Merry Christmas ???

Your Christmas is long gone, but
I've been nursing a severely injured hubby,
so this is the first chance I had to pop in.

So, Merry belated Christmas
to You and Yours!

and
Happy early New Year!


I wanted to say Merry Christmas on the day itself, but C had a very bad fall on an escalating ramp 2 days ago, ruptured his patellar ligament & had to have emergency knee surgery.

His mom is here & she's been nothing short of a miracle worker. C has been a sweetheart. He was in so much pain & it's been very frightening, but we had a really great surgeon who specializes in knees (with the emergency nature of his patellar rupture they had to act quickly, so he could have got the hand/wrist specialist!)

So many things went well that could have gone wrong, so though he is in a world of hurt, we are feeling very very grateful.

Chat with you soon!
:o)

P.S. Do ya want a giggle? In all this uproar,
this one decided it was time for her first very loud heat:

We haven't been able to have Miss Mouse the cat fixed, since she
has such severe allergies to medications. Thankfully she lives
on the 18th floor (far away from the boys!) LOL.

She makes the best nurse though, hey? :o)

Oh Mel - what a shame. Why do these things always happen at Christmas but as you say - a good job that he was in safe hands and his Mom has been such a help. Hope you managed to enjoy a bit of Christmas and your New Year is a peaceful one. At least Mouse has someone to snuggle up to while your hubby recovers. Take care.

oh no - thats really terrible. Hope he's soon on the mend... your time will be spent running around after him for the next few weeks then?!!! Good luck, remember to take time out for yourself or you'll start not to enjoy it. My husband has had to care for me for most of this year (2 x surgeries, and nerve damage caused by surgery number one)... i saw the importance for him to take time away from me, so i'm happy to let him out regularly LOL!!!!

Thinking of you!
