Get Well Soon....

Look at this super cute card I received in my mail box. Agnes from my EAC team sent it too me. LOVE IT!!!
Thank you Agnes it made my day!! I love the cute round shape. I'm going to have to hunt down that die so I can try it. The little CC Designs image is perfect for a get well card. As I look around my scrap room I can see I don't have many of those kind of images. I need to get some!!
I went for my MRI yesterday. My husband could tell I was feeling much improved because I threw myself on the couch with "Why do I need to have this done" and "Why can't I have breakfast" "This is all so ridiculous I don't have time for this" He just smiled and said because the doctor said so. Now lets go! Poor Hubby!! Hopefully that will be the end to the tests for a while.

I also felt so good I did up a 3 cards last night for up coming challenges.. I feel so happy about it. My poor craft room was feeling needy and I was feeling lost.. Hope your all having a fabulous day!!

No Poking-

Well I made it though yesterdays procedure. I only had to have a CT Scan no drainage tube. The spot had gotten bigger and the doctor didn't see any reason to make it worse. They used die this time and found a total of 10 nodules growing in my liver. All caused by the use of birth control pills. So no more of those. He said that they would heal them self over time. The one had just gotten an infection and caused the problem. My side still hurts, but not like before. I'm still being good and laying on the couch mostly other wise it starts to ache. The doctors office is suppose to call today and let me know if I need to continue on my antibiotics and the next step. So all is on the road to recovery!! YIPPIE!! :)

Procedure Day....

Well it's that time procedure day... Hopefully it just the CT scan and not the drainage tube insertion. My side is finally starting to feel better from Wednesdays procedure. I don't make a very good patient. I got up yesterday (day 8) just knew I'd be back to normal.. Yeah right! Got up ate breakfast because of my upset stomach and went back to sleep until noon. I didn't know you could feel this tired.  Totally sucks!! I'm ready to get back to normal I have work to do and cards to make.... :)

I'm Out....

I finally got to leave the hospital today. Evidentally I have a liver abscess.  So with the infection I having going on I have no energy at all. Just wanted to check in and let you know I'm now home and laying on the couch. I have to return to the hospital Monday for another CT scan and hopefully the abscess has shrunk other wise I will have to have a tube placed to drain it and go from there.


P.S. Thanks everyone for the well wishes and prayers. I had a little burst of energy and thought I'd check my comments. My energy won't last long enough to post to everyone so THANK YOU Everyone!!! Made me feel a bunch better!!!

I thought I'd get to go home today and wait for wednesday to get here. But I ended up with a fever and I'm stuck at the hospital. I'd kill for some water...:) Thanks everyone for your prayers. I'm going back to sleep now. I didn't know anyone could sleep this much.
