Chemo Round 2

Round 2 of chemo begins tomorrow.  Stuart is taking her up as she has an 8.30am appointment and will have to leave very early.  I will stay here and get Jacob off to school then head on up after that.

Emma and I will be staying at a place called Leonard Lodge and will go over to the hospital each morning for her chemo.  If all goes well we will come straight home after her treatment Saturday and if not then we will stay for the extra night.  I am guessing that she will be fine to travel as she will be pumped full of the anti nausea medication. 

Am praying that it is a relatively quite stay with no dramas.

Have been doing a little scrapping the past few days too, I really had the urge to scrap so scrap I did.  I managed to get 6 layouts, 2 beyond the page and 4 cards done since Friday.  I can only show you a couple of things as the rest are for Mad about Scrappin and cannot be shown yet.

Well there you have it, my scrapping.  As I said I have more but not just yet.

Found out this week that a beautiful friend and her equally beautiful family are leaving the Gold Coast for a few years to move up North.  I don't get to see her much but it is has always been nice to know that if I ever need her then she was not far away.  Now she is going to be miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiles away.
We will miss you Mel but thankfully for Facebook and email you will always be contactable.

My niece came over Saturday to stay the night with Emma and on Sunday they were very quite which is not always a good thing.  Well the photos below will explain why the quiteness.  As you can see my niece has decorated Emmas head with Kaisercraft droplets and a few other things.  Very cute girls lol.  I couldn't help laughing when I saw this.  Emma thought is was hilarious.. Girls - what can you do with them hehehehe

 Check out the Zoolander pose on Miss Em, you go girl.

Well I have loads of packing to do for our little hospital visit so I should probably be doing that instead of playing on my computer.

I hope this finds you all happy and healthy.

Love Leanne :-)

Hi Leanne,
Just wanted to leave a little comment to say i've been visiting your blog ever since I read about Emma on Melissa Goodsell's blog. I hope the next round of treatment goes well for her :)
I have posted a package for your lovely little girl just this morning, i'm not sure how long it will take to get to you as it's coming all the way from Scotland!

Hoping Emma is doing well and this visit to hospital will be very successful in her treatment. I have been thinking of you each day and keeping my fingers crossed.

My daughter who is 10 years old (and some of her friends) have been collecting stickers for Emma over the last 2 weeks. I am hoping to post them up to you next week.

Your new blog design looks great. Sometimes it's nice to have a change :)

Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself and keep positive xxoo

Love from Susan McGuire (smiles1965) from Scrapboxx.
