It has been too long!

I have not been able to do much creating as of late. I was in the hospital several times since my last post, fighting Gastroparesis. I also had to have my feeding tube replaced over the Christmas Holiday.
I do have some cards that I completed, however I would like to be doing a lot more soon. Creating gives me a lot of joy and distraction from the pain of this disease. I hope you will join me in praying for a cure for the more than 5 million sufferers.
Thanks for peeking!

More hospital time...

I have had some more time in the hospital, about a month in total. I'm getting stronger and hope to be back to creating soon.
The holiday season is going to be a challenge for me. As most of my nutrition comes from a feeding tube, it is difficult to even smell all of the wonderful baking and cooking of the holidays.  Please visit for more  information on digestive tract disorders.

A little bit about GP

Remember the last time you had the stomach flu? People with gastroparesis and chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction battle severe nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue, weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration 24/7/365. It's like having the stomach flu for years. Help us find a cure! or

Much to share...when I am a bit better.

I just got home from the hospital tonight. Its been a rough 2 1/2 weeks fighting gastroparesis. Three surgeries later I am back home. Now I REALLY want to get out the word on GP!  I hope to be feeling better soon so I can participate in some of the blog hop happenings and get back to creating...its such good distraction!

This blog is coming to you from Julie's husband Erik. Julie is currently in the hospital. Her feeding tube became dislodged and was sitting in her stomach. It is not supposed to be there. She received a new one but it was not placed correctly. They will now put a second replacement in. Please pray for her. She will be back soon

MPS day 2 of Countdown to Karlee

Today's challenge at My Pink Stamper is to make something cute. I think this card with the little gem for the "cherry" on top of the birthday cake is pretty cute. I used a TPS stamp for the sentiment and the Just Because cart for the cake. The ribbon and paper are from my stash, which I have a lot of from my hoarding days. I hope I can figure out where some of the supplies came from! LOL

Did you know that approximately 5 million Americans, including children, suffer from gastroparesis? See for more information.

Thanks for peekin'!
