Okay gang, I've had 5 treatments since my multiple sclerosis diagnosis (that rhymed) and I have been getting acclimated, I have MS but it doesn't have me. If you want to check in on my status I do update my other blog with how things are going, it's here. I also have a summer greeting for you at my third blog here.
As for the photo: I made it before Christmas, I call these contraptions Ginatures - a merger of my name and "picture". This was the first one I made, I made more of them afterwards - I'll put them up on the blog later. I did not hammer or staple gun myself so they were a success! Anyway it's got fabric, two rows of ribbon (one with a button on top) and lace. I look forward to hearing from you all!

Gina, I just checked in to your health blog update about you and your husband. It sounds like you are learning to deal with your MS, but I am so sorry that you even have to deal with it. You are so young. But as all the others have commented you have the right attitude which is a great part of the battle. Thank you for popping in on my blog. I wish you well and for more good days than bad. God bless, Corline
