Twilight zone

Well seems like forever since I last has been crazy.....worst was last week and the start of entering what felt like the twilight zone. my middle son came home from school sick and later in the day told us he had pain in his groin...we took him to the ER and 30 min later we were in an ambulance on our ay to the childrens hospital in the city. Met by a trauma team at the door turned out my son had testicular tortion.....where the testicle twsists and cuts off blood supply. They examined him did some tests and headed up to surgery. Unfortunately it was to late and he had to have the testicle removed.....quite upsetting for a 13 yr old boy and us. Recovery was said to be 4-6 weeks. We return home to our other 2 children and have a day or rest. My older son tells me he has a pain in his side.....I question him on it and say if not better tomorrow I will have it looked at....well no better so we head off to ER again 3 days after first son went. His white cell count is high but they are not sure..sent him home till morning.....went back for an ulrasound and yup it was scheduled for right away. Turns out it was full of puss and gangreen ahd set in...surgeon could not believe he was not in more a 3 day stay in hosital for him to administer IV antibiotics. Hly cow 2 major surgeries in 4 days....felt like life was spinning out of control.......things are looking up youngest has returned to school moving slowly but doing well. Oldest tried school yesterday but was just wiped out so home again today....he looked so tired today...hopefully they are all better soon.

This is a card my dd who is 11 made for her dance teacher......she made it all by herself. I think she did an awsome job
Wow thurs evening already......have not had a chance to pop by and Blog......trying very hard to get ready for my 1st ever craft type show this weekend. I have 250 cards made which should be okay for this one....I was trying to have a few of everything but still some holes with certain events...oh well maybe next time. I was happy to hear the buisness that sells my cards sold out of Mothers Day cards so will have to restock their shelves after this show. I had a busy week with the daycare too...lots of new little ones so keeps me on my toes.....I am sure by Sun I will just want to stay home in my jammies and rest for the day...weekends just go by too fast. My boys also have thier annual parade for cadets on sat so have to be there for that. I was so proud of my younger son..he got promoted to master bombadier on tues night!!! My oldest was promoted to Warrant a bout 1 month ago and now my hubby is to be promoted to Warrant in the cnd forces this my men are all doing well. It is the start of dance recital rehearsals so the next few weeks will be busy running my dd to her dance nights and then recital weekend.
Well back to the last card prep for sat and to watch some TV....survivor tonight......and my fav's The Mentalist and CSI......

I made this card up this weekend..I feel in love with the image and bright colors....hope you all like it too. sheet from CUP
I hope everyone had an awsome Mothers family took me shopping at a craft of my fav things to do.Then out to Timmies for lunch. We came home and I spent the afternnoon crafting in front of the fire. My dd rented a movie for me....Hatchi(sp?) it was such a good movie...a tear jerker...we were both blubbering fools by the end but we both loved it...if you get a chance rent it and buy a box of tissue.
My 1st ever craf type show is this weekend...I have been working like crazy to make sure I have enough variety of cards. I think last count it was over 200 so hopefully there will be something for everyone. I have been taking advantage of uploading my cards on craftuprint and making a little money to buy new sheets....always a good thing......

Anouther mothers day card made....card from craftuprint
I guess I missed posting yesterday...quiet day for work but then we had an event to attend in the evening. The dojo we had all trained at some point over the last ten years was closing and it was an evening to thank our sensai and his wife. My oldest had been with them the entire ten years....earning his adult black belt this past march....he had to be 16 to grade for the adult...he had been a junior black belt for 5 years. So a late evening for us.
We wook up this morning to a hail storm and then it has snowed on and off all day...weird weather for sure. My oldest went to town for a clean up group...he ended up spending the morning in a canoe cleaning garbage off the river that flows through town...he also pulled 4 shopping carts out...needless to say he was cold and soaked when he was done. Hubby and I did the weekly grocery,wal mart run while we waited for him to finish. The rest of the day was quiet....watche dTooth Fairy with my boys and made some cards. Tonight I have a fire going and my dd and I are watching the movie Hatchi and crafting.
