Midweek Post - update

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to all who left well wishes. The OP went off well. The scar tissue on my eye has been removed and the left retina lasered to stop it tearing again. Afterwards I slept all morning, had lunch and coffee and was allowed to go home after the doc had checked me again and told me what they had done. Now I need to continue the treatment with drops twice a day and ointment twice a day. Next week I need to go back for a control visit. I'm happy it's over and done with. The doc said I shouldn't be doing housew***, or bending or lifting in the next few days – what a lovely man!

This is a scheduled post as I  explained yesterday, will catch up with you all later!

I have another tag for my 'add a sentiment' challenge at Tag Tuesday:

I used the same masterboard for the background, a TH paper doll and one of my painted and sewed leaves:





And some of the art installations in the Kunstpalast (Art Palace) Museum in Düsseldorf:








The Foyer of the Museum:







Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. I hope your eye surgery is a success, dear. I worry about you when I hear eye and surgery in the same sentence.

    I absolutely LOVE the art installations. They are all so unbelievable. And the stained glass windows are amazing.

    I also enjoyed the tag. I like how the boy is hanging onto the thread, too. Great job and beautifully created.

  18. It was good news to read that all had gone well for you and that the surgery was successful. I do hope you will take things easy for a while and follow the doctors instructions, especially avoiding the 'H' word for a while.
    Your art pieces looked fantastic and I did enjoy seeing the photos from the museum.
    Look after yourself Valerie.
