Of Orchids and Other Things.....

Hello Dhaaarlings...



Things are a little out of sorts around here at the moment darlings...
Computer glitches have continued to curtail my regular blogging activities  
and aside from being on a deadline for costumes for Annie of which i am yet to take any progress photos... which is quite unlike me.... I have developed some sort of compression on my spinal chord which has managed to curtail many of my activities somewhat due to the constant pain and muscular weakness. I am awaiting some dates to have some testing done. 

My specialist wanted to admit me to a  private hospital this Monday (I only saw him last Monday) to undergo some further tests with a view to surgery in the near future.
For three nights at $1000 a night the cost was way out of my league despite having a small amount of health cover.


Instead.... I'll be taking the Empress for a review of one of her hip replacements which is starting to play up on her and causing her a lot of pain.....

It seems that pain killers are becoming a regular thing around here!!!

 I will wait to have the tests done on an outpatient basis which shouldn't take too long if my last experience of his care is any indication. Last time when i had a similar occurrence to what is happening now was over 2 years ago. Back at my last review he wanted me to go in for more surgery as there were a couple of vertebrae in my back that were likely to start causing me some trouble. It was not yet a year since the initial surgery and at the time I decided not to have it.

 I'm hoping that the process of waiting will not be too long. Last time only took about a month and I'd been fixed! or so to speak....

In the meantime here are some pics of orchids from my garden...





And a very sad "Peony Rose"



It has been in the ground for 12 years and this is the first time it has flowered! It is very sad really....

And here's an Arse or two just for good measure.....







Bottoms up Darlings...

    1. Thanks Roses, Looks like the Empress will need more tests done as one of her replacement hip joints is working itself loose, hence the increaded pain....

    1. Thank you Mitzi for the kind suggestion. However I'm having difficulty moving myself about without all the writhing and too-ing and fro-ing. But with a bit of luck it might be prescribed as part of my post op recovery program....

  7. *performs old shamanic healing dance*

    Well it worked for my ancestors before Europeeans came over here. I don't see why it shouldn't still work now!

    *resumes dancing and chanting magic spells all this dressed in nothing else but a loincloth and a big feathered bonnet*

    Take care sweetie! xoxo
    Hugs
