Update on Michael/ Congrats Card

Hello my peeps!
I am so happy to have time to drop in and give you an update on how Michael and I are doing.
It has certainly been the biggest struggle Michael and I have taken on together,yet Michael is doing really well. His right foot is still giving him problems which slows down the process of being able to use the walker. On the other hand he has the wheel chair mastered and does things I never knew could be done or should be done.
 As for me I am OK... it is a lot to deal with but things has settled a lot in the past week. Michael could wine or cry up to 20 times a day which at times is really difficult especially when I am trying to take an important call or put supper on the table... on the plus side I must be getting better at multi-tasking!!!
We are heading back over to Halifax  on Nov 3rd to the 5th or 6th to see the Urologist , Neurologist  and the Doctor who did surgery on Michael. These test are to eliminate the possibility of his back having caused the damage to his feet. I have high hopes that it is not and believe and pray that he will not need surgery on his back, please pray it doesn't because I don't know if Michael or I could handle another surgery right away, there's a high possibility of going Coo Coo, BUT I do have a management strategy, its called
Candy Crush and The Ellen Show, hehe!
Today I also want to show you a card that I made a couple months back and just didn't find the time to post it, actually I just accidentally found the photo this morning on my camera. This card wasn't for any person in particular but I thought it would certainly be nice to have on hand .

I used Spellbinders Floral ovals die twice, once to cut the largest die in blue and once again using white cardstock which I cut out the oval and placed on top of the blue die.
I added Spellbinders leaves and flowers from Wild Orchid.
It is hard to see but I added silver stickles to add some glimmer!
Thank you all for your continued support and prayers, I can't wait to be back for good.
Lots of Love
