Dragons Progress (and more health updates)

Well... the good news on the health front is I am back at work.
The bad news is that I have a few funky side effects from the meds. But we are working through them.
Also being on a vegetarian diet is hard and kinda sucks. We are slowly adding meat back into my diet, but fatty things have to remain gone indefinitely as well as coffee and coke. :(
But I'm not dead yet, so we'll keep on trucking. lol.

In good news... I worked on some Dragons. I am determined to finish this page (which had a goal of end of Feb, but then I got hosptalized). So I am not working on anything else until I get this page done! Should be end of the week I hope!

Excuse my slight bit of laziness for not taking it off the scroll rods but time is precious right now with meds, new food and being more tired than ever. So I just took a pic of the current page top.


As you can see I am very close. Maybe even tonight! But probably late this week.

I am very sorry I have not been getting around to comment on everyone's blogs. I am going to try and get around this week. However I am a bit overwhelmed to try and catch up from four weeks! So forgive me if I only comment on more recent posts (like the last week or so).
As usual thank you all for your lovely comments and well wishes. I appreciate them all so much. We are managing. There is still a long road to go but at least I am not in the hospital anymore.

Nice progress on Dragons!

Don't worry about catching up on past blogs...I'm sure everyone understands

Good luck with the diet, no coffee would kill me.

Dragons looks great. I can only imagine going vegan. I am such a meat and potato gal!

Nice stitching, Mel.

Bummer about the med side effects and the sucky diet. I know you'll get it figured out. :)

I am glad you feel a little better now and hope the side effects of the meds will be less soon. The diet seems very hard to me, but if it works it is worth the effort.
Your dragons look great.

Glad you're feeling better and working out the kinks. Nice progress on your stitching!

Carissa said...

Mel, I think you're doing amazingly well considering how ill you've been. Not laziness at all about the scroll rods! Bit by bit you're getting a lot done!

Hope you continue to get better and the side effects soon go away.

Emily said...

Looking goo, I can see a dragon wing. Just try to get better and get your new routine going.

TammyK said...

Wow, you've really made progress on the dragon. Good to hear you're feeling well again.

Lyn said...

You have made great progress on the dragon. Keep getting better! Change of diets can be the pits, but it will all work out in the end.

Kathy said...

Don't worry about commenting just concentrate on getting better and making the adjustments you need too. Those alone can be overwhelming. :(
I'm glad to hear that you are doing better and back to work but take it slow and rebuild your strength. If you push too hard and over do it you could run your immune system down and get something else.

Take care and keep stitching.

Good progress!

A new diet is always difficult, I'm on a low salt diet for my pregnancy. I hope you'll recover soon.

I hope you continue to improve, and that your new diet agrees with you. If giving up fatty things helps you feel better it will be worth it. Great stitching!

Siobhan said...

Nice progress! I hope you continue to improve. Big hugs.

Deb said...

You're making great progress!! Hope that you're feeling better soon. And it can be overwhelming keeping up with the blogs. I've been barely on the past week and I'm drowning!!!
