Packing and More Surgery

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH i hate packing.  On the up side though I am certainly getting rid of heaps of clutter and stuff that I will never use.  The house is officially ours on the 1st of August.  Oh my it is so very exciting and we are all looking forward to the big move.  It is going to be so nice to look out the kitchen window of a morning to see nothing but grass and trees rather than the neighbours entertaining area :-)  Emma is getting rather excited that she gets to decorate her room exactly how she wants it.  She had surgery on Friday.  Yes it was rather unexpected but the day before we had seen the dentist and he said that he wanted to do two crowns, two extractions and 3 fillings.  Instead of having these done over various days he wanted them done in the one sitting and suggested that a general anaesthetic would be much more comfortable for Emma.  We got home on Thursday afternoon to a message on the phone that they had booked her in for surgery the very next day.  Wow how was that for service.  The Royal Children's Hospital certainly don't mess around.  Everything went well.  She toddled into the theatre all by herself after giving daddy and I a big kiss and telling us that she loves us :-)  She was so very brave and incredibly strong for such a little munchkin. Breaks my heart that she has to deal with this all the time.  I have been praying so very hard for this to all be over and for Emma to be healed moving on with her life.  It just never seems to end.  We have been keeping an eye on the lump (tumour) on the side of her neck and both Stuart and I feel that it has grown again.  I am taking her up to see her oncologist on Wednesday so maybe he will tell me something new.   Will keep you all updated.

Well that is about all from me tonight.  Oh before I go I must show you my latest published layout.  This was in this month's Scrapbooking Memories.  I love this photo of my two men.  

God Bless 

Oh I also completed my Masters entry today.  Will post it off tomorrow.  I am really happy with the items that I created but you just never know what they are looking for at any particular moment.  I wish everyone who is entering the very best of luck.

Hello Leanne, I'm a regular reader of your blog, but have never commented. It's been so long since you posted... I know that with a child with cancer there may be bad things going on...but I hope and pray you're just busy and that things are going as well as possible with Emma. Cheers!
