He was diagnosed with Grave's Disease and Myasthenia Gravis. He has been home from the hospital for several weeks and is finally able to go back to work part time. He's still being fed from a tube in his stomach, but he is also able to swallow some things, and the list of foods he can swallow is growing.
I couldn't have made it without his family's willingess to take over with his 24/7 care and give me some rest.
Now I'm back at work full time and enjoying being in my new classroom with my students. We're getting geared up to start making the items for our craft fairs, and I can't wait to post some of them here on my blog.

Once again I used Basic Black for the background paper. The photo mats are Whisper White and Rose Red. The large flowers are Regal Rose.
The hostess knew some of her friends weren't big stampers (imagine that!), so I focused on the quality of our cardstock and our fun punches.
I'm planning to use these pages for a field trip my 7th graders took to the Planetarium, but I offered them as an option for those with little boys. I used Basic Black for my background paper, Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie for my photo mats, and Pacific Point for the planets.
These pages would look really sharp with our new in-colors: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, and Bermuda Bay!
