"The Good Old Days" April CC

I am a bit slow on the blogging update but the first challenge for the weekend was...
• Choose an old sketch from the gallery to create a LO.
• You must use something old on the LO.
This is my layout based on Belinda's sketch for the Feb CC that I hadn't done.

This is our family saying....
"GIVE YOURSELF A CHANCE"

Forever Always April Cybercrop

It is very sad to think our very last Cybercrop at Forever Always is fast approaching. They say all good things must come to an end. But like all good things we must look back at THE GOOD OLD DAYS and think of all the happy memories and the place Sonia has worked so hard at creating for us. So this cybercrop will be all about THE GOOD OLD DAYS! I do hope you will join us on Thursday 22 April to give FA the send of it deserves, full of chatter, laughter and inspiration.

APRIL SKETCH

10 Days in Hospital



Thank goodness for scrapbooking!! Otherwise my recent unplanned hospital stay in protective isolation would have been very boring. Particularly when I wasn't even feeling sick. The medication I was on for Graves Disease (thyroid problem) caused my white cells to drop to nil. So I was rushed into hospital as I had no immune system to fight off any bad germs. After a bone marrow biopsy conf it wasn't Leukemia but definitely the meds, I was given daily injections to help boost the bone marrow into producing the white cells again. Bad news is I was stuck in hospital with only family that could visit and I missed Kaleah's 7th birthday. Good news is I missed volunteering at the school disco - 7 hrs of chicken dancing - damn shame!! And I completed 8 layouts and over 10 cards. Read 2 and 1/2 books, watched some movies, and relaxed. It was the best I have felt in months. Now it is back to the specialist to sort out the thyroid. My options are radio therapy (which might or might not work, but have to wait at least 6 months to find out) or surgery. I need to talk it over with the dr more and do some research, but atm I am thinking just do the surgery and rip the bloody thing out.
These are a couple of the layouts I completed. I won't show the rest because I might use them for upcoming sketch challenges at Forever Always
