Yesterday my seventy-seven year old father had open heart surgery to fix his aortic valve, aoratic aneurysm, do a by-pass of a 70% blockage, and such. I didn’t get much sleep the night before as the hospital is 45 minutes away and he had to be there at 5:30 am, which meant, we, his entourage, had to as well.
He looked so much better at this point of the day than he did when he’d first arrived at the hospital that morning.
I won’t go into all of that today because today is art day. There was no Diva Challenge at the time I am posting this, which is just fine because I’m quite tired.
I took a big bag of art supplies with me to the hospital, as the surgery was to take 5-7 hours and we were there about 2 and a half hours before he even went into surgery.
I’m crocheting a minion blanket for my two year old grandson for his Christmas stocking. Here’s how far I got on it while in the waiting room.
It is still arching and that is frustrating but I’m just pressing on because I’ll never get it finished if I keep pulling it all out.
I also took some pens, pencils, markers, papers, tiles and so much more with me. When surgery was over, I attempted to start my first ever gem while in the ICU waiting room.
Yeah, I didn’t get very far. Daddy was waking up and we were able to go in and see him, two at a time. That was the end of my art for the day.
I’ll write more about my day on Friday, since this is supposed to be about art. Sorry it’s up so late. I got home from staying overnight in ICU with a migraine headache around noon and went right to bed.
Until next time, God bless,
