Nick got moved into a new brace yesterday after school! He had x-rays on Monday, and it was revealed that he’s progressing quite well. The patella is healing…the bone is fusing back together! (What a relief!) And next week he’ll begin physical therapy and start bending and exercising that knee again – hence this new brace that can adjust.
It’s a bit heavier than the one he had before, but it has air holes! His leg feels so much cooler. Thank you to all of you who have been sending your well wishes and prayers during these past 6 weeks since he broke his knee cap. They are working!
Last night the ice cream truck stopped in our neighborhood. On the way back from getting our treats, a dragonfly kept flying around Nick. I told him that that was a good sign. Dragonflies landing on you or at least wanting to be near you signify good luck. In fact, I was walking right beside him carrying his ice cream, and the dragonfly stayed just around Nick. Too cool!
And that reminded me that I really never shared photos of this version of my dragonfly closure card that I gave a peek at in my April 21st blog post video.
I used the Rooted In Nature stamp set and Nature’s Poem designer paper along with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits to make this version of the Dragonfly Closure Cards that I shared directions and measurements for on April 6th.
If you haven’t made a version of these cards yet, I hope you do soon. They are super simple to put together, yet they are very stunning when they are done. CLICK HERE for the post sharing details of how to make this style card.
I hope you all have a dragonfly filled day!
