I'm glad to say my Mum is home from hospital after her bout of pneumonia. She was kept in longer than expected because they needed to get rid of the fluid on her lungs. She came home yesterday but luckily it was late afternoon because our landlord was fitting double glazing so she missed all the mess and noise.
......I could be away for some time. My Mum was rushed into hospital in the early hours of Saturday morning with breathing problems that turned out to be pneumonia and today the chest specialist says she also has fluid on the lungs. I'll try to do some work when I have the time it keeps my mind occupied and from worrying.
I chose the word 'nostalgia' for this module and using different drawing methods experimented with different styles.
