Commissioned Cards, and Update on hospital appointment

Another dull day here in Somerset, we had some sunshine yesterday but today we are back the dull cloudy day and cold. The air seems to have a cold bite in it.
Today these are two cards that were commissioned to make, they have tatted butterflies on them, this first card has three butterflies in no 60 white thread, I sewed then onto blue card added beads on the antennas and mounted on silver card and finished off with silver peel offs.

This card has one butterfly on again sewn onto blue card and mounted onto silver card, I added white beads in the middle and on the top of the antennas. Again I finished it off with silver peel offs. Both were for the same person.
Yesterday I went to the Royal United Hospital in Bath, I saw the surgeon who is going to operate on my gall bladder, he said 6 weeks I was sent down to the pre-op assessment unit, the nurse said it would be 12 weeks, well whenever it is they are finally going to do something and hopefully it will be 6 weeks rather than waiting for 12 weeks. Knowing my luck at the moment it will be the longest time. I cant fly for six weeks after the op but we have a holiday booked to Italy at the beginning of July I worked it out that at 12 weeks it will leave me 5 and half weeks well I shall risk it, whats half a week. I feel a lot better now they have finally said they are going to do something and I will be rid of pain. Keeping to a no fat or low fat diet has been hard, I was told it would help with the pain that I am still in and not able to lay down so I sit up to sleep, I will be so pleased when its over and done with.
Enough of me.
I hope you are keeping well, and life with you is fine, until we meet up again in blog land take care.
