Poor Dad

Well, on the third attempt, Dad has had one of his knee joints replaced this afternoon. He had it done under epidural anaesthetic, which staggered me, as i said to him' orthopaedic surgery is like DIY SOS for the body!' It took an hour and three quarters of hammering and banging, and him awake throughout it all.

I took Mum to visit him tonight, and he was in a lot of pain, so much so that i had a sympathy type response, and nearly passed out!! Anything even remotely linked to pain seems to send my blood pressure plummeting. I had to sit on a low chair, it would have been hideously embarrassing if i had fainted!

Had a really good day at school, i really think i am starting to get on top of many of my groups at last, year 10 are still an issue, but i had some great support today from the deputy head. Can i see the light at the end of the tunnel?

Half term from Friday, so looking forward to some crafting. Spent last night making party invitations for Hannahs 17th (20 of them at the house... i must be mad!) and am going to have a go at a transparent acrylic mini album next week.

Some good old docrafts sparkly vibes for your Dad Ann...I hope he feels a lot better soon, and Im sure once he is over the op, he will have a new lease of life and all the pain will be worth it!

I cant wait to see what you do with an acrylic album Ann...I have one or three tucked away and could use some inspiration!
