Taking a (short) break

I used this picture (sent by a friend) to accompany a statement ... which is that I am once again having to dash to and from the hospital where Joe is currently residing. I don't know how long he will be in there or what, if anything, will be done in the way of medical attention. We only went for an appointment with the consultant and he ended up being taken to another hospital. The consultants there are as mystified as they are at the local place as to the cause of his current problem.

This means that for the moment I haven't the heart to dream up new stuff for the blog but I will try and visit all my blogging friends as a means of light relief. Please keep Joe in your prayers. I love you all xx


  1. Oh Valerie I'm so sorry to hear this, I will be praying and sending Reiki to both Joe and you m'dear. Make sure you rest inbetween hospital visits so you don't end up in hospital yourself. I hope they get to the root of Joe's problem. xx

  2. hugs.

    will add on the prayers. i am so sorry val.

  3. I'm so sorry to read this, Valerie. You do what you need to do for you and your hubby. Please, please, please take care of you.
    Know that folks are out here thinking about you and praying for the both of you. I'll hope the mystery gets solved and they're about to treat the problem.
    *hugs and prayers*

  4. That puppy/kitten photo made me smile this morning. Valerie, you and Joe both will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there!

  5. Valerie, dear lady, just know that I am sharing MUCH prayer and Reiki with you and Joe at this time.

    And please know that you are so LOVED by MANY.
