Stargardts

Norma knew her sight was failing ever since she was ten. But what really worried her was, had she passed this fate on to her daughter? 

The day had arrived when they would get the test results. 

They’d been at the hospital two hours waiting. Finally they were called in. The doctor smiled at them both and without any preamble told them the Stargardts had been passed on.

Outside Jenny hugged Nora. “Mum you can help me through this. I have seen you cope, you have taught me so much already.” They basked in the warmth of  the sun.

This is part of the Carrot Ranch Rodeo February.

Just a quick but really heartfelt Thank You.

Hello everyone I just wanted to say hi and thank you for all the lovely messages and prayers and buck up messages you have sent I really appreciate them all.

Thank you also to my blog sis Ritu for letting you all know.

I am home safe now after a few very painful and scary days. I have to keep my arm elevated most of the time hence the snazzy blue sling .

Hubby took this shot of unawares!

I am on Mammoth amounts of heavy duty antibiotics. I am grateful to the hospital,the I.V drugs , family, friends and last but not least you wonderful people. I am also glad to have all my fingers, toes,and limbs. I will be writing a blog about how this all came about from a tiny scratch. No, not because I want to bore you all but because I think it is important we all know how these things can happen and when to react and go and get help. I believe if hubby and I had left seeking extra help (even though I had seen two doctors in the previous two days) it might of been too late. The outcome would not of been so good.

Anyway I am not myself really yet, I am still in pain and very tired so I am closing now. I don’t feel up to blogging yet so I shall just be reading and commenting, or sleeping 😴.

It really just want to say thank you all and thank you God. 💜 I hope to be back soon 💜

Thank You Friend

Our eyes met across the busy bus. Little did we know that it was just the beginning of us.

We were so young we did not know the future we had no idea of the paths we had stepped out upon.

We got off at the same stop and followed each other to the house, eye contact then smiles we had to laugh. We had we had both met our other halves . Brothers different yet the same would lead us a dance in life’s harsh game.

Through good and bad we lent support, shared the joys and comforted each other when life made us sad. Our friendship meant so much to me, sometimes  you were the only thing between insanity and me. I feel I did the same for you it was no chore I was happy to .

You have been the best friend to me always there when I have been in need of an ear to hear my woes or to share  some jokes that curl our toes. I don’t think we have had cross words , well at least none that I have heard. I know you got the hump that time I brought round the boys and you got  their Mumps I did not realize but the crime was mine!

You are a Grandma I am not but maybe one day I will  have use for  a travel cot? We can share each others joys I have seen your girl grow and you have done the same with my boys.

I just don’t know how else to say you have helped me through some of my darkest days just to know that you are near is enough to quell most fears. To know you are at the end of the phone or email is enough to make life’s horrors pale. I hope that you know that you can expect the same from me just snap your fingers and I shall be there for you ………… just try it and see.

I write these silly words for you, they are the best that I can do to say thank you to you.
