Waiting and Praying!


We are home.....I know some of you follow this site for my "stamping", but some also follow my son's progress as well. Ethan had several tests/scans today. He had a cat scan, bone marrow biopsies and a MIBG scan. We don't know anything yet, so as my title says, we are "Waiting and Praying!" These tests tell us what our next steps are. Right now we have tickets to head to Philadelphia next week, but that can change in the blink of an eye. Our lives are always subject to change at the last minute. Hopefully we'll know something tomorrow. We just keep praying for good results!

I don't have any cards or scrapbook pages to share. I do have a few pages that I haven't taken any pictures of yet....just haven't had time this week. I did get to stop off at Michaels on the way home this evening and got a new stamp set....it's so cute. I can't wait to play with it. I'm sure I'll be stamping some tomorrow....it definitely helps to keep my mind off of things.

I'll be back on Satuday morning with Lauren's sketch. What do you think of me making scrapbook pages or are you wanting to see more cards? Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Alicia,

I litterally was just thinking about you and Ethan not 5 minutes ago, and wondering how things are going and if you have any news yet!!!!

I will say a prayer right now and continue on tomorrow I hope you hear somthing fast, and that it is good news!!!!!

Oh Alica this must be a horrible wait!!!

Hang in there!

I love seeing your scrapbook pages, but I love your cards too, but it is nice to see a way to use the sketches for somthing other than a card too!!!

I'll be keeping you and Ethan and Hubby and Ava in my thoughts and prayers I am praying for the best news ever!!!!!

Oh my...I don't know how you do it. I'm praying for good results also. He's such a sweet little boy with a light in his eye...it's hard to fathom what he has been through and is going through. It's sad knowing that such a young boy has such a big disease to deal with. He must be a strong soul...

I never thought of making scrapbook pages from the sketches, and thought that it was a clever idea when you did it! I think either is fine...gives inspiration to two different audiences.

God bless...and safe travels if you end up going to Philadelphia. I'll keep praying for you all.

I think you are a mama who has her priorities in order. We can see cards or pages later, right now you are right to be thinking of the kids.

Praying all goes well. {{{hugs}}}
