Well today is the day I have been dreading for the last 8 years ever since we found out Pete's kidneys are not working as well as they should. He has gone and got himself a stomach bug and is feeling really down, he can't keep anything down at the moment and has spent most of the morning with his head down the toilet. I think I may have covered the word down by now! Seriously though this is not good news as he can't get dehydrated, if after 12 hours he has not kept any water down he has to be admitted to hospital to go on a drip so that his kidneys won't pack in permanently. Then there is the knock on effect that this could have on his Crone's and his anemia. I'm surprised that with 2 boys and his lowered immune system we have managed to go this long before he got a bug. He's lying in bed at the moment with 2 quilts over him and a bucket by his side next to a full pack of dioralite. Fingers crossed everyone.
While Pete is lying in bed feeling like sh** as he puts it I thought I would get busy and make a get well soon card, before you start thinking how sweet I am, it's not for him it's for this weeks DCM's challenge. I might just give it to him later though. He has managed to keep a rehydration drink down for about an hour and has just had another one so hopefully he's coming out the other side.
This weeks Dare is set by Tracie (Bondgirl) and is titled Photo Finish....
This week I want you to make a card for any occasion but it must include a photograph somewhere! The photo subject can be people, items, locations, flowers, absolutely anything so get snapping. Dont forget to check copyright if you are using someone elses photographs in your art workI took the photograph I have used in a field last week in France. I sliced it into 3 pieces and mounted them on white card. I printed the sentiment onto some frosted paper (mental block can't think of the proper term) and then tore it and fixed it with a brad and 2 eyelets. I finished it off with a raffia bow.
