Update.

It's been a rough couple of weeks or more for himself.  He's in the hospital in the city and finally seems to be making progress.  I'm not going to go into all the details, he had a double by-pass, after that his heart stopped and he had to be shocked, he was on life support for about a week but is now off it and he still has a long way to go before he can come home.  Luckily my daughter could come here to look after things which meant that I could go to the city for a week to spend time at the hospital.  His two daughters flew in, one from the States and one from Spain.   I'm hoping to get back to the city again, maybe in a week.  It's been very stressful. 

The weather has been spring like which gives me a boost.  A lot of the snow has gone but as you can see through the window, there is still a fair bit left.  Of course we can still have snow but at least there are signs of spring.






On my return home a few days ago, my daughter had bought me this sweet teddy called Grace to welcome me back.





The cats were glad to see me back I think.  Two of the darlings.....






And last, the Frog Fairy. 




You should be able to click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.  Well, that's about it for now.  Thank you all for your lovely comments on the last post.

OC, I'm so sorry that you and himself are having to go through this. I'm sending you both of you good wishes for strength to get you through this and healing wishes to himself. I send them every day.

I hope you don't get any more snow, but have an early spring. And I'm so glad that your daughter was able to cover for you for a week so you could be with himself, and glad that his daughters are with him.

Grace is so adorable! So sweet of your daughter to get her for you. I love the frog faery and the sweet kitty faces...

Blessings to all,

Victoria

I was hoping that he would be back in working order before now, but at least he is being looked after in the right place. I wish him a speedy recovery and peace for you too.

Love the Frog Fairy and Grace.
