Update and a card at last....

Hi all, life has once again taken over... my grandson who is 5 weeks old today was admitted to hospital Wednesday evening, he has been projectile vomiting and is not gaining weight, he has in fact only put on 1.5lb since he was born. His grandad (on his dad's side) had the same problem as a baby and needed an operation to right it, it is hereditary so is possible this is what my grandson has.... so Wednesday night they had a Surgical Team and a bed on standby in London, but typically, after being put on a drip stopped being so sick, so was sent home yesterday evening with medicine and an ultrasound appointment for 2 weeks time. Unfortunately overnight he started being sick again and out of 5 feeds, he projectile vomited 3 times and in the end was continually crying as he was so hungry, my poor daughter has not slept in days. Today he went back to hospital and as I type he should be having his ultrasound scan, depending on what they find depends on what happens next, she is moving from hospital to hospital at the moment as the scan as it a different hospital to where he was admitted. My other grandson who is 17 months old thinks he lives here at the moment, and he is also not very well (those awful colds going around at the moment) and really needs mummy and daddy at a time like this, but he is enjoying playing with my 6 and 8 year old, and daughter is happy he is worn out when he goes home... so fingers crossed that if there is anything wrong they will see it on the scan, if not, that he will stop being sick and start gaining weight....

Finally got around to making a card today, but only a simple one as I left my 16 year old in charge of my grandson whilst I did it... Recipe:- Patterned Paper - Stampin' Up! To The Nines Speciality PP. Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Sage Shadow, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. Stamp Set:- Season of Joy, Circle of Friendship, Trendy Trees. Punches:- Stampin' Up! Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1" circle, Eyelet Border. Misc:- Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds, Glue Pen.
And here is what it looks like opened....
Hope you have a great evening girls... xx

oh what a worrying time for you and your family. my son was the same and was diagnosed with reflux (because the flap which usually holds the food in your tummy wasnt formed properly) and was given medication to control it. then when he turned one, it came time to decide if he needed the op or not, and miraculously it cleared up by itself almost overnight! he still has a weak stomach but nothing like the projectile vomiting.
hugs to you all, and i hope he turns out to be fine
