Sorry for my absence...

I know I haven't been around for awhile but life has just been throwing us some real curve balls lately. Last week our long time friend and neighbor passed away, he had a massive heart attack and we were with his wife through the whole thing. It was very heartbreaking. They had been married almost 51 years. Then on Saturday my Dad was in a car accident, he is ok--thank God!! But the car was totaled and to make matters worse the people who caused him to have the accident never even stopped to see if he was ok!! I just can't believe some people!!! On top of all of this I have been having some problems with my arthritis. At my last doctor's visit the doctor told my that my arthritis has moved on to the next level and I now have rheumatoid arthritis. My inflammation markers keep going up so I have had to be on higher doses of some medications which has now started to cause some other problems. Last week I started a new medication which is an injection that I give myself. So far I haven't seen any changes but the doctor said it could take up to a month or month and a half before I might notice any significant changes. I am hoping for some positive results!!

In my last post I promised to show you some cards that I made for Mother's day and I will still do that but for today I would like to keep this post sweet and simple. I would like to leave you with the sympathy card that I made for our neighbor.

Remembering Andy~Andy and his wife Donna were like another Grandpa & Grandma to our kids. Andy was a true kid at heart, having water fights with the kids on hot summer days, always giving them treats and he loved to tease & joke. Andy will be greatly missed but we have many wonderful memories that we will always hold close to our hearts. In loving memory...

Thank you for stopping by today! I will try to get back to a more regular posting very soon. Take care & I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
