Just a quickie

Just popping in to let you all know that Emma is doing really well.  She got her tracheostomy out today which is great as she can speak again (don't know if that is a good thing or not lol)  If all goes well we should be out either Sunday or Monday.  They really take great care of you up here at the Royal Children's Hospital but it is always nice to get back home again.

Be back again real soon

Quick update

Emma went into surgery on Thursday the 18th and although they told us it would only take between 4 - 6 hours she was in there for 9....  9 incredibly long hours.  They had to remove her cheek bone and the knuckle of the jaw.  The cheek has been plated and they have taken some fat from her tummy to build up her face a little.  They also went back in through the top and they also had to extend the cut so it now goes from the bottom of her ear to almost the top of her head.  She did really well. 

Today is day 4 and she has been doing a brilliant job. She is still in ICU but is hopefully being moved to a different ward this afternoon.  We had her sitting in a chair this afternoon which was a major step forward.  Had to take her off the opiates as they were making her really sick so she is now just receiving panadol and nurofen.  Cannot believe how amazing this little chickadee has been.  I am so very proud of her strength.  She is just a little trouper.

Anyway I have to get back to the hospital so good bye for now and keep praying....

More Surgery

Was hoping that I wouldn't have to be writing this again but our little munchkin needs to go in for another big operation as the tumour has returned.  The surgery will be exactly the same as the one in Spetember last year so in other words it is another biggie.  She is scheduled to go in about 9am Thursday morning.  I don't know how often I will be here on my blog but will try and get back after surgery to update you all.

Thank you all once again for your kind words, beautiful thoughts and your prayers (keep them coming)

Much love

Sorry I have been AWOL.......

Have been flat out scrapping all my Kaiserstuff for their blog and working again. 

Don't really know how much I will be around for the next couple of months as Emma's Tumour has come back.  She told us yesterday that she felt a lump on the side of her face so this morning we rang her oncologist who then spoke to her surgeon and before we knew it we were driving up to Brisbane for an MRI.

We have an appointment with her surgeon on Monday who is looking at going back in to see if he can try and remove it again and then the next step will be to hit it incredibly hard with ratiation therapy.  It is such a struggle but I know that we will get there in the end. 

Anyway I will be back here soon to show you my Kaisercraft creations.  Until then I hope you all stay safe and healthy

Classes at Kaisercraft Robina

I will be teaching classes at the Robina Kaisercraft outlet Saturday mornings from 10 - 12.  The classes will range from $15.00 to $30.00 with the average one being $20.00.  The price will include all kits so all you will need to bring along are your tools and photos.  As an added bonus whenever you are doing one of the classes you will be entitled to a fantabulous 20% off all full priced products in the store.  How fantastic is that......
All you need to do is phone the store (07)5580 9939 or just pop in at Shop 8, Robina Town Centre Drive Robina.
So without further ado here is a little sneak peek of this weeks class...........

We will be creating a feminine layout using the Chanteuse range of papers and your layout will include a place for heaps of hidden journaling or more photos.
Hope to see you there, oh and I will bring the lollies.
