Another patient

Sorry for the lack of blogging yesterday - as soon as I brought the YFG home from gymnastics yesterday, she dissolved into tears at a pain in her side, and after a phone call to the experts at 111, we were dispatched to the hospital!  Five hours later, we were dismissed and sent home with instructions to monitor the pain and come back if it got worse - a couple of the nurses thought that she would be admitted and referred to the surgical team with suspected appendicitis, but on closer examination, the doctor decided that it was muscular pain.  I was very relieved.  She slept through the night, and woke up feeling much better this morning.  I awoke feeling like I could sleep another 8 hours....

This afternoon I am rebooting the washing machine at regular intervals, and cooking supper soon, whilst the FH and the girls sort out some junk stuff to take to the local car boot sale tomorrow - the YFG is definitely going with my cousin but the EFG is baby sitting tonight and may not be able to get up that early in the morning!  I am taking a service tomorrow and I have the sermon swimming around in my head, desperate for me to find a quiet hour or three to get it down on paper - I can see that that will be later on.

I hope that you are all enjoying this beautiful weather - it is so lovely here today that we are all feeling very summery and happy to be warm instead of shivering in the cold.  Even the FH is feeling a little more bounce in his step.

Hope YFG continues to recover - glad it wasn't appendicitis! It is lovely and summery here too. But I too have stuff to prepare for tomorrow morning's service.
Weekend blessings xx
