SoArtful Challenge..Sew Pretty..

The Challenge today is all to do with sewing so this is my collage I've made this morning. All images from Imagenes Vintage with many thanks.
Thanks for looking, xx

* * * * *

I have spent so much time on the telephone, waiting ages for someone to pick up and then getting absolutely no information, I have been unbelievably frustrated.
Then at 8am. this morning I finally heard they have moved Freddie to a ward at 3am. would you believe. So I got the ball rolling instantly, organising him a bedside phone and a TV.
At last I was able to speak to him. Such a relief!

He's been having intravenous antibiotics. The swelled leg has gone down, the red shiny look has gone, so at least it looks better.
The infection stemmed from a healed ulcer on his pinkie toe, which was infected underneath and the infection has gone into the bone. So he will most probably have to have that toe amputated too. He will probably stay in hospital a few more days at least.

He feels fine in himself and sounded so pleased to be able to talk to me and he can now ring whenever he likes. My grandson Richard is going in this evening to take him a few things as he's not been able to even have a shave.
My son-in-law John and Sally are taking me to see him tomorrow.

So that's all the news I have. Thank you all so much for your wonderfully kind messages. I am so thankful to have all you lovely blogland friends. You have really lifted me up.
God bless you,
Love and Big Hugs and have a great weekend.
June xxxx
