...actually Thursday...MAR 24

pay no attention to that date..above...it's taken me several days..to get this post DONE!
Our little Maxx is still struggling with his hip, leg pain...so after months and months and doctors and doctors...they did three MRI'S (hip, spine and brain) and found he has a large amount of inflamation on his pelvis...So next on the list of TO DO'S is a biopsy of his pelvis...

Had to be to the hospital by 6:30 am...so give papa a big hug....



and stop by the fish tank at the hospital...to say, "good morning, fishies"



Maxx got all tucked into his bed...WITH OUR HANDY MANNY SNUGGLE BLANKET...



..AND SOME distractive cartoons on TV..



and before you knew it...the procedure was over...(well it was ALOT LONGER FOR US TO WAIT...)

WAIT...DID I GET A SHOCK!!!??? (Maxx HATES, DESPISES AND PROTESTS...ANY 'SHOCKS' (SHOTS) heck WHO DOESN'T!)



nothing that a sweet orange popsicle...AND A POWER RANGER PHONE...





and a VERY MUCH DESERVED.....BRAVERY award...



can't fix...at least for NOW...

A BIG HUG...from Nurse Mary...



and we are HEADING HOME!



The biopsy showed that Maxx has a fractured pelvis!!!! No infection...His pelvis has healed...but not in the correct position, go figure, so a calcium deposit is irritating the muscle on his pelvis...hence...the continued pain...what they DON'T KNOW is why it hasn't healed...given the duration of time...so they are going to do SIX WEEKS of INTENSIVE THERAPY...ASKING FOR PRAYERS...TO BE CONTINUED....

Therapy office that they were referred to ...DOESN'T TAKE THEIR INSURANCE..so still searching for one that DOES...UGH....

Even with everything going on...I needed a bit of 'scheduled' art time..for me...so when Sweet Danielle..posted she was doing a NEST & birdie collage SWAP...I knew i saw it just in time....to get a chance to be in it...So I went off to the garden center for inspiration...and found a package of NESTING MATERIAL! It's all sterilized but natural! There were bits of:Feathers, string, cotton batting, hemp and aspen fibers! So i arranged the materials in a bowl and formed a nest with my fingers...then stitched and bound them all together in a nest fashion! I also added some vintage bits of lace...and some antique music...a couple of paper flowers...and a vintage locket collaged with an 1845 dictionary definition of SING!



And the companion piece is this birdie collage...created from all vintage original materials!
(old greeting cards, vintage music and an old nature print! and old lace)




well it's been a whirlwind of a week....hope the weather begins to turn soon...my chives, rosemary, basil, and lavender...and maddy's marigolds...are begging to PLAY SPRING...OUTSIDE!

BIG HUGZ TIL NEXT TIME!
