Halloween Box

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Another rainy day here in PA. 
I guess it's a great day if your a duck!
I suppose I will be happy about it since we all got to sleep in this morning! Shawn included.
The last several days have been stressful and sleepless so the cloudy, dreary weather helped us to stay in bed longer and get that much needed rest.
We survived Ryan's procedure yesterday. All went very well.
I cannot say enough about his doctor! Absolutely ONE in a MILLION!
He took such good care of Ry and being that we have to travel almost an hour to see this doctor, he really makes it all worth it with his kind heart & compassion! 
2 biopsies were done to look for Celiac Disease and one for a small ulcer.
No cancers, tumors or polyps were found.
Diagnosis: Gastritis.
Kelsey also has this so she knows the pain & sickness that comes with it.

Today is a new day of learning to deal with one more thing on our lists.
I have one with Diverticulitis (Shawn) and one now with Gastritis and learning to prepare foods for them will be a real joy! We may have to revert to eating scrambled eggs for every meal! LOL
Doctor suggested a low residue diet for Ryan while Shawn is on a high fiber diet.
I am lost in between....

I have to tell you a funny from yesterday.

We were paged to go to Ryan's recovery room shortly after he came from the OR.
He was wide awake and happy to see us.
He looked at me and said....

Your next Mom!

Haha....we all got a laugh from that!
Yes, I am long over due for a colonoscopy and have been hiding from it.
Shawn had his at 49 and Ryan had his at 31. I am 52 and want no part of it!

So anyways....it's a new day and I was suppose to get my house cleaned today but Shawn is home and Ryan is still sleeping and I hate to wake him. 
I am going to share another Halloween Treat Box that I made with the Toil & Trouble DSP.
It is the same as the one I shared last week that Angie Juda created.

As you can see I used the witches paper on this one.
Gorgeous Grape is the cardstock color. It's perfect for Halloween!
This box will go to Kelsey with either a few bucks inside or a gift card along with candy,

Project Details:

Stamps: Spooky Cat (retired)
Ink: Momento Black, Gorgeous Grape
Cardstock: Gorgeous Grape, Whisper White, Basic Black, Toil & Trouble DSP
Accessories: Oval Layering Framelits, Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon, Glue Dots, Clip from Micheals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Here is the link if your interested in making this style of box.
They are fun and really do hold quite a bit.

My thoughts today....

Yes indeed!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

What a cute treat box with those great colors and papers! You are something else with your treat packages :) I'm so relieved and thankful that Ryan is finally diagnosed and it's nothing more serious! Hopefully he will now be on his way to a complete recovery and no more illness!! Love your quote for today, it's the truth! Hang in there - big hugs

So glad you had a great doctor and got some answers. You'll have to fix everyone a different meal for dinner now. LOL Love these treat boxes, and the grape color just pops.

Another yummy treat box! Glad Ryan's test went ok glad that he had a good Dr. those seem to be getting harder and harder to find these days. He's right Mom now it's your turn! The test is nothing....its the prep aka drinking the darn liquid before hand. My Dr. lets me do the 2 day prep...drags it out but I'd never make it if I had to down that stuff in 1 afternoon. I'm an extremely gaggy person.

Not sure how I missed this post, but these boxes are quite bewitching. Yes, I agree with Ryan. You need to get checked. Waiting for the bad storms we are expecting tonight. Work was hot and gross. Hope you got some rest.
