WOYWW........update on birthday candy

Good Morning Woywwers cant believe wednesday already i must apologise if ididnt get round you all but not had agood week.I know from experience after Crimbo usually a bit of letdown but Wow what a week i am having!Anyways if you wanna know what every one else has been upto go check out the lady herself MS Julia's blog the boss behind the nosey
Well what a week since my Birthday everything has gone mad.Yes finaly on Sunday we had some heating and hot water but wait..........only for an hour!then stopped thats all the boiler is letting us have.We have been told it's dying so a new boiler it is .Well OMG at the moment they aint cheaps!!!Running up to & not far from£3,000 which aint what you want just after crimbo!
So thats the boiler saga.
My next bit of sad news is that i have been under the consultant since i lost sight in rt eye in June if youve read my blog you will have seen i ve mentioned as had aload of tests to rule out MS.
I went on Monday for my check up .And news isnt good they have now deceided that i have to have a Flurosein Angiograpy where they inject die into my arm shows up the eye and they take series of xrays/photos,then also i have to have another Brain scan but more indepth one.To see what that brings up.They have told me after seeing 2 registras ,2 consultants (thought my lucky day) four men MWAH ...but hold off only 2 where real hunks other 2 old enough to be me dad or grandad for that matter
Anyways they have told me i am nearly blind in rt eye well i new that as havent been able to see anything but the top A on the eye test screen that was only in sept very blurred just make it out.
So im going blind and as yet they dont know what is causing it.I was lucky or not as last thursday i started with the terriffic pain in my eye which is still ongoing so glad i had while i was there .As my eye doesnt react the way it should well common sense tells you if im blind in that eye then no it wont!So im now waiting to go for these tests as usual the receptionist cant make whilst your there so will post out.
So been on bit downer they gave me medication but cant take them i did yesterday for first does violently sick isnt the word way to loose few pounds but not the nicest of ways!
So girlies havent celebrated me birthday thankyou for all the lovely cards and messages sent made my day.I will try get round you all but i not surpose to be on comp long at moment as my eye and headpain unbeleiveable .Not as happy as id like to be as being a senior nurse they say they are the worst patients as you know whats going
Anyways now your all depressed for the day after reading
Im afraid cant show you my dt cards just yet and apart from that on my desk i have more crafty goodies that i got for my birthday to show you.This was taken yesterday late afternoon just before i received another bday present late one but who cares as in it was Tim Holtz ....yeah i no but the rossette die and some ideology bits that cheered me up from a friend in scotland.But on my desk and still sat here today are birthday craft items i received yes apart from pair boots,2 handbags,fleece and money i received crafty goodies whey hey final peeps have realised and crafty items rather than sweets or smeelies!
So thats whats on my desk as yet due to my eye and my headaches havent had chance to play but the bestest thing a glue gun you dont plug in....My prayers have been answered never seen one so im thinking must be new.I use mine alot and can be apain when plugged in .So cant wait to try.Will; let you all know.
Forever friends stamps,papers ,spring ribbons and bows just adore those pale colours for spring .Making memories Jet Adore 8x8 papers that i have to say our lush!Thats as well as the bits showed you last week from dad so i have been very spoilt and why not one says .My daughter not happy as i have more birthday cards than she got so her ansewer was when you get old you get less cards?My answer just shows im not old!!!!!(not a word was uttered from her mouth thinkshe was in shock..he he)
So i shall love you and leave you will try and get to see as many as i can each day.
Have wonderful wednesday .Do hope all that who were ill with this flu bug are starting to feel better and more like themselves again!
Forgot to say my Birthday candy will be drawn tomorrow sorry should been done on 7th so pop back tomorrow see if youve been lucky!!.
Love n hugs

OMG, what a horrible week you're having! My Mom has Macular Degeneration, the dry kind that is slowly stealing her sight. I hope that they can find out what's going on with your eye. Sure hope that your week gets better!
Thinking of you,

I hope everything will get better for you soon and that all your doctors will be hunks next time, lol.

Christine said...

So sorry to hear you're having lots of problems, I do hope things take a positive turn. Lots of nice goodies on your desk, a cordless glue gun sounds really interesting, I may look into that... :-)

Minxy said...

