Hi ladies!!! I didn't get my challenge card ready. I was going to do it yesterday but then I got all caught up in watching my wonderful Georgia Bulldogs lose the Outback Bowl in a 3rd overtime. After that, I didn't want to do anything but cry, but I decided working on cards would help me forget the pain.
Anyway, my eye had been sort of bothering me all day but with the neck pain, I just didn't pay any attention to it. But when I tried to focus on the card stuff, my eyes went all blurry. I finally gave up and went to bed.
Well about midnight after finally sleeping maybe 30 minutes, I woke up with my eye throbbing along with my neck. It was all red and swollen and gooky. Not itchy like pink eye though. PAINFUL!
So I spent all night hurting from my neck AND my eye--of course it's my GOOD eye!!! I can't see anything out of the other one anyway.
So I had an appt this morning with the neck dr. He convinced me to continue the seried of steroid injections and then if those don't work, he's sending me for surgery. I got him to look at my eye and he said "well it looks really infected. You need to see an eye doctor." DUH!!!
Of course I get my glasses at Walmart and so I went there but they couldn't do anything. I called my regular dr. and couldn't get an appt until Thursday!!! So I finally gave up and went to a minute clinic thing at Walgreens. They use a nurse practitioner. She was very nice and poked at my eye(OUCH!) She also concluded that it was infected. didn't know why but atleast she gave me antibiotic eye drops and said if it got worse call your dr or go to the ER!!
By this time it was like 2:00 and I was supposed to be at work at 1:00. I obviously didn't make it. So I came home and laid down with a warm washcloth on my eye for the last 2 hours.
Then I got up and for the heck of it, I went back through the cards I've made in the past to see if I could find one that sort of CASED the card of Lisa's I had picked out. I know it doesn't really count, but at least I can post a card.
Here's Lisa's first as a pic, then mine as a link

Oh Sam, what a terrible time you are having with your eye and everything else... Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in quickly...

Love your card, the colours are really pretty. I like the flower and the double-sided ribbon!!!!

Yes I made the flower. It was a pain!! But not really hard. I think I got the tutorial here on SCS. But I'll look it up!! Gotta get to work now. I'll check in later. BTW-my eye is MUCH better this morning. Not perfect, but much better. No such news on the neck and arm though. *sigh*

Before I go and type up the new round I wanted to say to Gael, I am so sorry for your loss. That is so hard to deal with during the holidays but then your birthday too...I am so sorry. Please know you are in my prayers. Hugggs And Sam, you too...you are in my prayers. I hope your eye gets all better. And yes, I would say your card should count. After all you did post it. And under the circumstances I say it counts. Huggs.

Sorry I've been so absent again. DD's good friend found her mom dead yesterday from an apparent accidental overdose of pain meds after having surgery. They are all devastated. I spent the last evening on the phone with DD and her friend. It is a horrible situation. This girl(woman) also found her dad about 3 years ago after he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. She's really had it rough and really doesn't have other family to help. Her DH is awesome and so is his family, so she has support, but she is also 24 weeks pregnant and is taking this very hard. She is also raising her 2 year old neice because her sister is completely useless!!!!
They could use your prayers.

Thanks Yvonne. Yes is truly is tragic. Courtney(that's her name) is trying to hold it together but it's really hard for her. She and her DH are such sweet, wonderful people. I hate to see them have to go through this. I've become very close to them over the last 2 years that I've known them.
