Papertake Weekly for Abbie and some good news!!

There is a fab sketch over on Papertake Weekly this week done by the lovely Dawny P, I took the opportunity to use it to make Abbie's birthday card off Oli. I can't believe that this time next week my little princess will be 3, it still seems like yesterday that she was in BCH having her op with her life hanging in the balance. I cannot believe how far we have come since those terrible days. Anyway I have used some fabby new papers from the DCWV spring glitter stack which are DB sided and are just delish, a really cute Hanglar image which I think looks just like her, and finished off with 3 little primas and some gem stones.



Well we were at the hospital yesterday for our bi monthly check up for Abbie, and it was good news again. The anitbiotics that she has been on for the last couple of weeks seem to have done the job and her chest was clear yay!!!. Their is slight concern over her weight & height as she hasnt really put much on or grown much since the last time, but not so much that we really need to be concerned over. We have to try to get her to eat a bit more, and also try and cram as much high cal stuff into her as poss. (If you dont know people with CF cannot digest & break down their food and so they have to have these granuals to help them and they also have to eat very high fat & high cal food as even with these granuals (creon) they still dont take enough cals in. They basically have to have double the amount a normal person would just to try and keep their weight stable). They also told us about some new developments on her physio, they are now trying out a new and very fun way of doing it. We are going to be given one of those huge exercise balls and Abbie will have to have her physio on that, as well as doing other exercises with it to help get her lungs working hard. Well they had one in the hospital and she loved it, her physio had her on the ball showing us all the different things and she just had a great time. They also took piccys of her on the ball which are going to be used on a poster and newsletter to promote it all, and she really gave them some fab poses she just loves having her piccy taken.

Lyndsey that is such fabulous news!
I can't imagine what you go through on a daily basis. But, how great that things are looking up. I think those doctors are just heros in our world! That ball sounds brilliant as I have to get into all sorts of positions to clear my lungs so I can see how that would work!
Your card is just beautiful! I agree she is just like Abbie so sweet! She will love this beautiful card.
hugs

Hi Lyndsey! Firstly thank you for your lovely comment about Pepsi, it really means a lot to me to know people care :) I'm so glad to hear all went well with Abi's check, her new physio sounds like fun. She'll have to eat lots of choccy eggs to help her with her weight, Easter is just round the corner. Love your card too, such a cute Tilda and fab work with the papers x
