A Fine Whine
I made this card with scraps I had from another project. I used a piece of clip art from the Graphics Fairy and then distressed odds and ends ending up with a coat of glimmer mist on everything. Hmmm, listen to that. Now I know why very few men read this blog. Well at least I spent some time crafting. I did put in some time on the project I'm working on as well and so far so good.
The reason I say I didn't have a great day is just my usual. Medically speaking I had a rough night, and before I even got unhooked from my dialysis machine this morning, I had a call that my nephrology nurse was coming over to see me. I looked like garbage after my rough night. She immediately commented on my eyes. Anyway, she left me a jug for a lovely 24 hour urine sample, and a tremendous drain bag to use tonight instead of using the usual drain lines that go into the toilet. I'm to drain into the bag, which I will not be able to lift in the morning and then flush a sample into a very small drain bag and bring it to the hospital. I'm there for a go over of my forms for the transplant team as well as a weigh in and blood work. So lousy feeling all day today, most of tomorrow taken up with medical stuff. And knowing me, I will then need about 24 hours to bounce back.Never take your good health for granted. It can be gone just like that. I never knew what sick was until now. And don't get me started on the pain factor. Owie. Oh well, this is just a bump in the road and by Friday I'll be frisky again.
One thing about the down time is it gives me lots of thinking time to plan projects. What will I try next?
Today I watched a few videos and those sure get me motivated. I watched one project that featured Provo Craft's Gypsy. Since I won't be spending anymore money on PC, I figured out how to do the same project using Make-The-Cut. Since I rarely join in on blog hops and challenges (self-esteem issues at play) I like to privately challenge myself after watching videos with new techniques.
Here's to hoping for less pain tonight and a good rest before going to the hospital tomorrow.
