A Freebie for all

Hey folks,

It's late but I can't sleep tonight. A bad case of nerves over my son's surgery tomorrow and shear aggravation because two ignorant pirates decided it was okay to share my kits again today. I see a vent post on my soap box coming later tonight so check it

Just wanted to let everyone know that Freddy's surgery is scheduled for first thing tomorrow morning. The plan is to remove his entire colon and build a bag to replace the colon with his small intestine. This bag will not be attached tomorrow. He will have to wear the outside colostomy bag for the next three months to make sure he doesn't set up any infection from the surgery. They will then do a second surgery sometime in August to attach the inside bag made from his small intestine.

Hopefully this will take care of most of his problems with the exception of his liver. They said that the liver condition will continue to progress even with the colon being gone. But getting him off the immuno-suppressing meds, blood thinners, and the tons of other meds for the colon will be a welcome relief.

I think my biggest fear is that they will open him up, find the cancer has spread, and just sew him up and send him home. My family has horrible luck with cancer. My Dad died at the age of 48 with it and I've watched as my grandparents, aunts and uncles have all died from it since. The doctors have all told us it is a hereditary form that runs in our family. From all the research that I have done, I tend to believe them.

Anyway, I wanted to post another freebie for you from my new kit "Girl Power" before I end up at the hospital for who knows how long. Thank God I have my daughter here to look out for my other boys because I won't leave the hospital until I know Freddy will be okay.

I made a quick tag with the freebie frame. Please keep in mind that all of the elements in the tag are NOT in the freebie. Only what is pictured below is included in the freebie.

The kit is available exclusively in my store:

Here is the freebie:

It's available in scrapper and tagger size. Scrapper is approximately 3100x2700 pixels and the Tagger size is approximately 800x700 pixels.

First I'd like to say I'm sorry to hear about your son, and that I hope all goes with his surgery.

And thank you for the frames. I have teen age granddaughters that will love them! :)
