I am tired

P1040118Miss Cat and I are resting, or at least I am!

A troublesome foot has been very painful for a long time, and pain is taking its toll.
I have been on a waiting list for surgery since January, and it is my turn in 2 weeks from today!
Waiting for a date and pain are taking its toll, to be honest.

In the process my hospital files, x-rays and name on the waiting list got lost somewhere in the system, but all is in order now, finally.
Impressed ? Me not so much.............

P1040130My on-going projects have mostly come to a halt. I am enjoying my hexagons, but not at full speed.

P1040135My 9 patches have been badly neglected,

P1040136but I am doing some stitchery,

P1040138if not on these blocks though......

P1040141

These projects are neglected too, in case you wondered......

It will be a hand sewing summer, so all that can be done by hand will be taken care of :-)

I did not feel like telling you much about the upcoming surgery before I had a date.
Whining would not make it a tad better in the long run!

Eg er så glad på dine vegne at du omsider har fått ein dato. Det er slitsomt å ikkje vite, det veit eg noko om og... og du er ein meister i å ikkje klage, ja. Kjekt å sjå eit innlegg frå deg igjen. Ønskjer deg lukke til!

Sorry to hear about your foot. No wonder you are tired. There is nothing like pain to wear down the spirit. Good luck with the op :)
Enjoy your handwork when you feel up to it... your work is beautiful.
Miss Cat is so cute... I'm sending her a tummy tickle too!

det kan ikke være greit å leve med smerter over lengre tid, lykke til med operasjon!

Yvette said...

Foot pain is horrible!! I am so glad it will finally be taken care of for you. It looks like you will have plenty of lovely stitcheries to keep you busy while you re-cooperate.

Forgive me, but since there's no search function on your blog, I can't find out or remember what happened to your foot. Did you fall? I may have a vague memory of that. I hope the surgery goes well. I'm sorry you're in pain. That certainly can be very tiring.

Pam said...

So pleased you have a date Hanne, may the surgery go very smoothly

Marit said...

Lykke til med operasjonen Hanne;) Sender positive tanker;)

Hi Haane, I am 7 weeks post op from ankle surgery (the 2nd op for the same problem. This has gone on for 6 years so I fully understand your pain. I hope all goes well for you.
What helped me survive the last few weeks has been the fact that I planned a whole pile of hand work for me to do while clunking around on crutches, oh and some chocolate to nibble on from time to time ; ))
hugs

wishing you well and hoping that the surgery leads to a painless recovery. Hope quilting will be on the agenda soon. Awesome stitcheries!

LuAnn said...

Hi Hanne Sorry to hear you are having such pain. I hope that the surgery will be soon and that you will have some relief. I think resting with some hand sewing when you feel up to it will make for a nice summer. Take care.

Venting er en egen pine :-( Så bra at du nå har en dato å planlegge utifra. Jeg håper operasjonen ordner opp i smertene. Men det ser ut som du har nok å holde fingrene igang med framover. Miss Cat er ordentlig søt!

Katie said...

Best wishes being sent your way. It will be over soon! :-)

Gudveig said...

Lykke til med operasjonen og ha riktig god bedring! Godt du har mye håndarbeid å hygge deg med, så blir ikke tiden så lang før du er på beina igjen.

Jeanne said...

Hanne, I pray the surgery will give you relief from the pain. Those projects are too pretty to sit, so recover quickly. Love, love the pic of Miss Cat on the quilt!

Sylvan Woman said...

Your stitchery and blocks are lovely as usual. I hope the doctors can make your foot all lovely and new.

I wish you all the best!
Cathy

Barbara said...

Best wishes for your surgery! I cross my fingers for a quick recovery of your feet! It's always inspiring to read your blog, so I am looking forward to your new posts!

Gosj, for en deilig katt du har. Utrolig lekre farger. Jeg ser du er aktiv på nål og tråd-siden, skal bli moro å se det ferdig.
