:: Sleep well Mom ::

But it is light that counts above everything. Not colored light, but color that gives off light–radiance! — Robert Motherwell, 1915-1991 I received a phone call this morning at 4:00 am & it was my sister telling me that my 91 year old Mom had fallen & had just been rushed to the hospital. I dressed quickly, cancelled my classes for the day, ordered a coffee at Tim Hortons & drove down to be with her. Two broken ribs, probably a head concussion & alot of dizziness, she is still there but that is the best place for her at the moment. As she fell asleep a few times, I took out my small Moleskine Sketchbook & drew the people surrounding the Emergency Ward. Difficult to capture people when they keep moving non stop. Sleep well Mom. Paper: Moleskine Sketchbook Pen: Pigma Micron 01 Location: Valleyfield Hospital. 20160503_receptionist_jane-hannah-drawing2 20160503_nurses_jane-hannah-drawing.jpg

    Hope your mom recovers quickly. As a nurse, may I suggest good pulmonary care because of the broken ribs. Pneumonia is her enemy, not the broken bones. I’m sure I’m not the only one of your friends and readers who will have you both in their minds and hearts. Patsye

      Thank you Patty for this info — her doctor said the same thing. I will monitor this. Her dizziness worries me too! She cannot stand up at the moment because of it…
