Teddy Bears' Picnic

It may be 1st September but we are having a glorious day here in London - its 22 degrees in my back garden. Not much happening in my day to day life right now - just awaiting my second injection for my neck which is due on 12th October then I have the big decision to make - do I opt for the major op or do I suffer this chronic debilitating pain for the rest of my life? Still undecided but veering toward having it at the moment! The pain is preventing me from doing any kind of work and has stopped Graham and I having our long treks in the countryside and on the hills; it stops me making as many cards as the tip of 2 of my fingers on my right hand are numb and tend to do what THEY want to do!; and the pain is of course getting me down emotionally. But since doing the online Course thru Macmillan I have learnt how to manage the pain much better and this has helped enormously.

Onto my card now ~ moan over ~ I have made this onefor 3 challenges - Pollycraft No 59 Add A Little Nature; Passion for Promarkers Teddy Bears' Picnic and Bugaboo's Dog Days of Summer. Ingredients:~

  1. Oh Sheila what a dilema for you. Have you not managed to speak to someone who has had it done? That would help to see if they think it's worked or not. I am one of these that doesn't like to have stuff done unless absolutly nessasary, but sounds like you need this doing.
    Love this wee image, how cute.
    Should be back on my faithful pc tonight...hate this laptop. Debbiexx

  3. Well, it's just as cute as can be and so sorry you are having the pain in your neck and the numbness in your fingers. I had something like that and my neck was put in a sling which hung over the door each night for 20 minutes. Fortunately it helped me and I was able to not have to have the surgery. However, i wound up with back surgery..haha I do hope you will be better soon and that the injections will help.
