A series of 12 images of flowers from the bouquet I bought for my husband Garrath (GarrathE) just after we found out that he had to have major surgery urgently, surgery that is now scheduled for this Saturday morning. I mentioned in my previous post that my 'attendance' here is likely to be somewhat erratic due to health issues and this is one of them since I will be on full time nurse and dog duty until his recovery. Once he is recovered I will be able to reschedule the surgery that I had to postpone because of his more urgent needs, then the roles will be reversed. Christmas, birthdays, & wedding anniversary celebrations have all had to be cancelled so I doubt if there will be much in the way of photography going on until we are both through this.

This post is a way of getting an extra good luck message out of these flowers. The photograph was taken indoors with the help of the LED panel I bought in Venice earlier this year. Fingers crossed that all goes well on Saturday and that nothing worse comes of it all.

A glorious array of beautiful flowers Lynne, I love all those bright colours. I hope Gareth's surgery is a success and he makes a full and swift recovery. My Dad has recently had major surgery and has been in and out of hospital in the last few months so i can empathise with you, all the best, Ed

a warm, wonderful series of best wishes.
I know unfortunately so well how anxious you must be, I wish Gareth the best success and you the patience and force and the ability to sleep in spite of it all.
Re arthritis I have had it myself for a long time and it is my diet that helps a lot. Makes it difficult for others sometimes because there are eggs in all sorts of things but yes, health matters so much!

I keep my fingers crossed for Garrath's surgery and then yours to be a complete success. Your health is more important than photographs and epz.
Thinking of you both.
Very best wishes

I'm sure we will all be behind you Lynne, a hard time for you both, I'm sure that all will go well. Try to take some time out to rest between being by Garrath's bedside to rest and recuperate your self. My thoughts are with you.

All the very best of luck and good wishes,
