Christmas is coming!
The Oh! Bearded One came back from hospital last Thursday. He is doing quite well, he has got better each day although he has had pain at night and we haven't had a particularly good night since he came out of hospital. That will improve, it just takes time. He is coming to terms with only having one eye, probably better than I am. We don't know yet what type of cancer cells were in the tumour, he has to wait until an appointment comes through from our local hospital which we think will be in about 3-4 weeks time.
I am having times when I am extremely sad about it. I was looking at photos last night and I got very upset looking at photos of him, things will never be quite the same again. I know we have a lot to be grateful for and there a lot of people having more problems than we are but I suppose I just haven't adjusted yet.
He went to have his other eye tested today as he now needs glasses for driving and distance. Our bank account is now a lot lighter and next month we will have to pay for prescription sunglasses as he needs to protect his eye from UV light. Up to now he has been bad at having his eyes tested but he will be having a test every year. If anyone is fair skinned, blue eyed and over fifty make sure they are having their eyes tested routinely. This tumour possibly would have been picked up much sooner.
I still have things to show you but need to take photos and I need daylight so I will try tomorrow. I'm off to finish sewing on the binding on Mum & Dad's quilt, 2 more sides to do!
