*What I meant to share yesterday...and an update on me!* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all.....

Thanks sooooo much for the good thoughts and prayers yesterday... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  I read a LOT on gall bladder attacks yesterday online when I got home from the hospital...and most said that they last about a FEW hours... *sigh*... my body didn't get that memo... lol... My attack started around 11AM on Thursday while I was at work...and didn't end till about 2PM yesterday afternoon! :(  I have an appointment scheduled with the surgeon on the 22nd of this month...and I HOPE he gets me scheduled for surgery SOON after that... cuz I don't think I can handle another attack like that... seriously HORRIBLE!! I have given BIRTH...and this pain was WORSE!!! :(  Soooo thanks again for the love... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Here is the mini album that I created with Pink Paislee goodies that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com! :):):):):):):) This was a Valentine present from Brookie to Daddy...as you will see...she literally had a HAND in making this!! LOL! :):):):):):):):) For the chipboard I painted it with a Rose paint and while it was still wet.. I misted it with YELLOW glimmer mist... I really love the effect it gave my mini! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)





And here are the 3 cards that were shared yesterday on Artful Delight's blog! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)




Thanks soooooooo much for stopping by... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  12. Sweet projects! Best of luck with the gall bladder! I've had that procedure--only I was too stubborn to go to the doctor for a while--it's easy to think you are a hypochondriac when you have lupus (I'm talking about ME here)! Glad you went to the doctor right away!!!!!

  22. Hi Julie
    I am so sorry to hear you have gallstones. I totally know that pain, it is absolutely horrible!!! I had 2 attacks and then I had mine out right after I had my daughter and I agree, it is the worst pain i ever felt and even worse than childbirth!!!
    You will be so much better once you have it out. :) Thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery!
    Crazy thing, I asked them to see what gallstones look like and they are tiny tiny like grains of sand. Amazing that something so small can cause so much pain!
    Feel better!
