Friends & Flowers

I put this card together for sketch challege 141. This picture is the sketch we were to use from Splitcoast Stampers. I played with this Simply Scrappin kit alot during selebration time, but haven't gotten it out since so I decided to pull it out again for this sketch. The minute I saw the sketch I thought of the border stickers that came in Friends and Flowers Simply Scrappin' kit. I think it worked out okay. I am really enjoying getting into the card challenges again. I was doing them alot, but then lost my motivation this summer. Now that school has started I am back into it! Go figure!

Well, I have a major update about my chronic pelvic pain condition. I went to a conference sometime this year and met a doctor who treats people with this condition. He lived in Colorado and I live in Minnesota so he recommended a pain specialist in Minneapolis which is about a hour from where I live. I went to that appointment yesterday and it was a great experience!

He offered different drugs and also several different options for treatment that I haven't tried yet. Among the options were acupuncture, physical therapy, nerve block injections, and relaxation training. I am very excited to try some different meds and treatments! Alot of my friends and family have been there throughout this five year battle so I wanted to be sure to let you all know that I now have some more options to try!
