Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Lord's day! It's a beautiful day here in NC!
Today I have another card to share using the July ODBD release. It's pretty CAS for me but I actually like how it came out.
I used the newly released Hibiscus Dies, the Tropical Leaves Die, and past released Hello Die, Pierced Rectangle Dies, Double Stitched Rectangles, and Boho Bolds Paper Collection.
So I thought I'd catch you up on what's going on in my life, as many have asked. I am doing pretty well, though I am having lots of pain issues, which presumably are from the medication I am on, and perhaps some from just being out of shape and old. :( I have been cleared to go until Nov. without seeing my Oncologist unless I develop symptoms. The frustrating part of that is... what are symptoms? If I called him every time I have a new pain he would be my personal Dr. and have no time for anyone else! So... I wait and pray.
On another front, my hubby has been having some concerning symptoms where he feels like he is passing out, and sometimes does go to the ground, though he has not totally lost consciousness. So he has been undergoing multiple tests, including a 30 day heart monitor. The stress test did show a problem and the Cardiologist gave him some meds to stabilize his heart rate and make it beat more efficiently, and there is a procedure he will need to have done when the Dr can figure out which one of three possible causes is the reason for his symptoms. He officially retired on June 2 and we haven't hardly had time to realize it, having lots of family here for 11 days, and with Alan having these tests. It's been a busy time, but it was so special to spend this time with family from CA whom we don't get to see very often! Our goals for the next few months are to get our house ready to list, and get it on the market. We have purchased land in TN near to our daughter and her family and look forward to building a retirement house there whenever the timing is right. We have been traveling up there nearly weekly trying to tend to things there, and can't wait for this next adventure to begin!
So as you can see.... there's no lack of excitement here! But we are praising the Lord for His hand of protection upon us and continue to seek His leading in all these things. We continue to thank you for your prayers.... they mean so much.... and we do covet them!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
