising Pneumonitis which apparently is very rare, only 0.01% of the population catching it. Caught something nasty whilst in Cuba in November and had this blasted thing ever since. However, after many tests, scans, x rays, and not having much blood left, some bright doctor at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital did a lot of research and hey presto the meds can start. On the highest dosage of steroids (which make you very hyper and have insomnia) and lots of other drugs, I'm on the road to recovery which they tell me will be 6 - 12 months. So after a total of 3 weeks in hospital I'm ready to start creating, I think????
Haven't even started on the Feb page but I have been writing in my diary every day so will soon be able to sort that out. Then need to start thinking about March. Hope I now get some inspiration back because it seems to have left me completely. Whilst I was in hospital I told everyone that I was going to sell all my crafting stuff and turn the craft room back into a bedroom. Must have been one of the days when I was hallucinating.
Anyway I would like to thank all my many friends who have been a huge support and comfort to me over the last 3 months, I am really humbled by all the good wishes I have received. I'd particularly like to thank all my friends from the Craft Den Studio for their lovely gifts and all their generosity. And Lynne,what can I say she texted every morning to cheer me up and came to see me, what a friend. Also Pat, Jill, Pat and Sandy Poppins who all took the time to visit me regularly. Can't wait to see you all again.
