    Paul is 52, and the cure thanks to modern medicine is getting a stem cell transplant from a 28 year old male in Germany. Finally! They have been telling us since OCT that he was be in chemo in 4-6 weeks.

    He starts Tuesday with chemo, and Friday the 16th he gets hospitalized until his transplant of stem cells on The 22nd. Called zero day. He will stay in the hospital til his blood tests indicate his immune system can go outside the sterile environment.

    This swap will go on as planned. Dont you worry. I will swap on time or before if all sets arrive early. I wont be swapping later, so please do plan ahead.
    I do hope that the chemo and transplant go well and that there are no complications. Good to know your husband will be in the hospital until it is safe to be exposed to the outside world again. If, for any reason, you need to delay the return of our swap cards I think everyone would agree that we can wait. I will be sending lots of positive thoughts your way in the days to come!

    Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
    It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
    You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to TRASH.
    Might as well face it, you're addicted to TRASH!

    Either way, it's fine. I'm pretty much ready to go whenever. Most trash is in an envelope, ready to send.

    You go next prex! I don’t know someone was lined up! I’m still in the very beginning stages of gathering so you do #7 as planned and I’ll do # 8. Sound good?

    Ha!
    Maybe we need a signup list for hosting trash swaps.
    Just kidding.
    Trash/stash swaps have warped my mind.
    I keep seeing "trash" I want to hoard.
    I have a pile started just in case this craze lasts, and just in case I want to host again.
    It is cool that the different hosts are adding twists and ingredients to test our artistic mettle.
    I get a lot of mail at work so I have been hoarding all the envelopes.
    Maybe I need a quit hoarding patch (Trash-o-derm).

    OKay, Marie. Sounds good. Of course, we still need to get this one and katelnorth's done. JavaZarf is onto something.... trash-o-derm. I personally really like the challenge of using items sent to me, whether it is this or the PIF chunky with a twist. I find it stretches my creativity.

    You know I do wonder if we could start a trash to treasure hostess list, like they PAT list. It sure would keep us straight. Maybe one hostess a month. I will ask the moderators to see if we could start one.

    Grouchy kitty was so cute and I didnt want to take the best card. But then Zetti kitty was super cute too.
    I tend to pick the chunkier cards so I dont have to worry about damage in the mail. So that is how I roll.
