More drama... & stitching too!

Thanks for everyone's well wishes. My tonsils are now back to normal, its my Dad that has had all the drama with his health this week...

He had a couple of funny turns last weekend and then a couple more on Monday, which resulted in him having to call an ambulance Monday night after spending 3 hours unconscious on the floor. The police also attended as the ambulance was delayed & when the paramedics arrived, they thought he may have been suffering from a series of mini-strokes. So I went over to stay with him that night & the next day he had a scheduled appointment with his renal consultant. The paramedics said that we should tell the consultant what had been happening which we did & he thought Dad may have had some 'hypo-glaucomic episodes' to do with his diabetes/blood sugar, which would result in him becoming unconscious etc. So the consultant has given him yet more medication to add to his collection & he has been referred to the TIA clinic which specialises in people that have suffered mini-strokes, just incase thats what it was. I'm more inclined to think it is connected with his blood sugar. I have told him to eat at more regular intervals, not just at meal times & also a couple of people are going to check on him every couple of days or so. Its been a pretty worrying time, but he seems to be ok now & hasn't had any more 'episodes' since.

Stitching wise, I'm afraid the blues have finally got me! I'm all blued-out. So I picked up Titania again for a while:

And then yesterday I was very naughty indeed & started another Mira! Can you guess what it is yet? ;o)

Glad you're feeling better and I hope your dad is on the mend too. It's so scary when the problem/cause is still unknown.

Titania looks great!!

I can't believe I have no idea which Mira that is!! Pretty colours though!

I'm glad you're feeling better. Is it Forest Goddess?

Ok, I looked at the site... and I'd have to guess Forest Goddess as well.

Sorry to hear about your Dad - I hope there's no more worrying episodes....

Titania looks stupendous on that fabric - I'm thinking of buying that pattern again and stitching her for a second time cos I don't like the fabric mine's on.

Hmmm...those colours look kind of familiar....looks very much like Forest Goddess unless I'm very much mistaken....
