MIA

Hi everybody. January was not kind with me. I know I've been gone awhile, but I have a very good reason. A simple medical procedure on January 29th went horribly, terribly wrong landing me in ICU for 3 days. I spent another 7 days in the heart and lung recovery wing of the hospital until I was released last Saturday. I am slowly regaining my strength, but it is an uphill climb and it will be several months before I am back to my old self.

I must be getting better though, because my fingers have started itching to draw again. Getting the rest of the body to cooperate is still a struggle. Soon, though, I hope to be able to sit at the drafting table long enough to work through a painting.

Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and I can't wait for you to come back when you have recovered and gotten strength once again. You are missed my Darling. Great some rest young lady.

Wow! Poor you! I hope you're on the mend, and that you'll just rest, and pamper yourself until you're all better. Poor thing!

Just rest, and get your strength back. We all hope you'll feel better soon!

Hi,
I'm new on the blog here, but I also send my well wishes.
It's a good sign that you were able to come here and post and that you want to sketch!
Take care, and I look forward to getting to know you better on here, when you are better and up to posting more.
