Update on Michael's Surgery and Christmas Card
First of all I am so happy to say I am at my best! Totally symptom free and energized. Thank you all for your support and prayers.
As you know Michael's surgery was scheduled for November but there has been a big change. After the Doctor had looked at Michael's x-rays there is more going on that has yet to be investigated.
They will do a sedated MRI to check his spine because one foot is showing 20 years worth of damage as well as his leg. They suspect it is to do with the communication from the spine to the brain to the feet... it was the same with his bowel.
The doctor also noted that Michael has a very high threshold for pain as this kind of damage rarely goes on without complaints. Michael doesn't complain but I have seen him struggle to walk if he were on his feet too long at school, especially after Gym class.
The Sedated MRI unfortunately is a ways off , the doctor said there was an 8 month wait but it could be sooner. I will be keeping all of Michael's cards that were sent for that time... (I can't help but want to look as you could imagine! but I won't, hehe)You are all like family to me , it is an amazing feeling to go through this knowing you were all praying and thinking of us!! You will never know how much it means to me.. seriously, it runs deep.
Today I want to show you a simple Christmas card I made, I am doing a whole collection of simple ones which I will show the rest of this week.
Most of this card was made from stamping, even the flowers! (I stamped flowers on red metallic paper using black stazon ink, fussy cut them , then layered them adding a sparkly green jewel in the center of the top flower.)
I also added a green jewel to the middle of the word joy and the mini chevron image was embossed
Also I will be showing pictures of our trip to Halifax!!! We did so well for being so exausted and managed to have many laughs.. what I really liked was I had a peace deep down inside considering the circumstances...I am sooo grateful. Here are some pictures of our trip:
It was dark when we got on the boat, we got to watch the sun rise!
Michael being silly... he has a facination with gloves!!!! We once bought him a Mickey plush and he wanted to take the gloves off, hahahaha..( that didn't go over well, lol )
A park we found in Halifax, It was awesome!
View from Hospital , level 5.5 parking
I told him he was a silly goofer guts and he started laughing and made me repeat it 8 times, lol
Have a fantastic day!
