Life happened

Some of you might be wondering what happened to my promises of keeping up with blogs and do a regular post. Well like it happens to many people life happened to me too. On Easter Day my husband was called for a kidney transplant. Although it was on the cards one is never fully prepared for these sort of things and it came as a bit of a shock. We were in Malta for the Easter Weekend and had to cut short our break and return immediately.  From then on everything happened so fast and like a dream. My husband was given a new lease of life. I truely believe that this is a miracle by God. My husband's kidney has been working only 20% since the 1st transplant and life has been quite a struggle for him. They said the 1 st kidney would last only ten years but it lasted nearly 21 years which in itself was a miracle. However for the past few years we have been living on a knife's edge expecting the kidney to give up anytime. Then the week before Easter his blood results were so bad that our doctor said he will have to put my husband on the transplant list. I was very apprehensive of going abroad with all this but we went. His name went on the list on Wednesday and he was called for the transplant on Easter Day. What a wonderful Easter  gift it has been.  He was not only called so soon but the match has been great and he is doing well so far. After waiting for 7 years for the first one this really is a miracle to get one so quickly and a perfect match at that. I will be out of action for a bit until everything settles at home. My doll has gone onto the back burner for the moment. Please know that I shall come back to visit your blogs once life settles down a bit.
Until then keep creating and enjoy your time doing all the lovely things there is to do in life.

  4. I had no idea your husband was unwell Shashi. You must have been so worried, and yet you gave no indication that anything was wrong (or if you did I missed it). Please wish your husband all the very best from me and don’t forget to look after yourself too Shashi because these things always take it out of those nearest to the person receiving treatment. Lots of love, thinking about you both. xxx

    1. Dear Barbara thank you for the kind wishes. Hubby is doing well. Never thought it would go smoothly as with him any kind of surgery has been complicated. But we are so thankful that he is doing so well. The doctors are really amazed. Still early days .we will sigh with relief when the official 6 weeks are over and the doctors say yes all is going well😀
