Out of Hospital and Tilda with Koala

Hi my dear Followers!
Well as you can see by my heading I am out of hospital. I came home two days ago. I coped really well with the operation. I had a nerve block put in my back to ease the pain. It is something like an epedural. Apparently the pain can be very bad when they operate on your lung so I was very happy to have this. After four days they removed the drainage tube from my lung (not the best feeling but I braved the storm LOL). I don't have the results yet and am in no hurry to get them. It is a secondary cancer from the kidney cancer of last year so I have learnt to except what will be.

Yesterday I was quite ill but after getting medication from the doctor I am feeling much better today. Good enough to put a card on. I did color this one before I went in and don't tell anyone but it is just sitting on the card not stuck together. You wouldn't know though now would you?? I did make the flower some time ago. It is a native to Australia so thought it would be perfect for this card. It is called a Banksia. Very similar to a Bottlebrush..
The stamp is a special one that can be brought from Shopbron Tilda is so cute holding that Koala.
I colored it with Promarkers.

Glad to hear that you are on the road to recovery Maz. Your little image is just adorable - I'm so glad that we don't have koala's in Canada - otherwise I might just "need" another stamp.
Take care.
