u r Sweet! and a (not so short) story

So I am kind of bummed. This was another card for the sketch over at 2 sketches 4 You. I was so pleased with my little card. I didn't think about this one at all. I was having a bad day on Friday and I had to pick dh up from work (we are a 1 car household) and he offered to take me to my lss knowing it would perk me up (which it did!) Great guy huh? Love him! Anyhow, I bought the new October Afternoon 8x8 pad Fly a Kite. Oh my YUM! Is all I can say about this line. October Afternoon is one of my all time favorite paper companies and I couldn't wait to play with it. I got the paper, some inks from Tim Holtz and a bunch of other stuff. I came home dumped the contents on my desk and made this card. I was so pleased. But it was dark and cards don't photograph well with those energy saving light bulbs so I waited until morning when I photographed it and was going to post it.

Well, I got the photo taken, I even got it uploaded to Flickr. I was getting horrible pains in my back and they were becoming unbearable. Everyone I talked to that day (including a tweet from someone sweet) helped me realize that I either had a kidney infection or kidney stones. I called the Dr. and she thought the same. I wanted to wait until Monday before going to the Dr. as the ER takes hours and costs us so much money. But she said no....I had to go asap. So go I did. To make a long story short...everyone thought it had something to do with my kidney's. Until the CT scan came back. They caught a piece of my lung during CT and noticed something. They immediately sent me to Xray. Turns out I have a pretty bad case of pneumonia.

I was at the hospital for over 6 hours. I was spent by the time I got home. I ate something and ended up in bed at 8:30 last night. I completely forgot to post. So better late than never right?

The plus side of things....I get to sit and create until my hearts content today because the Dr. said to take it easy....and to try and stay upright as they think the pneumonia came from me being laid up with a bum back for almost 3 weeks. I thought I had a cough from post nasal drip due to allergies...and I rarely cough.

So there is my drama for the week. Sorry to overload you. I promise to make an eye appealing, fun post later. It's 8:00 a.m. I have so much time to play today!

Have a great one.
