Sleeping Beauty

spending the day at home from work watching my youngest sleep/heal from an operation on his eardrum. Poor boy has had about 6 operations over the years to try to repair the hole left by a tube put in as a baby. He is 19 years old now. All that time, he could never go swimming without getting horrible infections in his inner ear. My theory is that he was so busy growing, that, each time they did the surgery, his next growth spurt pulled it apart again. At long last, he seems to have slowed down, or maybe even stopped, topping out at 6'4".
The medication has been bothering him, and he has had a horrible headache and nausea for the last 24 hours or so. Working at trying to get him to eat and to drink lots of water to help.
While he is sound asleep on the couch, I have been cleaning up my painting area, (WAY TOO little of anything to call a studio--it is half a kitchen table I share with my husband who does model railroading) and making some real progress. hope to have space to start painting again just doesn't work well doing it on the couch with the dogs....

Poor thing! At least he has a trusty companion to nap with.

Thanks for your sweet words on my last post!
