I just want to
reach out to
all of you,
my wonderful friends,
Lurch, Mom and I
could feel your hugs
and support from
many miles away!
I don't know how
I would survive
without my best friends!
Thanks to you all for all your prayers and support these last couple of weeks. It has been a trying ordeal, but we all survived. Please continue your prayers for my family as both Lurch and Mom cope with their illnesses.
Mother and I spent a long day at MD Anderson. If you have been there, you know the routine. Upon your arrival, you are handed a schedule of tests and appointments for the day. Mom's appointments were in multiple buildings and on multiple floors, so we had a busy, busy day "hurrying to wait". To her disappointment, she learned that she is not a candidate for stem cell transplant at this time, but she was a trooper and continued with tests in case her status changes.
Lurch went through a series of cardiac diagnostic tests to determine if he could undergo toe surgery. After much deliberation, his doctors agreed with us that Lurch could have his surgery with a local block rather than "go under" anesthetic. Lurch is now recovering and hobbling around the house and getting waited on...again! The good news is that Lurch got good reports on his heart tests. However, he still has a way to go in his cardiac rehabilitation before he has full heart and lung function.
Did you hear that? That was a big sigh of relief coming from me! Thank you, dear friends, for helping me get through the last couple of weeks! So what can I do to return your kindness?
How about a contest with a prize? Yippee! A contest!
On Wednesday, some time during the day...unscheduled and unannounced...I will post a quick contest on Moonlight Hollow. On Thursday, I will post a quick contest on The Renaissance Chick. Yes, you can participate in both contests and win both prizes! (Watch out, girls, Trash Talk is a fierce competitor!)
What is the prize, you ask?
The prize will be a small (8x10), original fabric collage art piece made by me. I will use a photo from my personal vintage photo collection to feature on the collage or I will use an image that you email me...your choice!
Don't forget to play!
Contests will be posted unscheduled on the following days:
Wednesday, July 22...Moonlight Hollow
Thursday, July 23...The Renaissance Chick
Did I mention that the contest for Moonlight Hollow will be about Texas? Better study up, California girls!
