Well, finally.......................

I'm getting around to posting some more information concerning my illness, as well as a couple of cards I've completed!!!  First of all, I want you to know that I only have nine radiation treatments left to go.....turns out that I have to take 40 instead of 35.  This past Saturday night I had to go to the ER for dehydration and problems with my bowel (due to not eating properly), but I'm fine now.  This week the nurse at radiation is going to give me some fluids and nutrients via IV to help me out.  They will be doing the same thing the following week.  The problem with eating is that the radiation has temporarily killed my taste buds, making it almost impossible to eat..........even water tastes bad!  I just keep telling myself "and this too shall pass" and keep on trucking!!!  Also, my "new song" is:  "All I want for Christmas is my taste buds back"...lol!

Now onto the good stuff.  This first card is one that I made for one of the people in the radiation department.  She is a 24 year old young lady. named "Danny" and while taking care of me, her Mother become seriously ill and I thought she could use a "lift".  Inside the card reads:  "Danny, thank you for being one of my very "special angels" here on Earth!".

This second card is the birthday card that I made for my sister who is fighting breast cancer.  I will be mailing it to her and the 27th.  She is getting ready to take her fourth chemo treatment.  For this card, I cased a card that my good friend made.......I used different colors, a different sentiment and some butterflies.  You can see her card here.

I'm sorry to make this post so short, but I'm getting a bit tired and I think I'm going to go take a short nap....but I hope to be back soon.  Thank you for all of the prayers (keep them coming)  and for stopping by!!!
