I had a heart attack last Thursday 5th January and also have urosepsis. I was very sick Thursday will fever of 41.9 degrees Celsius, shaking uncontrollably, vomiting both ends, and chills. 🤒
I was taken to ED by ambulance and was put onto strong antibiotics and fluids. Strong pain medication didn’t work, so I was pretty wiped out. Blood tests daily so I feel like a pincushion, and lots of great nurses and doctors looking after me.
Thankfully, Monday after being transferred to another hospital for an angiogram, I didn’t need to get any stents. I do however have some calcification on my arteries which they’ll monitor.
I’m on enforced rest, got my legs up so I don’t have any bleeding from my femoral artery, that they cut to do the surgery. I’m happy I’m home now after 4 days in hospital. I can’t sew for a while which sucks, but grateful to be alive.
I had huge plans to release more patterns this month but that’s on hold until I’m better.
In the meantime I’d love anyone who hasn’t already, request to join my Facebook pattern group Nancy Stroop Patterns. There’s a featured post that gives you the discount code to get a huge 40% off my PDFs everyday. It would make me so happy to get more members soon.
Starting immediately, I’m going to be altering my working hours and postage days.
Most of my days and nights I’m crocheting, knitting or sewing orders, so I’m not getting much time to add to my website.
Monday to Friday I’ll be working on orders, whether it’s crochet, knitting or sewing, during the day 8.30 am to 4.30pm.
After that is my time to spend with family, work on new projects or just rest. This includes weekends.
Due to increased fuel costs, I need to cut back how many times I post. We live nearly a 30km round trip to our closest post office. I’ll be posting Monday or Tuesday and Thursday or Friday. This will depend on if I have any completed orders to post.
Don’t forget there’s a site wide 25% off sale now on, until June 30th. (Current stock only)
I hope you understand that I’m not making much, if any, actual profit from my items as they take many hours to complete in most cases.
I am unable to do markets etc due to my health issues, so my website is my only outlet for my creations.
My website is open 24/7 so you can buy anytime.
Please continue to support my small home based business as it means so much to me.
