Sunflower -Be Happy Card with pocket Tammy Tutterow Designs

Hello friends! I'm still blogging from my phone and sharing project I had finished and photographed befor the accident, so bear with me ;)
This is another Tammy Tutterow Designs stamp and a spellbinders Die. Super fun little card with a pocket die.

Every day the chest and back soreness improve a little. Of course never as much as I hope. The doc said it could be three months before the soreness is gone. That's a bit depressing but I have to remember to just be thankful to the seatbelt and airbag for doing their job.  Mid week I was still having a lot of pain and Dan was concerned about a hard bump at the top
Of my sternum. He had already made a doctor appointment by the time I got up. They did more X-rays and found large hematoma and a fractured rib that must have been missed initially. Both just have to take care of themselves, so home we went. 
Tomorrow we go back to the Orthopedic surgeon in Omaha about my leg. I'm telling you what, just getting in the car now... scares me. 
Dan goes back to work on Tuesday, so new challenges ahead. It was great that he had three weeks vacation time banked, because he has been doing everything for me! I test myself a little at a time, so that I know what I can do when he goes back to work. This is a pretty different role for him... as I'm usually he caregiver . He jumped right in and has done so great. He even gives me the shots I have to have in my stomach each night (to prevent blood clots). He's better at it than I am.  I guess sometimes you just don't know what you have in you, until you are tested. I'm very thankful he's been so great with all this. 

I have been trying to upload some photos from my phone but for some reason I'm having trouble :( so I'll give it a whirl later. Thank you for all you healing thoughts, wishes and prayers !!!

❤️ Vic

Your pocket card is so sweet and summery. I love it!
Prayers for your recovery Vicki! I can't even imagine how scary it is to just get into a car, following an accident like that. Even though you have a long recovery ahead of you, I thank God that your injuries are not worse. I am SO thankful for that!
Prayers for you and your family as you all go through this journey to a full recovery together. <3

Lovely card! So sorry about your accident - how frightening! Glad you're healing but know that you must be real anxious for the healing to go faster. Try to take it easy as much as you can. Praying for full recovery.
