News from our Bernie

I had an email from Bernie and she is just out of hospital after a bad bout of pneumonia.Various other issues are cropping up related to all the treatment she's been having and things are tough for her right now. Jim is doing everything he can for Bernie and she also says that she's still keeping her spirits up.

She sends her thanks for all your get well wishes and cards too and will be in touch once things have stabilised.

On Monday I sent Bernie flowers from all of us in the Playground, and also all her Bloggy friends - they arrived fine and she's delighted :)

Over the Blue Horizon 

Some of you may know that blue is Bernie's favourite colour - I clearly remember that was her only real request when I set her blog up :) So that 'our Jim' isn't faced with a sudden challenge to learn 'instant flower arranging', the flowers should have arrived in a vase, as shown.

A little thank you email from her today says they now know that that some of the side effects are due to vitamin deficiencies after the chemotherapy - so hopefully that can be rectified soon.

So girls, keep those prayers and positive thoughts coming - our little friend needs them more than ever right now while she gets over the aftermath of the treatments.

Love you Bernie!



  1. Di, you're the best! Thanks for the update and including all your playmates in your gift.

  2. I will be thinking of Bernie and sending my positive thoughts her way. xx Maggie

  3. Dio you are such a kind soul. Thank you for sending flowers to Bernie.
    I hope the vitamim deficencies get sorted...that can make a world of difference.

    When DH had cancer, he had low posassium and others...he was passing out and going into seizures...they finally figured out what was lacking and one shot stabilized him!
    Hope Bernie is as easily sorted out...a cancer patient needs all their strength for their personal battle.
