Did ya miss me?????

Sorry its been a while, you take a short break and the world just goes haywire...

How sad about Michael Jackson, a true ecentric individual who had an art all of his own! So many tributes on Fox at the moment, have watched quite a few of his video clips over the past few days... Was very saddened to hear that he had passed away as I was for Farrah as well! Though she is in such a better place now. Cancer is a horrible terrible unnecessary disease...

On my mum front, now news is still good news right! She is still having blood tests, but is improving. Not as sick as she was, but not 100% either. Nothing came back with the animal viruses either, none of the common human viruses, no tumours, cancer, etc. Her liver counts have gone down from 238 down to 139 now, so they are dropping, which is a good thing, and also an indication of why some days she is feeling a little brighter.... So there is sunshine at the end of the rainbow! Yeh!!

Also been having wisdom teeth problems. Yuk! Why were these ever invented? I am sure that 99% of us have to have them out! You would think that in the case of revolution that us humans would slowly fade them out! Last weekend I ended up going to the hospital, dentists instructions, as I could not get an emergency visit until Monday. To cut a long story short, I found out I had an abcess on the bottom RHS wisdom tooth, and top and bottom RHS wisdom teeth were impacted. Pain!!! Understatement!! On Wednesday I finally got them both pulled out, in the chair, no happy gas, just block injections & stitches...... OMG traumatic! I cried, I sooked, I yelled, I hated it, I came out shaking like a leaf, white as a ghost, and my legs trembling until I had to sit down.
From Wednesday up until today, I haven't really done much at all. Haven't even ventured out of the house. Doped up on pain killers, watching movies, (have to admit - watched Twilight a few times - totally addicted), sipping everything through a straw. Hopefully in another few days I can open my jaw and start to eat normally again! Thanks Sandy for the visit and the choccie, I have tried eating it, just keep it in my mouth and suck on it, savour the flavour. You are such a gem! And also thank you from the bottom of my heart to those of you who have emailed, or rang me to check on me! Love you girls, so blessed to have such gorgeous friends...
Though today I think I was going a little stir crazy, so I decided to create a project. I love Crate Papers Lemongrass papers. Had the pack sitting there and hadn't used it. So I decided I would make the Stationery Set by Becky Roberts. Well I must admit, I did finally get it finished this afternoon, after numerous interruptions. I love Becky Roberts, I know I have you addicted too Janey! She is the bomb when it comes to creations. You just have to check her out and get yourself some of her creations.... http://www.inkingidaho.blogspot.com/

Also just had to share this cute photo of one of my cats - Levi, totally sound asleep, curled up on the lounge the one that is closest to our fire. She layed here today for hours while I was scrapping and couldn't resisit to take a pic. How content does she look! Oh to have a cats life!!!

Isn't she just gorgeous! I love my cats!!!!

Well all, thats me, time to top up on my drugs, LOL, and go to bed and read! My little boys are already in bed and hubby isn't far off falling asleep on the lounge. Love Saturday nights like these, a warm house from the fire, everyone settled, and some quite time to read a book!

Goodnight all! Sweetdreams..

Love Lisxx

Thanks for the update Lisa! Big hugs to you and hope you feel better soon. Thankfully I had all 4 wisdom teeth out when I was 18. I remember it like it was yesterday - spent a night in hospital and the following week with bruises and a swollen jaw! Love your stationery set, I must give this a go one day - after seeing yours and Janey's gorgeous creations I really should check out Becky Roberts blog! Oh Crate Paper Lemongrass is one of my favourite paper ranges, I used mine to the last little scrap!!!

The Stationery Set and cards are gorgeous Lisa. Thanks for the idea. Have been trying to think of what we could do for the next workshop and I think you may have come up with a solution for me...
Hope you and that poor mouth feels better soon too. Take care Lis

Sandrine Dawes said...

Hi Lisa, well of course we all missed you, I did not realise you were having such a bad time, I hope you will feel better so you can eat that chocolate! well love your gift set, it is to die for, take care :)

"a picture says a thousand words"... I think those words here are: contentment, contentment, contentment, contentment... well, you get the idea! Not good news about the teeth but at least you shouldn't have any more trouble from them!

Hey There Lis!!

I am sorry to hear about your mum's health - I do hope that she is feeling better soon and you find out the answers for her ill health. It is so frustrating when a loved one is sick and all the tests in the world can't tell you what is going on - thinking of you luv

Oh Lisa your wisdom teeth experience sounds postively horrible - I have no idea why we had to have them - they cause so much more trouble than they are really worth - I had mine out surgically when I was 18 - might I add after I had years of childhood/teenager orthodontic work and the bloody things were compacted in my jaw bone and caused all my teeth to go crooked again. I still recall how bloody painful the whole experiece was and how my lower face blew up like a balloon

Your stationary set is just gorgeous Luv - totally love it.

Heya Lis, you're MIA again. Hope you and your Mum are well. I've left a little something for you on my blog xoxox

Al said...

Lis, omgosh your stationery set is just to die for. How beautiful!
Hope you are fully recovered from having your wisdom teeth out - ouch!

Al said...

Oh yes by the way Lis, your kitty cat is just gorgeous. How relaxing it looks on your couch x

Kristine said...

Hi Lis! I was also told the other day that instead of having some wisdom teeth holes filled, they could pull them for the same price. I think I will pass on that now! Ouch!!!!

Glad to hear your mum is improving - it is amazing the number of medical conditions that go undiagnosed either because they haven't been discovered yet or they just can't pin it down - I am in that basket at the moment as well unfortunately.

BTW, your cat is gorgeous. I want to give it a big squeeze!
