I know that it is fall, but I just feel that I keep falling behind.  Unfortunately my husband was hospitalized on the past two Saturdays.  The first one for pneumonia and dehydration.  And the most recent for a nose bleed and rectal/GI bleed.  All this has come from his cancer treatment for his metastatic renal cancer.  Needless to say, he is weak and having quite a bit of pain.  Tomorrow he has a MRI of his spine and he may be discharged.  The question is will he be able to come home, or will he require some rehab.  He is a patient on the nursing unit that I work on so it has been rather stressful for me.  I have also worked because I have not wanted to use a lot of my "sick" time so I have not had a lot of sleep.

I did manage to use my Prisma pencils and do a little coloring while he was sleeping the other day.  And this is what I came up with.
