Today is my dear, sweet husband's birthday. It's unfortunate that he had to spend both Easter and his birthday here at the Cleveland Clinic ... but if they make him "all better," he'll have several more Easters and Birthdays to celebrate!!!
Besides bringing him in some festive balloons, greeting cards he'd received in the mail and a piece of cake with lots of icing on it from the 2 little girls next door, I made him this card.
I told him that when he was "all better" we would either hit the beach (hence the water background paper) or venture out to someplace quiet and serene and watch the sunset. My scene was made using various Stampscapes images and colored in with SU watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I just bought this birthday sentiment stamp at the Adventures in Stamping convention yesterday but forgot to look and see who the mfg. was ... oops sorry!!
NOW HERE'S SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS!
Mark's numbers are bumping up quite well (as expected) and they told him that if he starts getting up moving around more and can start getting more fluids in on his own, he might be able to get out of here by mid week!!! How great would that be!! They've taken him off all IV's with the exception of the fluids and the Flagel for the C-dif infection he has. He was actually able to eat a popsicle and then a small portion of Mac 'n Cheese today. That's the first solids he's had in 7 days! Things are starting to look up and I'm hoping tomorrow is twice as good as today.
Yes ... Prayers are being answered!!! Thank you all for your well wishes & prayers. I will update you in a couple of days as to when "departure" day may actually be!!
