So we're back at mom's apartment. Yesterday was spent at the hospital, with her having her appendix out. For me, it was time spent at a variety of "hurry-up-and -wait" activities that pretty much lasted all day. After I had read magazines, a book that didn't hold my interest, had lunch in the hospital cafeteria, and chocolate and caffeine from the hospital gift shop, I decided it was time for a quick sketch right where I was sitting. Surely they would be calling me back to the recovery room soon.
Any way, just as I was putting away my paints & little sketchbook, they called me back. Today mom is doing pretty well, at least so far so good. It will take a bit of time for total recovery. So we'll take one day at a time & hope all goes well.
