Happy Day - Teapot Tuesday

Well, I know it's Thursday, but I've been busy and didn't have the time to post this for Teapot Tuesday this week.   I'm doing this post at the office, and I forgot to bring my little book where I keep all my card information on products I use, so I'll have to update it later tonight.

Our cards this week are going to Becky Wilkie who was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML) in Aug 2012 and has since undergone several treatments of chemotherapy, radiation, medication & recently a Bone Marrow Transplant on 12/12/12. Mother of 6, grandmother to 3+, wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend to many.

Since her transplant, Becky is on an upward trend of recovery but every precaution still needs to be made to free her from infection since she has NO immune system right now. For 2 weeks after the transplant she was taken care of well at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, IL. She has a total of 100 days of isolation before coming home to those that love her. She needs to stay close to the hospital in case she gets ill so she has taken residence with our sister Kim at a special hotel in Oakbrook, IL. During her 100 days she is prescribed several medications to protect her from infections, lessen pain, stabilize the rest of her body and most importantly, prevent her body from rejecting the donated bone marrow.  Check out this post HERE if you want to play along and send a card to Becky.

Our challenge this week -  Americana is where it's at this week. So bring your flags, your eagles, your music and join the Back Alley Kats at the lake.Becky rides a bike herself so extra cookies for bringing a big loud bike to the party.  No music here, but lots of fun with a big loud bike and flags.
