Time for Change.

So, here's a hilarious stamp set that I got from Unity Stamps a while back.  I know that last week I told you about my appointment with Dr Aboumatar.  I also took him this card & envie wrapped in plastic with a note on top that said "Give this to those patients who are afraid."  I am sure he got a chuckle out of that. I doubt he would actually give it to a patient, but having been one of his patients, all I can tell those other patients is "CHANGE is a good thing"
Often time by the time a doctor is TELLING you that surgery is necessary, esp when it is brain surgery, it's necessary.  Doesn't make it easier to say yes though.  Sometimes his staff calls me to let me know that they have a patient who would like to talk to someone who has been through surgery.  I give them my number so they can call.  I know the process before surgery is daunting but the reward after is amazing, more than you can really imagine.  It was more than I ever dreamed I would get.  I am so thankful that I didn't hesitate to go through the change and that my husband was 100% at my side the whole time along with my friends at church. 

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Bazzill, Neenah); Image (Unity Stamps); Ink (Memento, Colorbox Chalk); Bling (Hobby Lobby); Die Cuts (Spellbinders Nestabilities); Ink (Copic Markers); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All, Glue dots);
