At Last! Last November, six months ago, I was hospitalized with pneumonia. I had been on oxygen at night for quite a few years, but when I came home from there, I was put on oxygen 24/7. It does make it a little more difficult to do things, and each time I leave my suite I have to change to the portable oxygen, and when I get home, go through the changing all over again.
I was weak, with little or no energy… and had no desire to do anything! Eventually I began wanting to draw and paint…but still lacked the ambition to do either. It is not a good thing to just sit around doing nothing or watching TV.
So, after six months I finally got out my pencils (and eraser) and I drew a rose. It was another four or five days before I got out my paints, brushes and some water, and went to work painting it!
