EPEC~(extra points for extra cookies#
Becky rides a bike herself so extra cookies for bringing a big loud bike to the party
And today's colour challenge CC410 - soft suede, calipso coral and pool party #I think my colours are close enough to work for the colour challenge#.
This week our cards are going to Oak Brook, Il. to Becky who was brought to our attention by SCS member Carolyn #cspessmeg#.
In Carolyn's words:
Becky Wilkie was diagnosed with Leukemia #AML) in Aug 2012 and has since undergone several treatments of chemotherapy, radiation, medication & recently a Bone Marrow Transplant on 12/12/12. Mother of 6, grandmother to 3+, wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend to many.
Since her transplant, Becky is on an upward trend of recovery but every precaution still needs to be made to free her from infection since she has NO immune system right now. For 2 weeks after the transplant she was taken care of well at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, IL. She has a total of 100 days of isolation before coming home to those that love her. She needs to stay close to the hospital in case she gets ill so she has taken residence with our sister Kim at a special hotel in Oakbrook, IL. During her 100 days she is prescribed several medications to protect her from infections, lessen pain, stabilize the rest of her body and most importantly, prevent her body from rejecting the donated bone marrow
Thanks for looking, I hope you will come and join our teaparty and send some happy mail to Becky.
P.S.... I ride a motorcycle as well - a 750 Honda Magna ---only rode it three times last year as I broke my right ankle in July - having to get a plate, pins and screws to repair it.
