Can I get a WOOP WOOP?!

Today is a great day for me! After 25 days of IV antibiotic therapy, I am DONE!!!!!!!!!! The nurse made it even more official when she showed up to remove my PICC line (the IV thingy). WOOOO HOOOOO!!! I am so happy! Things are definitely starting to get back on track. I have an MRI scheduled for Monday and then a followup the next Monday and hopefully I can start to put this behind me. What an experience this has been.

I haven't done too much this week on the scrapfront....I did go scrappy shopping yesterday at HL - spent double what I had budgeted...oh well..lol I have some ideas flowing - hopefully I can get them onto a page.

Since I don't have any layouts to share this week, thought I would share a recent picture of myself. So this is me right now...I'm very pale I guess because I was so sick - my roots are shining - and my face is very swollen and round due to the steroids I have been on for the last month. (it's actually more swollen now...) But this is me - and I am glad to be here..my outcome could have been so much worse than it was.

Hope you have a scrappy weekend!
