Simply Less is More # 228

Hello There !
Well after missing a week and then being late with last weeks challenge I thought I`d get my skates on and get in early with my entry for the Simply Less is More Challenge.

It`s one layer week with the theme of;
It doesn`t have to be a house/home although it can be. It could be what home means to you.

Well I can`t imagine a home without my dogs, although a few less doghairs would be nice, and dogs sometimes need a home of their own too,

I found this fabby digistamp by Wendy Massey on Handmade Harbour.
I printed a sentiment along with the image and simply coloured it in with Promarkers, job done!

Ruby is back in LGI again. After having her strong chemo last week she struggled to get over the after effects, more so than usual. On wednesday she had a slight temperature and was advised to take her to our local hospital just for a check up.
She has had quite a nasty cough for a few weeks now and every time she has treatment the doctors panic and order scans or x rays but nothing shows up. Anyway after yet another x ray and numerous tests it showed that there was the beginnings of an infection somewhere and Ruby was put on a course of anti biotics.
I went to see her on thursday and she was very chatty and busy making `Speckled frogs` with the play worker and we were making plans, hoping she would be home today. Yesterday ( friday) morning further tests showed that Ruby`s oxygen levels were low and also her platelettes so she was transferred to Leeds.
More tests followed and late last night the results showed that Ruby now has Pneumonia.
It is in the early stages and the anti biotics she was prescribed in Hull are the right ones for this infection so they will already be working. Ruby herself is fine. Still very chatty and she`s eating well which is a bonus. She is on oxygen to boost her levels but it isn`t bothering her at all so all in all things are looking positive.
I just can`t help wondering what else this disease is going to chuck at her, poor kid has really been through the mill this time.

Just as an afterthought, although I make alot of CaS cards, I am leaning a bit more towards layers again. I posted a card yesterday that I made for my sister in law and tomorrow I have a project that I`m really proud of. Pop in and check it out, let me know what you think.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
