Daughter distraction

I'm delighted to be back in my sewing room, and able to sit at my computer - we've just had a 48 hour experience that I never want to repeat.

It started with Niki having an 8 day headache, fuzzy vision and tingling fingertips - two trips to the doctors, loads of drugs and unable to get another appointment for nearly a week, then a trip to the walk-in centre who sent her to A&E.

There she was tested for stroke, aneurysm, brain pressure, and goodness knows what else, while being pumped full of pain killers and antibiotics just in case it was meningitis.  By 3am on Wednesday morning everything else prooved negative, so they had to do a lumber puncture to check it wasnt meningitis: that happened mid afternoon, and we got the results yesterday evening - not meningitis, yippee!!!! Whatever the infection was it was sorted by all the drugs, so after she had spent 12 hours pretty much flat on her back after the LP she was allowed home this morning, and we both spent today catching up on some much needed sleep!

I didn't even have time to sort out any hand sewing as I dashed off to take her to A&E, so it was especially therapeutic to get back to the Triathalon Triangles and finish pressing them today

They even look like the plan - how'd that happen?

Thanks to all my Facebook friends for the comments and messages over the last 48 hours - all much appreciated by Niki and me xx

  2. How frightening but so good to read Niki is well again. I cannot imagine having a headache for 8 days, she should have been treated so much sooner. Must have helped having Mum by here bedside too
