Super Heroes

Hello Dear Friends;

Thank you all for your sweet comments and well wishes, they do mean a great deal. We got Jim’s test results, I’m afraid they didn’t show anything of significance so nothing will be done for him. I do believe his doctor is being far to conservative with his treatments. He has another appointment on the 21st at which time I plan to speak to the doctor regarding it. I do realize increasing some of his medications can have some unfavorable long term side affects but we all know with end stage emphysema there is no long term in his future. I want him as comfortable as possible in the time he has left. Whatever happens we will just make the best of life as it is.

When I saw these little Valentine trading cards and a box of birthday candles in the discount bin marked 75% off I had to have them. I immediately pictured birthday cards for little boys. What little boy doesn’t love Spider Man or Transformers and since they are lenticular I’m sure they will be fascinated by the changing figures as well. The cards only measure 2 ½” X 1 ½” so I needed a big sentiment, this Studio G $1 stamp fit the bill and I believe goes well with the candle. I’ve made several of these for a craft fair.

Same cards different angle.

Have an Amazing Day!

    Keep fighting Jim's corner Bernie - I do agree about you wanting for comfort for Jim, and no doubt he does too.

    had Emphysema and like you I fought to the end. I agree with

  4. Great for the boys, that's for sure...cute images.
    There's no need for your husband to have to suffer any more than he has to so hang in there with the doctor/doctors and make sure he gets whatever is necessary to keep him as comfortable as possible. You're both in my prayers.
