The only way is up!

Hello everyone and I do mean all of you who are kind enough to allow me to visit and who are always so welcoming when I visit you .

Yet again I have had to just empty my inbox and that breaks my heart because I know I will have missed so many beautiful, insughtful , happy, sad, let’s face it the whole gambit of blogging. Sorry but it had to be done so I can start afresh and not drown!

because I miss you

As I said in my previous posts things here have been hard. All through December we nursed Ruby, she had cancer , firstly daily visits to the Vetinary Hospital for wound dressing, then we needed to change the dressing ourselves twice a day and sleep down stairs with her for over a month. Then just as she was improving I had a P. V.D. you can read about that here.

As if that wasn’t enough Ms Ruby collapsed in the garden one morning and could not even stand for 24hrs that was due to Vestibular Disease which meant for a few days we had to carry her out to the garden for a wee and a pooh! This lasted a few days , she is better now but still very unsteady….we call her the drunken sailor. This also meant more time sleeping downstairs with her in turns!

Finally on the 19th January I had to stop blogging because hubby and I both developed chest infections, necessitating antibiotics. Unfortunately after three days I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics and had to go to A&E. Long story short I was put on a 4 day course of high dose Prednisolone Steroids and Antihistamine tablets. The next day I was worse but by the third day things were improving.

I am now allergic to four types of antibiotics! Below my latest allergic reaction… I was covered in this!

Anyway, touch wood, fingers crossed we seem to be improving so I am tentatively back , I still have funny eyes from the P.V.D. and a cold and a wobbly dog and coughing hubby but hopefully I am back .

Oh! Just for good measure WordPress decided to suspend my blog on Friday, saying I had contravened their terms and conditions? Luckily after I appealled by three different methods I got an email saying I had a fortnight to remove all my work of ten years or lose it! I wrote again protesting my innocence finally I got another email saying they had re viewed my sight and the suspension had been lifted. Phew!! Thanks to Ritu for listening to me and helping.

So now let’s hope the only way is up!

    What the heck was up with WP, Willow? I can’t imagine you having anything on your blog to violate anything! Thank goodness you and your hubby are on the mend. Hugs and love to you! ❤️

    What on earth is up with WordPress? As if you didn’t have enough to deal with, and as if they don’t have better things to do than pick on you.

    I am glad you back, and that you, hubs and Ruby are on the mend. I hope all continues moving in the right direction. Don’t worry about what you missed, we’re just glad to see you back in the mix.

      Thank you Dan it’s been an awful time since the beginning of December and the WordPress assault was the last straw. ….so glad it was not a long protracted argument 💜

    So very happy you are back. I think WP needs a good kick in the rear. Don’t worry about anything but the wellness of your family and yourself. It is good news that you are on the mend. I missed you and i am thrilled to see your smiling face. Gentle hugs my friend.

    Wow, you’ve had a rough go of it lately! Glad things are improving!
    What was WP accusing you of? Seems very odd. Someone must have complained somewhere, but still to be so draconian. Glad you kept with it and got it fixed!
    Well, I hope the corner is turned and things do start looking up 🙂

    Glad you’re on the mend. Those rashes look horrendous, and I bet they felt worse.

    OH dear, Willow, what a dreadful time you’ve had. I am so sorry. That allergic reaction looks painful. I have had something similar but only on my neck and I’ve had to use cortisone and antihistamine. All over your body would be big amounts of no fun.
