WOYWW....

I'm determined to keep life 'normal'....well as normal as it is ever here  :-)
Firstly a quick update for all my wonderful blogging friends that have kept me going through the worst week of my life....and yes Donna the rock does crumble at times but with all the wonderful support I have I know there will be better times ahead so we just have to 'do what needs doing at the time' and 'hang in there'.  
When we called to see M last night she was still on the labour ward where they could keep a close eye on her because she had become very light sensitive and had another headache but things seemed to be settling down again and they were planning to move her back out onto the main maternity ward later....I've not heard from them this morning as yet.  They have told her that there has not been another known case like hers in the whole of the country and the only written cases they can find are American so although I have always said she was one in a million it seems now the percentage is actually much higher!  :-)
We took a 'put you up' bed in with us last night so B could be a little more comfy as the one they gave him was awful and of course he needs his sleep too......If you haven't seen the pics then scroll down for your awwwww moment.

Now as to what is on my desk today.....




This is a play mat I am making for the new babes to use while they are here at Nanny's.  I've quilted it and added little ribbon loops to attach toys to....now all I need to do is add a few more toys  :-)



These are two wonderful kits to make a Noah's Ark and an ABC Play Bag that my very special friend Jo from Jozarty sent me to make for the twinnies.  They are going to be really colourful and so much fun to make but I need to feel a little more creative first.
Thank you sooooo much Jo. x



Well folks that all from me today.....bet a few of you are surprised I'm here at all  :-)  It will take a little more time yet til I feel 'normal' [as if I ever was!] but we will get there.  Huge hugs to all that have left me comments and for those that have been praying for us...it really is working so please keep up the good work.
Hugs,
Annie x

Glad your week is looking better. Enjoy a day with Twiglet :) And the ark - so bright and cheerful. That will be fun to work on I'm sure.Wish they had an "amuse your teen" play mat, but I fear it would need an integrated games console, iPod, and fridge. Not really practical :)

Amazing where you find the energy and stamina at times like this! Lovely to read your post and know that things are getting there, even if slowly.
Love your play mat and what a great idea to have loops for the toys. So pleased you like the toy panels too.
Make sure you get some rest whilst you can,
Lots of love JoZarty x

Fantastic play mat Annie. I'm so pleased to see you here this week, didn't expect it after the nightmare you've been through. WOYWW wouldn't be the same and 'normal' is good even in short bursts - take care! Love and hugs, Di xx

Kate said...

Nice to see you and that play mat is adorable. So much more lovely to have one that nannie made!

Hi there. Bit of a flying visit from me today i'm afraid but I did want to pop on in. Thanks for sharing your creative space with us this week. I do hope things get better for your family soon and my prayers and thoughts go out to you all.

Angie said...

That play mat is so special ...and amazing work too.
Fancy M's condition being so rare ...I keep wondering what would have happened if you had not been with her as it all started to happen.
So glad you are all on the final furlong Take Care xx

Cardarian said...

I was on here last woyww and didn't realise all the dramatic events happening afterwards. It looks like things are settling down now so I hope for the best!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Macpurp said...

wishing M a speedy recovery, and hope she gets home with her babies soon. Must have been awful for you all. I remember my sister had the same condition and they delivered her ten weeks early, her son was 2lbs 4 oz and is now a strapping daddy himself, but it was a scary time for us then. love the play mat.
love Teen x

Carol said...

What a week indeed but now there is so much to look forward to with your lovely, newly increased, family.

So sorry you are having such a difficult time, as is your DD. I hope some American Dr has the answer to your DD's problem. I got a late start because I fell asleep before I could link up with Julia. I'm 42 this week!

Shoshi said...

Wow, what a week you've had, Annie! Glad M is on the mend, and I hope she makes a full recovery very speedily, so she can go home and enjoy those two gorgeous little babies. Thanks for sharing, when you must already have more than enough on your plate! I love the presents you are making for the twins, and I am sure they will grow up to love and enjoyu all your creativity.

Sunshine Girl said...

Didnt realise all this was going on glad things seem to be looking up for you during this really stressful time. Love the material for the little toys I used to love sewing those things for my boys.

lisa said...

It's so lovely to see you Annie and I'm really pleased that the news is so much better now. The photos from you last post where just breathtaking.
I shall keep everything crossed that M continues to make good progress and can get home with her gorgeous new family very very soon.
The playmat you've made is just beautiful. My MIL made one just like it 10 years ago for my then new arrival. It was very much used and loved as I'm sure yours will be.
Take care of yourself.
Hugs Lisax

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for sharing what you are making for the babis this week - love the play mat, I've read the more recent posts so know that M is continuing to improve - all good news. BTW, when I had pre-eclampsia, in Germany, all those years ago I was only told how dangerous a condition it was after the event!! I'm so glad you were with M at the crucial time. It sounds like you will have a great weekend now. Elizabeth x #73
