From Lurline!

To all my gorgeous friends - so sorry I haven't replied to your comments on last post - we still have Ed with us!

A little brief coverage for those who care - Ed had major bowel/bladder surgery 4/5 and a post-operative heart attack while in ICU - I brought him home 13/5 - he was good, sort of, and then I rushed him to hospital 15/5 where he had another heart attack and a stroke paralysing his left side. He is still in critical heart care making a good recovery from the stroke, slowly but surely and it is day by daying it!

My 4 children are all with me and still I cannot cope - I'm exhausted and cry all the time - now please don't feel sorry for me that is not meant that way it is just telling you the change in me. One of my dearest long-time friends on earth Christine from Once Upon a Quilt .... I send you all my thanks and love - I daren't name any more friends you are all so precious - one day I will blog with happiness - I hope it is soon!
