Oh No !! Wow !! Phew !!

G'day all,

Well what a weekend I've had. The title says is all .. let me explain

Oh NO!!!
Arrived home from work Friday around 6pm, with thought of sitting down doing the usual, scotch, smoke followed up with a little computer fun... but OH NO... that just wasnt to be. I got to undress into my dressing gown (my favourite attire !!) pour myself a scotch ... then the phone rings, its Serayhas house mate saying that Serayha had hurt herself and was bleeding badly.. could I come around, I didnt ask any questions, dropped the phone, hastily redressed, grabbed bandages, gauze, antiseptic, tweezers .. as I didnt ask what had happened, I just grabbed what I thought maybe needed, jumped in the car and off I go. I arrived at Serayha's to find her laying down in the backyard, looking very pale with so much blood on the ground, my heart racing, I parted the friends that were standing around, to discover that she had stood on broken glass and had a very nasty gash under her foot. We were not able to stop the bleeding, so I wrapped it up with the dressings that I had grabbed, and rushed her off to the doctors. The doctor was concerned about the bleeding as it was very deep, thought an artery might have been severed, but luckily for her, he was able to stop the flow, stitch it all up, and send us on our way home. So she is now getting around on crutches, but doing okay. She had me take pictures of the wound, so she could see it, and post on Nans blogg, but I will spare you the gruesome pictures, but so you are able to put a face to the name here is a pic of my "baby girl". Serayha is pronounced " Sir - ray - ha". Serayha on the left, her mate Sammy on the right.


WOW!!!

Saturday, Jo and the kids arrive for an overnight stay on there way back home from visiting with mum. I forget how full on having three young kids around can be .. it was like being hit with a hurricane. We had a great time, I got to spoil the the little ones, got lots of kisses and cuddles in. After we settled the kids down for the night, Jo, Ian & myself got to have a few drinks catch up on all the happenings, my neighbour Maree come over, so she joined in with us, we finished the night around 2.30am, early by our standards, but with the thoughts of the little ones waking up around 7.30am, we played it safe !! Naturally, when the kids did wake up, it was upstairs to Aunty Carol with requests for chocolate followed by breakfast!!!

PHEW !!!

Its now Sunday arvo, Jo and the kids have just left - peace & normality rein again !!! I went around to check up on Serayha, cleaned & redressed the wounds made sure everything was okay, then back home. I'm looking forward to vegging infront of the TV tonight and relaxing, before heading off to work again tomorrow. PHEW !!!!

Hope you all a great weekend,

Cazz

xxooxx

Hi,

I too hope Serayha is okay, and heals quickly! Boy what a scare you had! Phew is right!

Little ones are fun but in small numbers.

I hope you get some rest in, as it sounds like maybe in need of it by now.

Talk about a relaxation generator! "with thought of sitting down doing the usual, scotch, smoke followed up with a little computer fun... ". You may be on to something here!

You have had a busy weekend. Feet are supposed to heal quickly if one's circulation is good (so I think I heard). Son, Tim, did that at work when he was a teenager. It sure cramped his style for a bit.
You may know, I'm baching (as in bachelor) so free this weekend until Tuesday night. My feet will go up as soon as I catch up on blogging.

Don't you just love weekends like these? lol I'm glad to hear that Serayha will be ok...sounds like a nasty wound!!What a lovely name, by the way...from what nationality would that name come from? We tend to forget how busy 3 children can be...chocolate before breakfast...sounds good to me! lol Hope you do get your nice relaxing evening now:-)

I'm glad everything is okay with Serayha. I take it you're a nurse?

Thanks so much for visiting my page today. :)

Hi Jan ~ Thanks for your comments, glad you enjoyed the jokes. I liked the Oops joke too, but can relate to it. When I had a mastectomy 27 years ago, they marked a X on the WRONG breast with a marker pen. Oops. Take care, Love, Merle.

Jannette,

Your (combined efforts)site looks great. Sounds like a crazy/happening life in your small country town. Love the aussie humor. (Sometimes I still don't get it but I am getting better with time/experience). Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Cheers
