moving on to the healing stage

Bill came through the 3-hour surgery smoothly, with all blockages repaired. Experienced a lot of pain afterwards in the ICU, but that's to be expected. Today he will be moved to a regular room and begin the long road of "rehab".

Knowing I'd be in this waiting room quite a while, I had thought to get in some practice sketching people. But knowing they were each there during a hard time in their lives, I didn't have the heart to draw any of them. One lady even asked if I was drawing her (sounding a bit worried) --- I assured her that I wasn't and even showed her the sketch.

I have felt no problems sketching people in other situations without asking their permission . . . . but somehow in a surgical / ICU waiting room, it seemed like an invasion of privacy.


  1. I love your sketches, and also glad to hear that everything went well. Thanks for sharing.

  2. wow three hours..So glad to hear he came thru all right. I imagine the sketching helped pass the time. Nicely done. Hoping for a quick recovery.

  3. Oh, Vicky, I'm glad, that everything is going well. Keeping you in my prayers.

  4. Thanks, Cris and Jana! I seemed to be unable to sketch at first (in shock maybe?) but am slowly getting back to it some.
