Mom Is Home!!

First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you who left such nice comments and offered thoughts and prayers for my mom while she was in the hospital. I can't tell you how much it means to me and I am truly blessed to have such wonderful friends!

Mom was discharged from the hospital on Saturday around noon. It's been a hectic few days since she got home. I am still staying with Mom and Dad until I am comfortable that she is able to get by without me. Her legs are very very swollen. My mom is a tiny woman and I've never seen her swell like this. The doctor finally called in a medication for her tonight to help with the water retention. She is using a nebulizer to take her breathing treatments four times a day. Her breathing is doing much better and I'm happy to report that she is not smoking! She hasn't smoked since Dec 31st.

She talks daily about how she didn't think she would live the day Dad called 911. She knows how serious it is for her to quit smoking. I pray she can do it!

I know I promised you all some creations, but honestly, I'm so tired that I have no mojo to put together any cards. I have colored a few images, but sadly, I didn't bring enough stuff with me to create cards for the images I have colored.

I am hoping to have some of my stamping buds over this weekend, if my Mom has improved enough for me to go home.

I haven't forgetten about the blog candy to celebrate my blogaversary either!

My box of Stampin Up Catalogs arrived at my house yesterday! I CANT wait to see it! My daughter is supposed to bring the catalog to work for me tomorrow and I'm dying to browse through it. ( Kristina, my daughter, works with me now)

I decided to dig up the very first card I ever made! Hey Joni.. if you are out there reading... do you remember this?? Joni is responsible for my new found obsession.
I think I've come a long way in the short year I've been stamping!

Night everyone... will talk to you soon! Thanks for visiting!
