New Years Eve

Can you believe that it is New Years Eve???  I can't

This year has gone so fast and has been a tough one for us, what with Emma having the tumours and the big surgeries that she has gone through.  We were hoping that this year was going to be way better but it hasn't started that way.  Emma is on her way to hospital now to get an MRI as they have found another tumour in her face and she is being admitted to hospital on the 5th January, just one day after her birthday.  Not much of a birthday for her this year.

On a brighter note, we had a fabulous Christmas in Tea Gardens with Stuarts family.  It was great to see the cousins all playing. They all get on so well and there are never any arguments.  They are just amazing kids.  Stuart's sister in law had her brother and family come over from the UK so that made the day even more special. 

Santa was very nice to me this year as I got a beautiful ghd hair straightener...... No more daggy hair for this little chickie.

I have actually put the photos into collages which make it easier to see more

There are loads more photos but I will save them for another post.

Finally I just want to say

May 2011 be a happy healthy and prosperous year for you all.
See you next year

3 more sleeps

Can  you believe that there are only 3 more sleeps until Santa comes?  This year has been such a blur and has gone way too quick for my liking.

We had Emma up at the hospital on Monday as she has a lump on the side of her face.  We managed to get an ultrasound done and then the surgeon came and spoke to us.  We then had to go back on Tuesday for a fine needle aspiration of the area to find out what on earth it is.  They don't believe that it could be tumour again although there is always the slight possibility that it is.  They are leaning towards a haematoma which is what Stuart and I are hoping it is.  Seeing as Emma has a needle phobia they decided to do the procedure in theatre.  Emma was nervous as usual but she was so brave and walked into the theatre, popped herself up on the table and placed the mask over her face and held it there until she was asleep.  The procedure took them about 30 minutes and they managed to get a good sample to send to pathology.  The doctor that performed the procedure said that it was not solid which is what we were praying for.  Now we just have to wait until about the 30th to get the results.  I hate waiting especially for something like this.

We are heading down to Tea Gardens this year to spend Christmas with Stuarts brother and his family.  I am hoping that the rain stays away for us but I am thinking that that is not really going to happen.  We won't be seeing my brother and his family this year as they have jetted off to Koi Samui (sp?) for Christmas and the New Year.

Well I will leave you now and if I don't get back her before Christmas I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has been reading my blog and sending us all their prayers etc for Emma.  I hope you all have the Merriest Christmas ever and remember that Jesus in the reason for the season.  On that note I will leave you with photos of our past week.

Love hugs and kisses

I cannot believe how fast December is going.  I didn't realise that it had been so long since I had updated the good old blog (sorry mum)

Everything has been going along nicely for the Love Family for the past few weeks.  Emma had her final visits to the surgeons who appear to be very happy with how everything is progressing. Although she did notice a lump on the left side of her face last night so I phoned her surgeon this morning how said to go to local gp and get a script for antibiotics incase there was slight bleeding under the skin.  If it has not settled down by tomorrow afternoon then I am to make the trip up to the Royal Chilodrens Hospital again.  I think by now my car could probably drive itself up there.

Business is going well, we just had news that we have managed to be on the NSW Government preferred supplier list which for a new RTO is just fantastic.  This will enable us to make our marketing a little more wide spread.

We are all looking forward to Christmas and a well deserved break.  Stuart has been flat out lately and it will be good to see him relax for a while.  We are heading down to Tea Gardens/Port Stephens for a week to spend Christmas with the family and then on our way home we thought we may stop off in Coffs Harbour.  I guess we will just see how we feel at the time. 

Have been playing around with "Brine Design" digital scrapbooking and came up with the layouts above.  It is so different scrapping digitally as opposed to traditional.  Brine Design have some awesome stuff that really lends itself to being printed out so will be doing that very soon.  I also have other stuff to share but it is for Mad about Scrapping so cannot be shown just yet.  Mad about scrapping have just started a Facebook page too so make sure you head on over and like the page.

Anyway I do not have a lot more to tell. Emma and her girlfried are out in the pool at the moment so I think that it would be a good opportunity to get some photos.

Catch you later

Weather is crap!!!!

I cannot believe how much wet weather we have been having lately.  It does not feel much like summer at the moment.

We are supposed to be going to the "White Christmas" at Movie World tonight with thanks to the Make-a-wish foundation bit if this rain keeps up then we definitely won't be going.
We have such  a busy weekend, Movie World tonight, our Staff Christmas party tomorrow night, take time out for Tabatha Sunday and then Muse Sunday night.  I am so tired just thinking about it all. 

Emma is doing really well.  She had her post op follow up on Wednesday and the surgeon is really impressed with how it is all looking.  They said that she will not need any more surgery now for about 6 months. YAH.  We have two more appointments up at the hospital and then that is it for the rest of the year. 

This year for Christmas we are heading down to Tea Gardens to spend Christmas Day with the family.

Anyway I have to go and get some stuff organised so I will post more when I have something interesting to share, until then take care and stay safe.
