A little bit of this and a little bit of that …

A late birthday card made by my daughter Nicky.  Didn’t she make a beautiful job of it?  All hand-cut as she doesn’t own any punches etc.

The following is the birthday card I made for my hubby last week.  Hope you enjoyed your birthday Nev!

IMG_1701 Saturday 5th March was the Stampin’ Up! Auckland Regionals.  The day went very quickly and we made some lovely make & takes with the free stamp set from the new Autumn/Winter mini that will be coming out on the 1st April.  Can’t show you what we made just yet, but will tell you that there are some great products coming!

This coming Thursday I have an appointment with the Haematology specialist but was pre-warned when I went to Oncology a few days ago about what is in store for me over the coming days/weeks.  I have already had an x-ray and will also need to have another CT scan, blood works, and they are insistent that it is vitally necessary for me to have a bone marrow biopsy (scary!!!) as the results of all these will determine what treatment I will have to undergo.  This is because of the new cancer they found on the rib they removed before Christmas which could have evolved into Multiple Myeloma which would involve having chemotherapy but if it hasn’t spread from the rib then they will do radiation on that area.  At the same time they are still trying to find out why my CA125 ovarian blood cancer levels are still up in the 400s and have to decide what to do about that.  It is all too much to get my head around so am trying to forget it is happening.  I felt so positive when I went to Oncology that my levels would have returned to normal and that the rib op would have solved the other problem but it was not to be.  Will keep you all informed as I find out more … it all seems to take up so much time.

Big hugs and lots of prayers going your way, Judy. It has been so nice to see you two weekends in a row. I'm sorry you have to go through all these tests and procedures, but I'm sure they wouldn't have asked for them if they weren't necessary. Keep us posted, chick, and let us know if there's anything we can do. Love ya! :-)
