This package arrived Fri.



It's from VBAndrea

AK shirts for me & Tom

The stitching forms animal shapes on the trunk (you can see it in the close up below), and she was intently inspecting it. She wasn't happy that I took a picture of her in that position though, so she adjusted herself into a more proper pose while she finished looking. There's advantages to posting without her.

The darling little giraffe that I should have been able to draw, but was giving me fits.

Inspecting the fabric patterns. Even the close ups don't show very well that the animals have designs on their fabric.





Tom & I both had our hair cut over the weekend. Angel never wants me to get it cut so short, but I just can't take it when it's hot.

Thank you so much Andrea for the amazing outfit for Angel, and wonderful AK shirts for us! Tom and I love the shirts - thank you so much for making them for us.

I got them all posted before Angel got home, but just barely.

3 more packages arrived today

I need more hours in the day, and more days before we leave.

Thank you Tracy & Michele



Angel has clinic on Thurs. She has been very nervous about it (we hadn't even gotten off the clinic property last month when she started to worry), because if any of her counts have dropped, it will have a major impact on her trip. Hopefully her ANC & platelets will have even increased.

Cutie Pie is Angel's last remaining gerbil. Normally she is a very hyperactive little thing, and daredevil wannabe that amazes us with her feats. Today she just hasn't been herself, is having difficulty climbing, and showing other signs that indicate that she most likely has developed a tumor. We will be gone for 13 days, and her uncle will be watching Cutie. He works though, and won't be able to look after her like I could if she declines. I'm having trouble typing this, through the tears. Gerbils with tumors tend to decline quickly, especially at her age, so there's a very good chance Cutie won't make it until we get home.

Thank you. Scotty had one of his first therapy appointments last Friday. It was for his vertigo. Unfortunately it failed, and we will be going back a week from Friday again. I hope that they get it next visit.

I am glad the package arrived. I am sorry that the seagull has a little mishap on his forehead. I must have been half asleep when I sent it, because I didn't notice it until you posted picture of the shirt!

I hope your family will have a great trip!

Thank you to Carol and Carina for the wonderful Mickey blanket. It's so soft and warm. It was so sweet of Carina to make the blanket for me.

Thank you to PurpleEars for the adorable Nemo seagull shirt. I love how the shirt even says Mine Mine Mine. The color of the shirt is so pretty and I like the style. I can't wait to wear it during the trip.

Thank you so much for the prayers Jackie.

Michele - Sorry the therapy failed. Praying it works next time.

Thank you Flora. The little mishap isn't that noticeable. Another Big Giver noticed a small section had pulled away on a shirt they sent, and told us about using fray check & fabric glue, and we were able to use it on this shirt too. Angel adores the shirt.


I had meant to include some other info in the post with Andrea's BG package. She told us that HeatherSue so generously shares her designs for the Big Gives. Thank you so much HeatherSue!

Thank you to jeffiner1978 for the beautiful pillow case and adorable flip flops. I love the fabric you chose for the pillow case and the way you wrote my name looks so fancy. I love the sparkly Mickey head on the flip flops. I can't wait to wear them on the trip.
