Sweet child of mine.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Hubby has had his bandages removed and now just has his sutures and stockings.Some of the sutures had to be replaced.The cuts are a lot smaller than last time he had his veins stripped but he has really bad bruising.The doctor has issued him with a 4 week sicknote.
Thanks for all your recovery wishes for him :D
Today i nearly didn`t have any photos to share as for 2 hours my camera lens refused to come out and the screen kept telling me to turn the camera off and on again.
Finally after looking online for a solution, a few firm slaps to the front of the lens and its working again.

Hi Nic,

Beautiful card, I love your colour and layout.
I hope hubby recovers quickly and with four weeks off at least he can when he is a bit better get you ready for Christmas. I am sure you can find him lots of little jobs to help you.
Sending him best wishes for a speedy recovery.
