Happy Halloween Tilda! It's Blog Candy time!!

Well, here's just the cutest little Tilda witch and she's here to announce that Halloween is just around the corner and it's time for some blog candy!! It's gonna be a short contest with the winner announced next tuesday. There will be a winners on USA side and International Winner. The pics shown yesterday (top) is USA pack, second image is International pack. So just leave a comment and let me know if you are USA or International. So start leaving your comments here now!! I may start to get extra generous and have to pick a couple extra winners, so I included extra photos with just some additional goodies that I need to toss in to the prizes and when I want to send more prizes :) I also got the coolest new halloween trims with hanging bats, pumpkins...oh so dear.


So, why the candy? I am planning on two huge Doctor appointments, which is why I get in the celebration mood. The first one is friday afternoon, when I go to see the Oncologist Dr Donor. He's been pushing to have a bone marrow test, but I have been of course resisting. Due both to the painfulness and seriousness of that test. The last time I visited him my blood count turned out better for the first time in more years that I can recall. A real miracle! I hope for even better testing this time, which may finally put any thoughts of cancer testing to rest.


After that I go see my favorite doctor, the one who fixed my brain just over 1.5 years ago, epileptologist Dr Aboumatar. Hope to only hear good things from this doctor as the time after brain surgery goes on. We will see on next tuesday how much celebration I am feeling!! Truth is, I am feeling so wonderful that I will be celebrating no matter how the doctors appointments go. I know how much of my health I have been given back. I know how horribly sick I really was before the brain surgeries that saved me! Let's celebrate with some Halloween Joy!


Just leave a comment, would be great if there is an email so I can contact the winner(s), let me know if you are in the USA or International as I will pick at least one winner from each, probably more :) Also, I may sneak in some other shorter contests for a little candy during the week, so you wanna keep an eye on the postings each day!!


Cheers, Holley
