Comfort for the unwell

April 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Its 8 days since Tina has been in hospital. During this time she's had many tests the last one yesterday, a Barium Meal. We haven't had any comment on this one yet. The plan is, as I understand it to build up her strength so that they can operate on the stricture in and around her colon. She's been fortunate to have lots of visitors and phone calls - thank you everybody this has helped keep her spirits up. She's missing her dog Sheeba and its mutual the mutt spends all day looking out of the window onto the front of the house Except of course when food is in the offing or a walk.

Yesterday Tina's discovered that her dietitian has German Shepherds and so the order of the day was for pictures of Sheeba. I thought this one had the right degree of cute and sure enough it now has pride of place on her bedside table.

With the drive to Bega taking about 2 hours return there hasn't been much opportunity for photography. Though last Tuesday night I was invited to Narooma Camera Club to give a talk on macro photography. This was fun although I'm not sure how coherent I was. People were making supportive noises so I must have got something across.

I have been looking forward to getting the Photoshop CS5 book by Mark Galer. I placed the order from "Fishpond" on March 21. They advised a delivery of the 3rd to 10th March apparently its coming from the UK - now its the 14th and still no sign No threat there to Amazon!

I guess these notes in the blog are likely to be a bit intermittent until the health issues are resolved, so my apologies for this.
