Get Well Soon

What a day!
I was so worried about Schmitzy today when I saw blood oozing out of his wound.  I called the vet's office to speak to the vet tech that worked with us on Saturday but she was off.  They offered me an appt. so I took it.  Of course, after I got there and the vet saw him, he said this was normal and that he had made more progress than he had expected since Saturday.  What a big relief!  We aren't out of the woods yet.  He will have surgery next Tuesday and again at a later date.  This wound is like treating a very bad burn.  He can still become septic, at which point his chances for survival drop significantly.  But for now, I am optimistic and hopeful that this guy is a survivor.  I just came home from agility with Geena Bea and he greeted me like he hadn't seen me in a week, even though I have to treat his wound 5 times a day.  What love, we should all be so forgiving.

So, today I have a Get Well Card.  
It's not for Schmitzy, but perhaps it should be!

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday, isn't it a great sketch?  The DP is Echo Park Springtime and the stamp is Sick Lily from Pink Cat Studio.  I paper-pieced everything except her face and feet!  I used Marvelous Squares from Spellbinders, which is a lovely die set.  The rick rack die is from Papertrey and I punched out the sick kitty, colored with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Broken Box Stock - Get well
Totally Stampalicious - Paper Piecing
Tuesday Throwdown - Furry Friends
MarkerPop - pink
