I did managed to finished an article in between, which was at the last date of the deadline. I miss being creative!!! I have to make a lo for cherryArte by Friday and I started this morning and stopped, every time I went upstairs and looked, added something, stopped, etc. I can say it is almost done now, took me all day to make one lo, argh!

(Wendy I am copying your text since I am not up to sitting much longer behind my computer, hope thats ok?!)
I found out that a fellow scrapbooker's family is going through something just awful! Jen Gallacher's 13 year old son Joey was diagnosed with colon cancer back in December. He has had multiple surgeries and chemo but unfortunately his cancer has spread. He is currently receiving radiation and was given a short amount of time to live.
Here's the most current update on his condition, Jen posted this on 2peas:
I wasn't sure I should post this on such a great day for tooting and
sharing all the great news, but since I have had so much love and support from
the Peas I thought I'd better. Joey was released from the hospital last Tuesday.
His cancer is considered terminal, and they believe they have done all they can
for him. We are devastated. Parents should raise their children to live and have
good lives not prepare them for what I'm going to have to do. He was heartbroken
and is NOT ready to give up. That makes me happy, and we will do whatever we can
to help him with that. He's receiving radiation for his latest tumor in his
rectum and has quite a bit of pain. He had lots of moments of delirium in the
hospital. So scary! He hasn't eaten food in a month but receives nutrition
through his IV so that's all right. He sleeps most of the time, which is
probably both the cancer and the morphine. I miss talking to him and seeing him
enjoying life, but I don't want him to suffer. I'm just so grateful for the
support and love of all of you. Thank you for your positive thoughts, e-mails,
prayers, and gifts and cards. We have felt stronger than ever and I know why. I
will let you know how things go in the future. They give him weeks to months to
live. He might just hang on a little longer, cute boy! I'll take whatever time I
can get. ----Jen Gallacher
A benefit fund has been started for the family and if you could take 2 minutes to please donate some money for them I know it would be greatly appreciated. Here's a link with all the information: Benefit for the Gallacher Family
So far the money that is raised is over 7,700 dollars which will help them tremendous with the huge medical bills that they have to deal with. When you do donate(through paypal) you make a change on some fantastic donations made by other scrappers and company's.
So I will stop complaining about feeling sick, because I get sick to my stomach when I think of the situation that Jen is in.
Thanks for listening!
