Life in July





This has been a rough month for us. The first 10 days of the month, we all got sick. Iris started first with super high fever for several nights. We took her to the doctor several times. Tone and I had to take turn wiping her down all night for several nights. So we both got weaken and then I got sick and then Tone got sick. We all recovered by July 15th to have a low-key 3yr old birthday cake with Iris. The orchids at home also bloomed around that time as her birthday present. However, a few days later, Tone had a spike in his heart beat for two consecutive evenings. So we have been back to the hospital again to check his heart and he has to wear the heart monitor, called "holter" for 48 hours. Now it has been about 40 hr and Tone has not yet experienced any more heart beat spike but we will have to go to the hospital tomorrow to take the machine off and get the reading out of it. I was totally off from Wetcanvas for almost 3 weeks now. The constant family sickness just turns me off from the forum. I am sure I will feel better to get back as least tonight I feel great to get back to check out my artist friends' blogs again. They really lift up my spirit. Thank you all for creating such wonderful works.
I did not do much arts but I manage to squeeze in a few postcards and a painting for the group show in September.

Oh Ai, I am so sorry to hear that you and your sweet family have been so sick! It is always so difficult when everyone comes down with an illness. I am glad to hear you and dear Iris are feeling better, how is Tone doing?? My prayers to your family

I hope all is better with your family. Hopefully Tone's heart spikes were from the worry of you all being sick and too many late nights nursing. Take care and don't stay away from WC too long. Glad you were able to read some blogs and do some art.

Desiree: thank you for your cheering words. Things are back to normal now. Tone heart seems to be fine at the moment and we will see the specialist next week.

Jeanne: I think we all recover from illness. Now I try to do at least one mini card a day. I miss painting and drawing. Thank you for your drawing blogs, very inspiring.
