This has been a really hard few weeks. Not only was Ken in the hospital for a week but we lost one of our dogs. She was a little, four pound toy Pomeranian and a cutie, cuddly, snuggle bunny. AND a very independent cuss. She was over 12 and had Cushings when we adopted her two and a half years ago. We were able to get it under control and she was a very special little character.

Ken started chemo yesterday. He didn’t recover well from his time in the hospital so the oncologist said “it’s time but it’s your choice”. The infusion yesterday went off very well. The low point for red and white cells is at about days 7 through 10. The pharmacy was running 2 hours behind so I had time to do some sketching while we waited.

This time I did sketches of Red Delicious apples from a Whole Living magazine.  These were done with a BIC mechanical pencil in a 5″ X 7″ sketchbook.

    • Aloha Wric! Mahalo my friend…Ken and I try to stay focused on live and living…drawing is a release and takes my mind off the machines, pumps and tubing. The infusion center has a calming zen feel which helps.

    Ugh! Having your husband enduring chemo and losing a doggie. You’re right, that is an awful week and my heart goes out to you.

    Really beautiful sketches. I like the shading on both of them.
