After a few days of not posting, I decided I would let everyone know I am still alive. Barely.
I had to work at the old house all week-end. That is getting so old and I am SO READY to get a 4-sale sign on that house.
On monday I took a nasty little spill at work. I caught my foot on the file cabinet drawer and twisted my ankle. It happenned to be the ankle that I broke 8 years ago and had to have plates and pins put in it. So I hobbled down to my car and went to emergency room for a 3 hour wait. I had it x-rayed and everything looked ok. They put a gel splint on it and I kept it elevated with ice on it for 24 hours. I stayed home from work yesterday and by late afternoon was able to put more weight on it but its still pretty sore. I will return to work today.
I was lucky that it was ok.
I was also lucky last week. I won a the ATC lottery in my yahoo group. So that meant I recieved several ATCs from some of the talented ladies in my group. The card above is from a wonderful friend named Susan. Below are some more wonderful cards I recieved.
The card above is from my Sweet Mommy! Its the cutest little pocket card. The butterfly goes in the little pocket. My Mom is having a very rough time again. Her legs have been swelling for several months now. This is caused by numerous health problems. The botched back surgery which started the whole decline in her health. The surgery has caused blood clots and fluids to form. Also a arrythemia in her heart has a play in it too. She went back to the doctor yesterday and he told her she has infection in her legs now. He put her on antibiotics and told her she has to lay flat on her back with her legs elevated above her heart. Laying in that position causes more pressure on her back and she has such horrible pain. She is on an extreme dosage of lasix for fluid and high doses of blood thinner. They say she still has clots in her legs which are causing the swelling. Needless to say, she is so depressed right now. And I am so worried. She had been doing so much better and was back to doing her art again. But now this set back. Please remember her in your thoughts and prayers.
Below is a chunky book page that I did for a swap that she was trying to host. It is called "Remarkable Women". I, of course, chose Lady Bird Johnson. I am taking over the swap and will be helping her put the book together and sending it back to the artists that participated.
We have 9 artists in this swap so I had to made 9 of these pages. On the back of the card I give a little autobiography of Lady Bird.
Well I sure hope all of my wonderful blogger buds are doing ok and that your all having a wonderful summer so far. Thanks for letting me share and please remember my Mom in your prayers.
