A Rose for Carol G

By NDODS    
Good Morning Everyone

I trust that you are all well.

Just read the new about Carol G's health, so I thought I would upload this image I captured a little while ago in order to try and uplift her spirits somewhat

I on the other hand have just woke from another uncomfortable night's sleep following my shoulder surgery of Tuesday. The surgery went very well, however on Wednesday I decided to take a little stroll with Kizmet and my Social Worker. As we came to clear the first stile in a series of about five, I fell and landed very badly on my newly operated shoulder whilst at the same time busting my ankle. The pain in turn caused me to have several seizures whilst lying in a somewhat hilarious position. The result of which ended up with a specialist Ambulance team coming to my aid before being whisked off to hospital for more blooming work.

Well as I always say there are those worse off...

Before I get any further I should really take this opportunity in thanking you all for taking the time out co comment and vote on my last upload 'Sunset' and a further mention going to: Ridgeway (Aidan), IrishKate (Kate) and LK (Lillian) for presenting me with their most appreciated User Awards.

Because I am laid up in bed dozing off in between pain killers and my regular drugs working from a laptop is somewhat more difficult that I first images, especially trying to type with one hand and Kizmet trying his best to lick my feet., I shall not be able to view and comment on as many images as I would have liked, so please forgive me for my absence.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day

Regards Nathan Grin

If Carol is able to see this shot she will appreciate it so much, as so many more of us will do so too: a beautiful rose decked out with sparkly raindrops, standing out so well against the black b/g.
Glad to hear the op. went well, Nathan, but your troubles seem to have compounded since........take care and I wish you a speedy recovery from all your ails.

Gorgeous looking Rose.

My but you really know how to do it! Can't believe you treated yourself so badly following that operation, but having the feet massaged by Kizmet sounds like a good move! Take care and hope you recover swiftly.

Good grief Nathan, you do know how to create a drama! Seriously, sorry to hear of your woes and I do hope that things get better soon,

Re the tribute to Carol, such a lovely gesture and a lovely image. Can't do something similar myself as we are in the Holiday Inn in Calais after a superb night in a brilliant restaurant where my dietary needs were no problem, having had lovely conversations with an English guy who has an old Dutch barge on the French canals and a delightful Polish couple who are struggling to understand English.

Life doesn't get much better than this which is doubly poignant as Carol is having such a bad time at the moment. Even though we can't post images, we wish her well.

Nathan. I'm sure Carol will love this post. It is a good feeling, knowing that so many around the world have posted images to help bring her some joy.
Others have kept us up-to-date on your situation and now I read it in your own words here.

The ordeal sounds quite dreadful. My deepest wishes for a full, speedy recovery and a day when you can down a pint without having to worry about it interacting with pain meds.
