After being sick for a couple of months, my mother has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and life as we know it has changed overnight. Her doctor visits, hospital visits and health needs have become the recipient of my (and my sisters) time and not much is left over for anything else except squeezing in a visit or two to the hospital to visit my just-had-a-total-knee-replacement-brother. While she was at my sister Donna’s house last week, I did manage to paint a mother/children portrait my cousin commissioned. It was a good diversion.
So, what do you do when your world has been turned upside down? How do you deal with the ordinary? If I am away for another long period of time, I am sure you will understand.
