Another Work in Progress, Another Hospital Stay

Flying in quickly this morning to share a photo of the latest work in progress - another arctic painting...

After seeing the video of Siku, the polar bear cub, I just had to paint one. Soooooo cute. Look for it on Etsy later today. :)

On the home front, it's back to the hospital for John, who is having another cardioversion, in conjunction with some tests and new meds. Assuming all goes well, he should be home by the weekend, and in the meantime, I have all these furkids to keep me company here at the house. :)

While it's tempting to bemoan the need for another procedure, we're just ever so thankful that this technology is possible! When I listen to his artificial valve ticking away, I can't help but think how blessed we are to live in a time where medical miracles like this exist.

I'm off to the hospital now, and as soon as he's settled, it's back here to paint. After the polar cub is finished, it's on to Baba Yaga!

Until next time,
♥ Carolee

My grandmother "ticked" from her pacemaker! Is that what you are referring to? I didn't know that any of them still made that sound! It brings back such fond memories! I hope all goes well for you and your family in 2012! Blessings!

Beautiful painting! Hope your husband is doing better and will have a healthy 2012. It is hard to maintain schedules and be creative with loved ones in hospitals. I had many years of that with my parents and now I realize I'm edging into the age group! Enjoy your creations and hope the New Year will be a healthy and prosperous one.
