Thankyou.

Thankyou all for your kind words and prayers following my FIL'S death.
The last two weeks have been very traumatic. Chris died on September 1st, the following day my daughter gave birth to our first grandaughter, weighing 6lbs. 6ozs. she is beautiful. Two days following it was FIL's funeral, a very sad day but with family and friends around there was also time to reflect on his life and the wonderful memories we all have.
The day after the funeral my husband and myself travelled south to visit my daughter, husband and baby. This was a long journey and I did not feel well, to cut a long story short our visit was curtailed after a couple of days . On returning home I visited my G.P. who immediately arranged for my admission into hospital as I had developed a breast abscess. This was aspirated last Monday night and I was given 7 units of intravenous antibiotics over the course of the next few days. Discharged home I am now on oral antibiotics and as all tests proved infection only, the site is healing and I am feeling much improved.
So I think normal posts will resume shortly.

I am SO sorry you have had to experience such a range of emotions in this short period of time. I am so grateful that you only needed antibiotics to cure the breast abscess! I hope they help you feel back to normal soon.

Congratulations on the birth of a beautiful baby granddaughter. I hope you are able to spend more time with her soon.

I will continue to say prayers for you and your family.

My goodness Zetor you have certainly been through a lot lately. I hope you can get some rest now. Please know I will be thinking about you. You and your family will remain in my prayers while you are griefing and until you are completely healed and off the ABX.
On a good note, congratulations grandma :>) Your life will be completely and forever changed now. Being a grandmother is just the best :>)

What a mix of sorrow and blessings for you! Take care of yourself, Zetor, so soon you can hold your new granddaughter again. There is something to the phrase 'the circle of life', I am finding, as I get older, that seems to apply to what's going on around you right now.
