Mo Mojo

One of the challenges I visit regularly is Mojo Monday.  It's a sketch challenge and the design team always has great samples.  While I was visiting the blogs I found a card request for a young girl who is ill and will be undergoing treatments for two years.  That reminded me of something that occurred when my daughter was that age.  She was covered in large black and blue marks.  There were so many of them that I was scared and called her doctor.  The doctor sent us for blood work which was a horrible experience made better by the very caring and patient nurses.  It took about 45 minutes of coaxing and cajoling and chasing around the room.  In the end it took 3 nurses and me to hold her down and still while they drew the blood.  After a couple days of anguish awaiting the test results we found out that she did not have leukemia, but she did have something else that I've since forgotten, maybe Fifth disease, that was easily treated.  We were lucky.  But that fear, has left an indelible mark in my memory.  Anytime I hear of a sick child I remember that experience and I say a prayer for the family for health and strength and a prayer of thanks that we were spared. 
I thought I knew where that request was posted but when I went back to put a link here I couldn't find it.  Hopefully the slip of paper I noted the address on is still on my desk.  I used the Mojo sketch to make a card for the girl.  This image was a freebie from Whimsie Doodles, there's usually a few there and they're all cute like this one.
