Another One for Di

It's Wednesday...  That means a few things to me this week.  I have reason to celebrate : )  The first is that I actually got up EARLY today!  If you've been reading my ramblings for awhile, you may remember that me and mornings are not good buddies!  I do some of my best work late at night.  But today, I HAD to get up early to go to the doctor : (  Every 6 months, I have a date with my wonderful doctor.  I really do love her!  I know that sounds strange lol!!  Dr. Eve is the surgeon who removed my breasts - which normally one might have negative feelings about that, but she was so compassionate and has a wonderful personality.  So, in the worst of times, God brought Dr. Eve to take the BEST care of me : )  It's been three years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had lumpectomy surgery; next month will be three years since I had a double mastectomy and then surgery to remove a staph infection...  So that means it's been three years being cancer free - yippee!!!  That's the BEST reason to celebrate : )

For anyone who hasn't had regular check ups, I highly recommend you do so.  My cancer was caught VERY early and I didn't even have to go through chemo.  Go get your mammograms girls : )


...and now to celebrate how I feel about YOU, here's a card I made using the fab sketch from Our Creative Corner:

I really do love you, my friends : )  xoxo

That is the BEST reason to celebrate Lori. 3 years of being cancer free, may you have many many many more cancer free years ahead. This card is beautiful with all the tiny pink roses. It's not just a card, it's a card with wonderful meaning.
