Good News at last

Yes! you read right. My niece is on her way home from the hospital as I type (she is on the train home right now and will arrive home at approx 10pm). She does have to go back in about 6 weeks time to have the creases made in her ear, as at the moment her new ear it is like a pocket of sorts.

Prayers please

On Tuesday afternoon my niece Summer-Rose underwent several hours of extensive reconstruction on her Right ear at the Royal Women's & Children's Hospital in Brisbane. Summer had a rib and cartilage removed and used to make the creases in her ear (she was born with only 1 full ear and a bud of flesh for her other, she has no ear opening either but she does have an eardrum).

My sister and mum are both staying at Ronald McDonald House near the hospital. Next time I visit or go through the drive through at McDonald's I definitely will be leaving a nice donation (something I haven't done before) to say "Thank You" for their care and compassion they have showed towards my family during their stay down there for the next week or so.

On my family's return to RMH Tuesday evening they had a near death experience (my mum's words) as the walk back to RMH is only 1 kilometre but they had to walk on the footpath that was barely 1 metre wide as there is road works going on outside the hospital. So needless to say is was quite scary for them as the traffic was flat out and full on at that hour of the evening.

Last evening I phoned the hospital to enquire on my niece's health and was advised by the great nurses on her ward that she was doing just fine, she has several drains attached to her neck and ear. And she is in control of her pain via a morphine syringe driver. She has finally had something to eat, drink and passed urine too. As she was too scared to do so before now in case she vomited (something she don't like doing - who does?).

Sassafrass Lass Class

Scrapcrazy attended my class tonight and wow we blitzed the lesson for 2 pages in 1 & 1/2 hours instead of the 3 hours it normally would have taken. I have some more Sassafrass Lass pages on the boil for next weeks class.

Here are a few pages that I have done using the wonderful papers, what do you think of their papers???

The Big Night has arrived

Some of you may know that it is Confirmation, First Communion and Euchrist time again. My son's was earlier tonight at Holy Rosary Church here in Bundaberg.
Doesn't he look smashing in his little tuxedo!!! A real little man...

Not to be outdone DD also dressed up for the occassion (if she had her way she would have outshone DS on his big night.) Miss M had used up all her battery power on her dig camera before the night had begun, taking photos left, right and centre before we got to the church. (I have no idea where she gets that from NO IDEA what so ever!!!) LOL.

I do have other photos but they will have to wait until Monday when Camera House opens as I borrowed a Very Good Friends film camera for tonight as my dig camera is crap at taking night-time pictures. THANK YOU SANDRA for the loan of the camera and popping into the church tonight you could not have timed your visit any better. I was thrilled to know that you made the time and effort to come along I really really do appreciate our friendship!!!

Okay enough waffle I heard you all say, so good night from me.


What a poser
