Six days before our second son was born in October 1998 we went to the Liver Specialist for the results of David's liver biopsy.  He was told he had Hepatitus C and cirrohsis of the liver and would be dead in 3 years if he did not get a transplant.  Having been diagnosed HIV+ back in 1986 and already surviving those odds this was more heavy news at what was otherwise a joyous time.  He opted to take some new medicine called interferon as the odds of getting a transplant with his HIV status was slim. Recent tests have shown that the Hepatitis C has been totally eradicated and the cirrhosis stopped in it's tracks.  This photo was taken in early March 2014 with our secnd son - nearly 16 years later.  I would say that it is pretty obvious that David is certainly beyond lucky and that his good health is surely a blessing from God.  

I created this layout for March Page Drafts Sketch challenge.  

Here is the sketch:

And there were Twists - 

1. Do a layout about being lucky or being blessed.
2. Use the colors green and white; a St. Patrick's Day color scheme.
3. Use a graphic from s-day/

I met the criteria for all of the twists.  My title is a graphic from the pinterest page.

Here is my Layout:

I am also entering this layout into Sketches4All Cheryl's Challenge - use green and Word Art Wednesday challenge #125 Anything Goes.
