When they stitched my they used self dissolving stitches, so in theory by the time the stitches start dissolving, your skin has already .. well for no better word for it .. stuck itself back together. However, in my case that was not so - picking up too many toys, wiping too many dirty bottoms, too many dirty loads of washing going in and too many loads of clean washing coming out ... ? Well .. you get the picture.
My stitches dissolved and with my active lifestyle I ended up pulling my wounds open, and which well lets just say, ended up making a big mess!
So I went in had a small repair done, but no that didn't fix it - so back in again, this time emergency surgery - came back home with nylon stitches and a tube with a bottle on the end of it, the tube sticking out the side of my chest to drain out the build up of fluids around my implants to hopefully keep my stitches dry so they would heal - boy was I not a happy camper the next few days after that one - so okay thats fine, have to deal with it best I could, still had to look after the little ones - then disaster, ripped yet another hole, which resulted in some more leaking, so in back again for a few more stitches - fine ... no more leaking, after another week had passed, went back in to have my tube that was draining the fluid out from around my breasts removed - thank god for that, as it was not much fun to have my little 1year old boy yanking at the tube trying to pull it out of me!
Today is my birthday and I went in for another check up - they removed half my stitches, and in another weeks time they will hopefully remove the other half - so whef! Drama - drama - drama, I tell you! Is it all worth it, you might ask? At my age, no probably not - however after everything I've had to go through, I dam well hope so!
So okay, on to the part that everyone popped in for a visit for -
Christmas Quaker ll by ByGone Stitches - starting to look like a real sampler now isn't it - loving every stitch.
New Start - Christmas Band Sampler by Heartstring Samplery - I wanted a more warmer feel to the fabric, so I decided to use Antique Cotton by R&R Reproductions instead of the recomended Natural.
Now, there is an award called the Liebester going around, and I have been awarded 4 times by different people over the last two weeks. Liebester? Lie - best'er? dunno - sounds fishy to me - please accept my apologies to everyone that has passed on this award to me, I know that you are all sweethearts and did so with the best of intentions - however, as they say in Chinese 我不想玩 - I don't want to play.
I have also signed up for the Scarlett Letter Year hosted by Jo and Nicola - am SO looking forward to that, will post pictures of my choices soon.
Take care everybody and hope to post again soon.
