So, I definitely had a duh moment and I hope you ladies laugh with me, but it's ok to laugh AT me, too! I checked my mailbox today and had one piece of mail. It was addressed to my honey. I pick it up and says to self, "Who is this Deborah Westbrook? And why is she sending Derrick(my husband) what appears to be a card?! I look at the name again and I realize that the last name looked familiar. Uh, er...Debby, the birthday card arrived for Derrick! Thank you so much, sweetie. It will remain unopened until his birthday or close enough since he's deploying.

Cool beans, I will add him to the list. And you're good on the "blonde moment"...lol...the original, plan was to only submit one name but then when I thought about it, I figured it would be better to do it on a monthly basis.

I have all but one of my cards done and in envies. I was going to stop at the post office tonight, but I'm at the hospital with my aunt. We called an ambulance this evening because she couldn't move. I'm now sitting in the ICU waiting area for the night. Her blood sugar was over 800 when we got here, its down to 500 right now. She is in kidney failure and has a severe infection. This is the first time she's been to a doctor since she was in high school 46 years ago, so she's freaking out pretty bad. As soon as I leave the hospital in the morning, I'll go straight to the post office! Sorry i didn't get them out earlier!

I was able to leave the hospital for 2 hours today, so my first stop was the post office! 4 of my cards are postal!

Kendra, thanks for asking. She is stable, but still fighting infection and they're still working on finding the right cocktail to control the diabetes. The swelling has not gone down much, so they still can't tell us whether the amputation will be above or below the knee. She is in good spirits though. Her face is regaining color and she wants to recover. So far, we're still staying positive but taking things one day at a time. We all appreciate the prayers and well wishes. It's going to be a long road, but we're in it for the long haul.

Debby, I think you submitted your sister in law.
Melissa, I will be praying for your family.
Ladies, if you haven't already submitted a name for Feb, try to pm me that today. When I come to work tomorrow, I will be pm'ing the February list to everyone.
Thanks everyone....you're all awesome!!!!

Thanks ladies! I just spent 3 hours in with my Aunt chatting about old times and fun memories. She's doing better today. Able to stay awake for longer periods of time. The infection is starting to clear up, finally. She's still going to loose the left leg, but it's looking like they may be able to save the knee. They're pretty positive she'll be able to keep the left leg. Her spirit is high and she's staying positive. I had her laughing several times today and she was cracking jokes, so mentally, she's really improved! Thanks for the prayers, they are all helping!

I need to make more masculine cards. I don't have any, so when I make cards tomorrow...I need to make a few. And I need to pick up more pp's and embellies so that it's easy for me to make masculine cards.

I was making two really cute cards and my cricut went kaput on me! Now I have to buy a new Cricut machine. And maybe I missed the post, but did Aubrey Adams and Gabriel Acosta receive their birthday cards from me? I have two more cards to get out, but apparently I won't be using my Cricut to create them! Ugh!

Debby, I was using my favorite cartridge, Forever Young, when my Cricut went out! I was cutting the layers for the outfits. It's ok, though. I put the lady figures from the cartridge away for later because I am going to get me a new machine next week. I will complete the cards that need to go out this week, though. No worries. Thank you, my friend, for such a sweet offer!

Hi ladies! JCI. I still have one more card to finish and I'll be home Monday (FINALLY) to do so. It's been a long couple weeks and there are several more long weeks ahead, but I think we're out of the worst of it. My aunt will be having her surgery next week, hopefully, and the surgeon thinks he'll be able to save more of the leg than originally thought. She might be home as soon as 3 weeks from today - depending on how recovery goes, of course. I have so many things to catch up on again.

Hope everyone who received a card from me liked it! Did Gabriel and Aubrey get their cards? I have to transfer the pictures from my camera (on the to-do list for Monday) so I can upload the cards I mailed.

Artesha, sorry to hear your Cricut went out on you! That always happens to me in the middle of a project as well - various tools break or just get up and walk away for a few days! I'm sure your cards will be amazing even without using the Cricut to finish them!
