Feel super soon!!

Image- Super Day.

Morning everyone!!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I'm in to share a make with you today using Super Day. I made this card for the dream team blog hop but I got a bit worried incase my post didn't ping up and bodged up the hop if I had to stay in hospital! so instead I have scheduled her up for my monday Dream Team make (....because I should be home by now and able to press a couple of buttons if it fluffs up!! he he he!!!!!)

She is so fun I thought she would be perfect for a get well card!...bit like making myself one!! 

** Lou update**
Surgery day came on wednesday. I got a little nervous and needed some sedation to keep my BP happy before my op but it really helped and made me feel much more at ease...pretty much like half a bottle of whiskey in 5 little tablets!! lol!!! Scott took this photo just as soon as I got back from the recovery room.

All in all, I am doing pretty good. I am sooooo sore, but painkillers do work....they are my best little fluffy bunnies of happiness...!! lol!!!!!!! The worst part for me was this drain and the reaction my skin had to the hyposcrub wash.
Yesterday I decided to try on a few clothes and it was beyond hilarious...

yup! I am The Hunchtit of Notre Dame!!!!!

But all in all I am doing good peeps and plodding on in my normal Lou way!!! the Little Man took this piccy for me on friday morning ...
Friday lunchtime looked like this for wound review and my drain out and OH MY GOODNESS, that REALLY hurt!!!!! 
But I am really doing ok I think. Scott took me shopping for a couple more supportive bra's yesterday and the bruising is really sore....
But I think all in all Mini boob is doing ok. Mini kinder eggs and bassetts jelly bunnies are helping me to get through the whole thing quite nicely!! now I just need to heal and wait for the results to come in...oh and another wound review on friday....Lou inserts small scream...arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......!!!!!

Thank you so much for popping in
Hugs Lou xx


  1. Lou this is a wonderful creation, love all the details.
    This will also be perfect for one entry as an anything goes creation for our challenge below.

    PS All the best with the recovery xxx

  2. Sounds like you have a good positive attitude which is part of the battle. Eat your protein (lean) to help with the healing. Fluffy bunnies do help with the pain. Some people's thresh hold for pain is different. Mine is low. More bunnies for this Bunny sometimes. I'm glad y'all are taking pictures. It's a good reminder and a good way to document what it looked like and how it felt on day #___. Eat something sinful once in a while just because and cry when you need to. Keep calm and think about kicking someone if you need to. (Nobody in the family though) Okay, you really can't kick anyone. It'd be a bad influence and illegal. Stay Super Strong.

  3. Thank you, Lou. I mean a great BIG Thank you for dropping by my blog when actually you should just be resting and relaxing after your surgery. It's great to see you smiling in the photos. You are very brave and you set a wonderful example to others. I hope you aren't in too much pain and are feeling "super soon" - just like your delightfully pretty card! Hugs, Lesley x

  4. What a journey you're on pal! You've been so stoic and brave through all this. You are doing so well, skin wash reaction aside. Greg hated having his drain taken out after his GB surgery too, can be so painful. You are totally nailing this though and you just have to take one day at a time. I'm sending loads of love from NZ to keep you propped up through this all too. Love, love, LOVE your gorgeous card hunny. It's just the 'super' cutest!!! Love the colour combo and your fab CAS design. It's such a great reflection of what's going on for you right now too. Hugest (but gentlest) hugs hunny, Wends xoxo

  5. Lou, your artwork as always is amazing. I love that you still have a huge smile on your face despite going through such a sore and painful time lately. Your bravery is really inspiring. I hope that you will soon be able report that everything has healed well and that the prognosis for your complete recovery is very promising.
    Get well really soon xxx

  6. You are an amazing woman, I am sorry that you have to go through breast cancer! My mom fought this last year and is doing so well and you know what? Positive attitude is a MUST! Thank you for sharing your story with us all! It can't be easy! I kept a diary of what my mom went through more so because she never would have thought have it! I certainly think it can help! I hope you can stay positive through this all. I will be keeping you in my prayers and sending you healing vibes! Keep positive! Love and light, Nikki
