He was in for tests for a week. All good, although a difficult week for all of us. He is a seizure patient and they took away his meds for a week to induce seizures so they could map where they were coming from.
He had a small seizure on Sunday but yesterday he had an awful grand mal - he acutally started turning blue and couldn't breathe - they had to give him oxygen.
But they got the results they wanted and through a surgical procedure (scarry, it is brain surgery), they can remove a few bad cells and expect him to be seizure-free. That is why he was in the hospital this week - to see if he is a viable candidate and it has been confirmed.
Lots more tests to do to make sure where they are operating (in front of his left ear) but at least htey know he can be cured with surgery.
The worst is over except for the surgery itself and he will only be in the hospital a couple days for that.
My BF and I go to 3 scrap weekends per year. And her darling husband decided earlier this year we 'neded' to take his van , instead of the usual 4WD wagon as we just can't take enough.. We start organising kits ect months in advance but you still need ribbons, paints, inks and sprays ect ect ect . It all adds up and theres always something we did'nt take... And there's always lots we don't use but we have an absolute ball....
Ok I'm leaving for a crop in the morning and promised to take a picture for my friend at work.. Right now there is not room in my little malibu for one more thing it's going to be close to get my purse in it.
I'm going to work in my craft room all weekend, hopefully. If I can keep myself from scrappy shopping.
I have a quilt to get finished, and I give good job cards out at work. I really need more. I made a couple of bday cards on my lunch, but needed to get them in mail. Sometimes I like me better when I have to hurry.
Congratulations on the new wagon Kim - I love mine!
If it is the same wagon the steering is very funky, it doens't always go the way you are pulling it. One of my girlfriends has one like it and she discovered you can get behind it and steer it with the handle and it stays on course better. doesn't matter to me - I use it for eveyr crop! And at home it holds my supplies for the next crop.
If I need something to work on here, I work out of the wagon and put it back.
I was verrrryyyy bad yesterdayand today! I bought a cuttlebug v2 and a bunch of nestables. When I told the husband, only comment he made was that he hoped I remembered to buy the jersey he wanted! But of course...! I havent bought new tools for a year so I am looking forward to new stuff! Oh and i also bought the ribbon cutter!
Sizzix is the Deal of the Day today. That's bad...for the wallet
I keep looking at the die with the row of houses that TH has. I really like it, but wonder how often I'd use it, but I can think of several ways...so I'm sure I'll find a way to justify buying it...along with the Halloween-looking fence and a few others. (I know they all have names, but don't recall what they are off-hand.)
Too bad they don't have a Daily Deal of buying extra scrappy time. THAT would be a big seller!~Judy
I usually only try to bring 2 totes: One carries inks, chalks, scissors (2 pair),punches (limited to 5), 2 magazines, cutter and bag of ribbons, cardstock and patterned paper (but not much, maybe 50 sheets), small container of photos, ..the other tote is strictly for page kits that I put together myself (with photos)-I TRY to make at least 12 but it all depends on how long the crop is. I may tuck in a kit or two that I purchased in case I want to work on something else...I put kits in those cropper hopper holder thingees...or the ones from Hobby Lobby
