I seem to have developed a habit of knocking on the pearly gates.
Had I been a Victorian heroine of old, I would simply have fainted
at the sight of blood and that would have been that.
Your's truly though, when faced with a spurting vein, grabbed
anything for a pad, strapped it with an elastic bandage and, since
there was no-one else around, drove myself into the nearest hospital.
Exactly a month later, with nasty germs colonizing my man-made
as well as other heat valves, I have just today been given home
detention with daily anti-biotic infusions by a visiting nurse for at
least three more weeks.
To all of my staunch friends and followers who have sent me love and
support, you cannot imagine how much your caring has meant to me
and how much your healing thoughts have helped to bring me back
again. I carry you all in my heart and only wish I could give you all
Below is proof that every cloud has a silver lining!
Life is so fragile, live it as though there were no tomorrow!
