I didn't think it that important. I wasn't going to go. But I'm sure glad I did.
The ultrasound revealed I had a 20cm (8 inch) ovarian tumour.
"When did that happen?" "How?"
To cut a long story short, and not to downplay a major abdominal surgery, the tumour was benign and I'm now recuperating very well. (Thanks so much for asking!) 12 days after my surgery, our first grand-baby - the beautiful, gorgeous Keiralea Anne De Bruin joined our family.
I simply cannot describe the love. I tear up when I think of her, and sometimes - even - when I'm holding her, as I kiss her and feel her baba-soft cheek skin.
The Machinist insists I am now his Lady. His Lady of Leisure. I am his 'delicate' English rose. Sometimes, he calls me "... the Ruby he found and claimed from that small country town in Africa, never to return..."
I am currently in limbo. I am seeking projects. I have plans.....
Thankyou so much for reading!
