A Little Ray of Sunshine

pincuchion 002Thankfully there is some around here. So after the first doctors diagnosis of ‘mouth ulcers’ in my mouth and throat that have arrived for no reason and have no cure, just put up with the pain for 3 weeks. (TMI yet?). Over the weekend the pain was incredible with shooting pain from my ear to throat, that no amount of pain killers could dull, aching bones and exhaustion, unable to eat for 4 days, most of Sunday I couldn’t even get out of bed. Monday Glen suggested a second opinion and a referral so back to my regular doctor. He actually felt my glands and looked in my throat with the depressor and suggested tonsillitis, which I had mentioned to the first doctor so after 2 days on antibiotics, I am feeling somewhat human even though still shabby at least the severe pain has gone, and thankfully for the first doctor and his general health I didn’t sit in pain for another 2 weeks to find out that it was a couple of days of mediation.

More good rays, looks like Glen might have a great new job – so excited. He just has to spend the next few weeks at the Bug and Pop computer appreciation course, since he completely avoids them at all costs.

pincuchion 001pincuchion 004The last ray is for the foxy pincushion goodness, It can finally make it to the post office today after being finished a couple of weeks ago. Who doesn’t need a little ray of sunshine in their lives, my swap partner here’s hoping?

Glad you're feeling a bit better. For the mouth ulcers, go to the chemist and ask for "kenalog" the best stuff ever for mouth ulcers, I get them bad quite a bit.

Love your pincushion too, your swapee will just love it!

Congratulations to Glen, I'm so glad he found something. And um, good luck teaching him the computer because when I have to engage in computer tuition with Mister Fixit it is very frustrating for both of us, and he spends an awful lot of it muttering bleeping computers under his breath

Good to hear you got a second opinion..... and that you are on the mend.
I had a car accident a few weeks ago, first doc said go homa and take some panandol. Two dauys later I was in tears barely able to walk. Benn off work for five weeks on alot of painkillers..Just goes to show you know if you ar not getting better so its always best to get a second opinion!
Pin Cushion will bring a little ray of sunshine to someone for sure!

Excellent news on all fronts (assuming we ignore any bit about the first doctor and the early bits about the throat and weekend). Here's to a sun-filled end to a week.

OH CIndy your poor thing. Glad your feeling a bit better, mouth ulcers are yuck but so is tonsilitis. ( I find gargelling salt water the best- not pleasant but effective)
Your pincushion is gorgeous and full of joy.

Hi Cindy

I received my pincushion today and just wanted to say a really really big thank you! I absolutely love it. It is so cute. Thank you so much!

It was definately well received today because I got up at 6am for uni and was greeted by grey clouds and rain so a little ray of sunshine was definately needed.

Thank you
Kat xo
