Good morning everyone.... a beautiful sunny and warm morning where I am.... which isn't at home. I am in Regina for a few weeks to care for Mom. Calgary is cold and wet, Regina is not. I lucked out I think.
For those of you wondering, Mom is doing well right now. She is feeling pretty good, napping only about an hour a day (a month or so ago she was sleeping more than she was awake every day). All of her meds are now going through her feeding tube which bypasses her stomach and goes directly to the small intestine. Adds more work for whomever is caring for her, but it appears to be helping with the nausea. She was at the cancer clinic last week so that she could get her hydromorphone dosage increased. They did that no problem... she's now at 0.6mg per hour through her pump (up from 0.5mg) It seems to have done the trick. The doctors she saw are sure that the tumour has grown in size again, which is obvious by looking at Mom's face. No idea if the 4-6 month diagnosis still stands or not..... we are approaching the 5 month mark.
But for now, she's' doing good and she's back to pain free.... that is a good thing.
I created this card while playing with the CalGals last month. I was really not in the mood to play that day so I was surprised that I created a few cards while at Shannon's.
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum
*Images: Close To My Heart From Me To You
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum
*Embellishments: Stampin' Up! ribbon (coloured with an Old Olive marker); Michael's Bridal Flowers (coloured with Stampin' Up! ink); Kaiser Rhinestones
Not sure that I like the ribbon colour.... maybe a lighter green would have worked out better.
Thanks for coming by to visit today!
