FRIENDS

Hi, it's late Monday night. Got Rick home today around 10 a.m. First we had to make some adjustments to a couple of shirts so he had something to wear. I cut a couple of knit shirts up the back and put velcro at the top so he could just put it on from the front. Then we had to rig the recliner, because that is where he has to continue to sleep for awhile so that he could work the lever. Of course the lever is on the right and so is the bad arm. Our brother-in-law Jim came over and we rigged a pvc pipe with a rope attached so he could work the recliner. We both slept for awhile this afternoon. I think I am coming down with a cold, and we both didn't sleep much the last two nights. Hopefully we can now just wait out the time it takes for him to heal. He is experiencing some pain, but is managing it with drugs. I made this card for the house mouse challenge. The chip board frame is by Tattered Angels, The creme collection. The little chicks were cut from a punch by fiskars. The doily lace border is Martha Stewart. And the ribbon is by May Arts. The word friend was cut on my new Circut, a walk in my garden cartridge. Have a great Wednesday. Until later..............
