Dodgy hip update

Well it is official I do have a dodgy hip - Chondrosarcoma to be precise. It means I have to have surgery to rmove it and they will put in a metal implant to replace the bit they remove. It is a bit like having a hip replacement - I am going bionic!
It is a relief to have a diagnosis and now I have almost ready for anything that is thrown at me! Having 3 monster aliens to make has been a welcome distraction and I was cheered up no end this morning by the arrival of 1.5 kilos of bright green wool. Now I can finish Gordon and send him on his merry way.
Knowing my friends in cyber space(and not just the green wooly ones!) are looking out for me is a huge comfort - just look out for the bionic woman hopping your way!
 My little guys are featured in Cuteable too! Go Aliens!


  1. Well at least you know what it is now and can get treatment! Good Luck I am sure you will be running soon.
    Love those aliens they are so brilliant!
    Take care.

  2. Sending "healing" thoughts and prayers your way for a speedy recovery!! Love these lil green guys.


  3. The green guys are TERRIFIC and I can just picture your excitement over the green wool - LOL.

    I am glad that you have a diagnosis and can start on the path to feeling more comfortable and better. When is the surgery date?

  4. I love your little sweet aliens!!! The green is a perfect color and suits them well ;)

    SHOOT about your hip.. Yes, answers are swell, but that kind of answer with the word 'surgery' with it is a tough on. Praying on you, my dear.

  5. glad your hip is replacable! good luck with the aliens. love, riet:)

  6. I absolutely LOVE your aliens, they have made me smile!
    Sorry to hear about your hip, but glad it is something that can be put right for you.

    Sending best wishes

  7. LOVE LOVE LOVE your aliens...and HOW EXCITING that they'll be on display in NY!

    If I could get there to take a pic with them, I would :)

    Keep us posted about the hip. I'll keep you in my prayers.
