woyww evening 07 03 2012

Ok I was missing in action last week - I had to rush to meet my DAD in A & E - long story cut short he is 80 and has a prostate problem. Was left in A& E from 2pm to midnight......then transferred to a ward..... who decided that was a good idea. Finally got him out on the Friday but with a catheter fitted. My Dad has never been in a hospital and did not even own a pair of PJ's so it was a mad panic trying to kit him out and worrying about wether he understood everything, and wether he had the social skills to cope in a ward full of strangers.... He managed brilliantly - now we going thru the tests period.  Bone scan yesterday.... we are waiting for the results now.    Anyhow I have been a bit busy running around doing nothing really - bit of shopping picking up stuff for my mum and dad but i did manage to get to a scrapaholix class down in Leicester on Saturday with my neice. Here are my results which I am quite pleased with. The young man is my Dad as a young boy and the other one is of my Mums mum and Dad ( my grandparents) with my auntie. My mum is one of the naughty gorls peeping thru the window.  The double page spread is of my mum and Dad , me and my brother and our dog KIM. Its not finished yet but i couldnt resist showing you. I discovered glasine paper and love it - the one we used was a Tim Holtz creation and it scrumples lovely leaving a great distressed look with not much effort.

    Your heritage layouts are lovely. The glassine flower is just wonderful!

  9. ohoo thought I'd better add the 'story' I meant was your pictures in your lovely layouts! Poor dad, mine has the same prob! Catheter, yep...for the last ten months! ( I wasn't going to mention it but they should be sorting it out in the next few weeks. Enough of that!! Thank you for your visit!

    1. omg 10 months - why do they do that ( apart from the obvious reason for passing water - why cant they do something better than a catherer) I know you dont know the answer but OMG it seems so basic. Hey ho we have to think that they know what they are doing. thanks for your comments.

  10. Hi Sharne,
    Thanks for your visit. I hope your dad is doing well. My dad had prostate cancer several years ago and had to undergo radiation. He did fine through it all. Whatever is going on with your father I hope he gets a good bill of health.

    I do love the photo of your dad - what a dapper young boy! Also love the photo where your mum is peeking out the window. It's those photos that have a little surprise in them that are really treasures! I enjoyed seeing your scrapbook pages - very nice. Also always love to see the home pets among the photos!!
