Hi Cc, What an adorable photo!! Happy Easter to you. Huge smile on my face, I need them all, and Lot and Lots of Chocolate!!! Storm gets Carob bunny eggs. We hide them all day, to keep him busy, LOL. Here comes Pete cotton tail, hopping down the bunny trail with loads of spring flowers, and love to you, and all here. Blessings, The stormy sunshine Xxxxx

Oh bless Storm. I bet he loves his carob eggs. Brodie is suffering with pancreatitis so he has been off his food. I have been making him scrambled eggs with salmon oil and I bought bone broth for him which he loved. He is a bit brighter today which is a huge relief. My hubby Neil had a heart attack. They found he had diseased arteries and a leaky mitral valve. He was in hospital for ten days and had four stents fitted. He has been home a week now so that is the best Easter present ever. I am glad the photo gave you a smile, we all need much more reasons to smile. Enjoy the chocolate. Much love to you and Cwtches for you and Storm xxx

Happy Easter Cecily and the family… x

Just read about your husband Neil, Cecily you are in my thoughts and wishing him a quick recovery. It must have been awful to go through. Now that he is back, enjoy the bank holiday. Thinking of you x

Thank you so much. Yes it was so stressful but he is home and that is the best gift I will ever have xx

Happy Easter to you too. X

Tick, already done the chocolate - just ask my aching bones from all the refined sugar. πŸ˜‰

Hoping you are enjoying your Easter weekend Cecily. I’m sorry to see from Lal’s response that something has happened to Neil. But it sounds like he’s on the mend and I wish him a speedy recovery. Love and hugs to you both and to dear Brodie and Dylan. πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’•πŸ£πŸ₯³πŸ‘xxxx

Neil had a heart attack and was in hospital for ten days. They fitted four stents but he has a leaky mitral valve so he is on lots of meds and starts Cardio Rehab next month . He is doing very well though and I am so grateful to still have him. Much love to you xxx

I’m so sorry to hear that Cecily. But there is so much they can do now so I hope and pray Neil will benefit from the cardiology expertise.πŸ™πŸ» My hubby had a leaky and damaged mitral valve but they were able to repair it during open-heart surgery when he was 67 (70 next month) and he is out lifting turfs and about to start spreading gravel over the drive.πŸ™„ His op fell on my birthday so he jokes I got a new man for my birthday present. πŸ˜‚ So keep positive Cecily and I’m sure he’ll find the rehab very beneficial as my hubby did too. Sending lots of love and hugs to you both. πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ’–xxxxx

Oh that’s amazing. They were fifty fifty whether you do the open heart surgery to replace the mitral valve and replace his diseased arteries but eventually felt they would do the stents to see how he goes. He is extremely breathless still which is worrying me but otherwise he is ok. They have said he needs to change his diet which I am pleased about as he ate so much fat filled rubbish and lots of meat. He has said he will try my veggie lifestyle. Fingers crossed he likes it. Xxx

My hubby was VERY breathless too until the mitral valve repair. They were able to repair it but he had to choose between a pigs valve or mechanical valve if they found they coudln’t. But it is early days yet with Neil so I’m sure they’ll be monitoring how he goes to decide if anything else is necessary. Yes, the Scottish diet is pretty heavy and fatty so hopefully he’ll now switch to your diet and like it.πŸ™πŸ» Would it be worth asking if he can have a dietician on board to keep him on the right track? You are both in my thoughts and prayers. Love to you both. πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ»xxx

Oh that is reassuring thank you. Rosemary and I have always said that if he did not walk the dogs three times a day he would not fit through the door. Pasties, pork pies, scot h eggs, packets and packets of biscuits, cream cakes, chips with everything. It got worse after his brother died in January he was comfort eating. That said it came on so quick. Neither of us realised that he had had a heart attack because the GP did not check his blood, just gave him a spray and said it will be 14 months before you see a Cardiologist. I rang a private hospital and he was seen in two days. He was amazing and sent us straight to the hospital with a list of tests and a phone call to say he had to be admitted. So far he has not even charged me for the visit. I was taking clean clothes for Neil and I heard someone calling me. It was him. He said your man needed to be here and if you had not got him to me when you did I fear he might not have made it. So shocking really. I just hope now that he is in the system he will be well monitored xxx

Thank goodness you phoned the private hospital! It was MUCH quicker here and hubby was in Glasgow for the op within 5 months of the initial referral with umpteen tests and procedures in between times. Neil will also be monitored at the Cardio rehab if it is anything like the one my hubby went to. It was run by cardio nurses who checked BP, weight, heart rate etc etc before they started each week. I wish Neil all the best of luck and do keep me posted on how he gets on. Don’t neglect yourself either Cecily. Take care both of you. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ’•xxxx

You are so kind thank you. I told him about your hubby and it has given him hope xxx

I’m so pleased Cecily. Keep me posted with his progress. I’m away to source a new washing machine now as the old one has just packed up leaving me with a load of sopping washing.πŸ™„ Thinking of you both. Xx

Hi Cecily πŸ€—Hippy Happy Hoppiness to you both!! Am very happy to hear you got your hubby back πŸ™Œ πŸ’œπŸŒˆπŸ˜½πŸ˜½xx

Thank you so much Kat me too. Happy Easter lovely xxx

Love the photo! Hope Neil is recovering and Brodie as well. I will keep you in my thoughts.

Healing thoughts coming your way.

Thank you so much. He is doing well and it is benefiting me too as I am having to walk one of the boys with him. I have to say the pain in my knee is awful the kneecap is slipping and the leg unstable but day by day I am improving. I got to my goal of six blocks of houses and back today. Hooray!!! Xxx

Wow! That is really amazing. And I bet Brodie and Dylan are enjoying these furry family outings. It sounds all "pawsitive" - sorry, I couldn't resist.😍

Brilliant πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I think they would be happier just with their Dad going two miles three times a day but it is what it is and I am trying very hard xxx

We love the choc from the cocoa bean?🀣❀️ But forget the coca πŸƒ. Both give endorphin release.πŸ‘†πŸ€£

Bless your family and I hope you all improve and recover πŸ₯°

Thank you Lottie xx
