Going Up Boy..........

Slider Card Tutorial- Dawn's Stamping Thoughts

Morning everyone! I'm in for you today with such a fun card. I absolutely loved making this one. I popped a link to the tutorial up there ^ under my photo incase anyone else wanted to have a go with this card base! 

And of course! Going Up Boy was just the perfect image for the job with his little balloon carrying him and his sock monkey off on an adventure!!

Here is the card open! eeeeeeeeeep!! so cute with that little hidden birthday message! I love it!!

And this is how he opens up! so cute!! I do love a super fun card!!

So my 2nd dose of chemo didn't go exactly to plan on friday!! I had a bad reaction to it after just 24mls and it had to be stopped while they quickly gave me some piriton and extra steroids to sort me out.I have never felt so yucky. I couldn't breathe properly and my head felt like mush and the nurses told me my face was a glorious shade of cherry red! but they were so super in sorting me out I was ready to go again after 30 minutes rest. My vein refused to flush at the end of my chemo and the nurse was worried it might blow if she tried anymore which would mean chemo drugs in all the wrong places so they removed my cannula.

My veins are so feather thin I am having to have a Picc Line fitted in a couple of weeks. I'm a little nervous of that but it will be so much easier for everyone in trying to get me sorted because trying to get a vein to get chemo meds and IV's in is quite a trauma! he he!!! so the Picc Line will go into the top of my right arm for the next 4 doses of chemo. It's not too long so I'll just get those big girl pants pulled right up and get on with it!!

To stop me getting sick like last time (...hopefully!!!) I have been given some special injections to inject myself with for 7 days to make those little white cells boost for me instead of deplete too much like last time. I was a little nervous about doing them but pulled up my big girls pants and went for it! Pinch an inch, 45 degrees, push it in and the job is done! Go me!! First nivestim injection done! 💉
So I am learning new skills each time!! he he!! Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx
