A difficult week for everyone

On Tuesday, my Mom went in for some routine blood tests.
Her blood sugar was high, so we admitted her to the emergency room again.
She ended up having pneumonia as well as out of control blood sugar.
It was a difficult week for everyone, and from the few chances I had to see the news, it was a hard week for people all over the world...

She came home today, but isn't out of the woods yet.
The good news is that her tumor has shrunk down to almost nothing, with only one chemo treatment!
It's too early to get excited.
The doctors still want her to do one more round of chemo...
And she hasn't been able to walk for a few weeks now.

I spent every waking hour at the hospital, or trying to stay ahead at work this past week.
The hospital room was a double, and only had a chair, and although I brought my sketchbook, I was uninspired.
But I did spend some time in my drawing room today...
