Let it snow ......................................but not yet.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Hubby went to see the consultant yesterday.The results of his leg scans were that he can not have the vascular surgery done when he is awake.His veins are so bad on his right leg that they are going to have to be stripped.He had his left leg stripped in his 20`s and he needs more stripping out of that one too.
The consultant says this is the only option available as doing his veins the laser way would not work, he has also said that it should help stop him getting cellulitis as much as he has been but no guarantee`s.
Good news though is he has been offered the operation at the end of October or in November, he needs to speak to his work first though as he`s been told he will need at least 2 weeks off work.
Thanks to you all for asking about him :D

Beautiful Nic! I love the icy feel, your great ribbon, and this super sentiment - I am ready for snow now! It rarely snows here but I want it to. I hope your husband can have the surgery soon and that it goes well. My husband has major leg and feet problems - had to have part of one taken off so I know how frustrating all this can be. Hugz!!!! Hugz to hubby too!

Unknown said...

Chilly card. LOL I love the way you made the sentiment the focus of the design. Prayers for your hubby too.
