THanks for all your thoughts and prayers. After a bunch of tests and ultrasounds, x rays, and a CT scan it came back that he does not have cancer SO WAHOOOOO. WE still don't know what caused him to have the elevated ESR and fevers up to 105, but I am very happy just knowing that it isn't cancer. We are still going through the process of trying to figure things out after spending the last 3 1/2 days at Army hospital. We have a few follow ups left but after that I think it should be back to life as usual. Just wanted to let you all know.

Breathing a big sigh of relief for you! I'm glad it's not cancer, and still hoping that it's nothing else serious.

That's great news. I've thought of your little guy several times over the past days. It's so good to hear he's not facing such a horrible battle.

that's great news, I was so sad when I read this post, and then relieved when you posted that it wasn't cancer.

Rejoicing with you over the good news! When one of my sons was young, he was really sick and the doctor was gong thru a list of things it could be. It would've been nice if she'd said them in her head, not out loud! Things like rheumotoid arthritis, leukemia....panic attack coming on. Turned out he had mono. What a relief! Good luck as you forge ahead for answers.

freddyfl: I hope all is going well for you and your family. I am going to try to post a pic to continue your fantastic idea of the "Creative Cookie Club".
My favorite book when I was a little girl was "The Boxcar Children" by Gertrude Chandler Warner. If you haven't read the book, it is about four orphaned children who make their home in an abandoned boxcar. As a little girl, I thought it would be so cool to live in a boxcar, but I didn't want to be an orphan icon_redface.gif If my attachment doesn't work, I'm going to post it in the cookie gallery.

Wow, all these cookies are so impressive! I have been so busy with Easter cookies that I did not get to get in on this months cookie of the month but will in May. I am a school teacher and teach first grade so I had LOTS of ides for cookies but needed to do Easter bouquets for a fundraiser for my son. When will we know what the theme is for May or have I missed the post on it?

freddyfl, I am so sorry your son is sick but so glad it is not cancer. I tried to get on your face book page but was unable to. I am also on face book, if you PM me we can hook up on it also.

Thanks to all those who are getting this cookie of the month going!! I LOVE it!!

Lot's of ground to cover in this post...

freddyfl - So glad to hear that it's not cancer. Being in healthcare I know the struggle you're dealing with in not knowing. Saying a prayer that all turns out well for you and your son.

Pebbles - The Boxcar Children books were absolute favorites of mine as a child. Love your cookies!!!

Hi everyone,
I am new to the forums. I absolutely love this idea and I looooooovvvvveeee baking and decorating cookies. People at my work ordered a ton from me for Christmas. I haven't really uploaded any pics yet, but I will soon and I'm excited to join this forum.
freddyfl - I just want to say that I was on the edge of my couch reading this forum. I was so relieved when I read your post that it wasn't cancer. I felt like it was my own son that I was worrying about. I'm also so glad at all the support on this forum. I hope his health gets back to normal soon. icon_smile.gif
Can't wait to start participating.

Pebbles, love those books and love those cookies! The campfire is amazing and your boxcar is perfection! icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

O.k. I will admit, I don't clearly remember the dog. I'll just have to go back and read them all over again!

freddyfl, I'm so glad to hear that it wasn't cancer!

Pebbles13, your cookies are great! I too loved the Boxcar Children book. The cracked teacup is just right. As kids, we didn't have a boxcar handy, so we tossed the poor dog out of his house and turned that into a short lived clubhouse.

Cindy - That is so funny that you turned a dog house into a boxcar icon_biggrin.gif I loved that book so much as a little girl, I just had to pay tribute to it. The cookies were so fun to make.
Thank you all for your compliments! Is this going to continue next month, and if so what is the theme for May?

Freddlyfl - I just got back from being out of town and was getting caught up in the forums and my heart just sank when I heard of your original thoughts that he might have cancer. I could feel the lump in my stomach. I am so glad to read that is not indeed the case and wish him the best for a full and speedy recovery!

Pebbles13 - LOVE those cookies (as is evidenced by the PM I sent you!) Fantastic job!

I read "The Velveteen Rabbit" to my daughter last night and bawled away. I can't read that, "Rocking Horse Christmas", "The Giving Tree", "Where the Red Fern Grows" without crying. There are just so many wonderful books out there! Good grief - I even choke up at the coffee commercial at Christmas! I am really enjoying seeing what everyone is coming up with! Such talent!
