A Difficult Week
We returned home that afternoon so I could sleep as I had two night shifts to work. I didn't work the second night as I had surgery yesterday. It was a very long day but I'm thankful that it's over and I'm home again. I had an appointment with a gynaecologist last Thursday as I had an abnormally high reading of abnormal cervical cells on my last Pap smear. He did a cone biopsy and hopes that a hysterectomy won't be necessary as he thinks he was able to remove the pre-cancer cells with the extensive biospy but next week should give the answers.
I've done nothing but lie down all day as they warned me to rest up for a week as I will feel like I've been "hit by a truck". It's very unusual not to take a stitch of sewing but I'm just not up to it yet. I also want to write and share about Sharon's beautiful antique quilt but I'll wait until I feel up to it. In the meantime don't forget to have your pap smears regularly. I've never had an abnormal reading so it was a bit of a shock for the family but I'm sure all will be well.
Thanks for stopping by again and I hope to be back to normal very soon but DH has asked me to slow down with the donation quilts and rest up for a while. He took my Dad to the Dr and to do his shopping today, bless him, so I'll have to heed his suggestion too for a while.
Hugs, Jan Mac
PS The fabric I showed above is one I've been thinking of using as a border for my next applique quilt.
