PASSING THE TIME.....


This is the foot of the bed and my feet in hospital sox (with grippers :-) passing the time by watching the ballgame (Tigers lost!)  I spent 24 hrs. in the hospital, because on Saturday I responded to a "perceived" stressful situation with distress--and experienced a tightness in my chest area and throat.  Being of the
age that I need to pay attention to symptoms, I told my Best-Half about it, and he would hear of nothing until I went to Emergency to get "checked out."   You don't just get checked out in Emergency--you get "Checked in."  Then they do stress tests, blood work, etc., etc, etc.....     Anyway, I passed the stress test with flying colors (thanks goodness for the fact that we excercise regularly at the "Y")  and got to go home 24 hrs. later.   I spent a lot of time pleading my case to go home--and fast!   I happened to have a w/c brush, and a limited little box of paints (no yellow! :-(    and also a little w/c postcard pack in my purse--so I amused myself by sketching as best I could while watching tv.

Sorry you were in the hospital, but glad you are okay. How fortunate to have some art materials with you-great job; even from a hospital bed. Now that's talent and ingenuity!

oh I'm so sorry I missed this post - I would have been praying for you!! I've been away from blogland for a week or so and have missed out on so much. Glad to hear you are okay!

Thanks, Marlene and Patti! I'm A-OK, I guess it's better to get "checked out" Fun to have my sketchpad (W/C Postcards) and portable paints and brush with me :-)