Oh Jude, you are going through the mill, sending hugs, and a wish that the Dr's can sort you out {only the fit ones obviously}
Have fun with your new stash x

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Good grief, Jude. Can things get any worse? I suspect the medical bills piled on top of the boiler are causing some of your headaches! You sure have had the worst time this year. Glad to read you had a good birthday, though.

BTW, I lost electricity (which includes all my heat, including little space heaters) for about 18 hours yesterday. I can only sympathize with you. And hope that things turn around very, very soon.

Julye said...

Hiya, not the kind of start to a new year you or anyone would want but hopefully they will get you sorted and very soon, you'd think being a nurse they'd give you some perks and move things along with a bit more speed but well the nhs isn't the most organised is it lol. Hope you soon get to play with your new toys and at least you won't get sick from their sweetness, hope you feel better soon hugs to all Julye

Bluefairy4U said...

Morning Jude, I am so sorry you have had such a horrid week. Hope you feel better and get the outcome soon.
It's so distressing when they cannot find how it all started and why its happening. Looks like you were spoilt a little with the fabby presents. Look after ourself. Lots of love and Hugs**19**

Chrissie said...

Not a good week by any standards Jude!
The boiler replacement price sounds horrendous.
I hope that the pain in your eye abates soon and that something can be done to relieve your symptoms. A very difficult time!
Your new stash looks amazing!

Sorry to hear about your eye problems - maybe the tests will show something and they will be able to make it better! Oh you have such lovely stash! I ordered the TH rosette only to realise I can't use it with my cuttlebug as it is too long! Huh!
Lots of hugs,

weewiccababe said...

Debbi said...

Oh, Jude, I am sorry for all of your troubles...and on your birthday, too! I pray your eye will heal and that your pain will go away.
It looks as if you have received wonderful things for your birthday at least. Hope you are able to use them soon. We crafters all know how hard it is to have new goodies and no time to play!

Twiglet said...

Oh Jude - all our love and best wishes. I do hope they can sort out your problems. Meanwhile we are around if you need a good listener or two. hugs - Jo

Jazzie Casas said...

Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

Tertia said...

o my, that sounds horrible, you poor thing! Hope they figure out what is causing this real soon. Not knowing what something is, makes it so much scarier.
You have an awesome haul of birthday presents there, enjoy!
Tertia 93


Looks like lots of pretties to play with. Thanks so much for sharing!

So sorry to hear about your dreadful times. Not knowing exactly what is happening must be very frightening. Make sure you get lots of hugs - there are plenty heading your way from here. In the meantime, hope you get a chance to play a little.

Nicky said...

Wow what a week you have had - hope you get some heating sorted even in only a short term fix - prayer that you headache and the issue with you eye is resolved soon for you - but omg what a lovely lot of stash you have and a tool that I hope to buy next week a cordless glue gun - Have fun playing when your heads feeling better

I am so so sorry to hear about all your medical problems. I really hope they can help you out. And oh my goodness 3000 for boiler, wow, hope you can find a better deal. Congratulations on all the goodies, and a wireless hot glue gun, gotta find out about those, the plug in is a pain.

Ohhh Jude thats horrible news. I am absolutely dumb struck :( I hope when they do the tests they can find away to improve the outlook. I am devastated for you hun. Listen can you email me your home tel numb and i will give you a ring.
Love June xxxx

Elizabeth said...

Hello Jude, so sorry to read of your eye problem, not so good at the moment but hopefully they will find the cause of the pain and be able to give you something that doesn't make you throw up:) And as for the cost of the boiler - horrendous!!We have a gas boiler and the sensor has just gone, well, something always has to go wrong in winter does it not?, but the cost is nothing compared to your boiler replacement and a helluva lot easier to remedy. It's just as well it is not all bad stuff happening to you - your birthday pressies are lovely and, like you, I love those Spring-like colours, particularly in the ribbons. Here's hoping things start looking up for you and your get an early appointment, etc. Hugs (lots of them) Elizabeth #87

karen said...

Please do not worry about visiting my blog, just take care of yourself!

What a terrible start to the new year you've had to endure, I really hope the tests show up something and that they can then find a course of action for you. The boiler suck too, crazy expensive at a time when you could well do without it. Love your new goodies, hope you get some time to play with them and take your mind off things.

Ali said...
