Update and Request For More Prayers

Still no stamping time. But, I have another update on my dad. His lymph nodes tested positive for squamous cell cancer. He will be having a PET scan on Thursday. If nothing shows up, hurrah!! If they find more cancer, he will have to undergo seven weeks of radiation. I would appreciate any prayers that his PET scan is clean. Thank you SO much..

 Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Another Update

My dad's surgery is now scheduled for Monday. My sister was able to arrange her work schedule to be there with him and stay through Tuesday. I'll be sure to let you know when we get the results.

I had a little bit of stamping time this afternoon and was able to finish up the August calendar page I was almost finished with and also got September done. Yippee! That makes me feel a little better. I'm actually caught up:) I have 29 Christmas cards done, so I have about 50 to go. Not too bad. I hope to be able to start doing some stamping again soon! Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Update On My Dad ...

Thanks to all of you for the prayers for my dad. I have a little update, but only to say that the surgery has been pushed back to maybe early next week. :( He just got back from Minneapolis this afternoon after having cataract surgery and then he had his pre-op appointment for his lymph node surgery late afternoon. But, the hospital called and said they didn't get the results from the pre-op in time and so they can't do the surgery tomorrow! That really stinks. My sister drove down to be with him and took time off of work and now it will be rescheduled. Bummer. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A Little This and That:)

I thought I'd just post a little something to let you all know I'm alive and well ... just still quite busy. When I have a little stamping time, which isn't often, I've been working on my calendars for next year. I'm making progress on them. About a week or so ago, I had only finished January, February and March. Now I have finished April, May, June, July and and almost finished with August. Yippee! :) I sure hope I can start making cards again soon.

Also, just a little prayer request. My dad has to have a couple lymph nodes removed from his neck and jaw on Thursday. They are "suspicious." If you are so inclined, would you please say a little prayer for him that it isn't cancer? We'd all sure appreciate it!

The rest of October is still very busy for us, and now November is about booked up, too! Amazing that we can have so much going on! Luckily, it's all good stuff.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

A Beautiful Thing - Part Three

The last card with the Stampin' Up! set called "A Beautiful Thing." I used two of the stamps to make the flowers and then I matted with black. The butterfly piece was cut with a Memory Box die when I was together with friends in June. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
