Up and about.

Hi to all of you beautiful people. Sorry that it took so long for me to update, I’ve still been having a pretty rough time pain-wise. That being said, my pain medication was upped last week and since then it’s been getting a bit better. Yesterday I was even able to go buy some (desperately needed) new pairs of pants after my doctor appointment. It feels good to accomplish things – no matter how small – after barely being able to make it out of bed for a week.

I’m hoping that things will continue to improve and I’ll be able to lower my medication back down soon. For now I’m mostly just biding my time until I can see the neurologist and maybe get some treatment options for my spine.

I want to say thank you, again, for all of your wonderful comments and emails of support. You all have such amazing, kind hearts and you really do mean the world to me.

Sadly, I haven’t been able to do too much drawing lately but I have started a new piece that I’m really excited about. I’m trying some new things with it and attempting to use my prismacolor markers. On that note, I got a new OTT-Lite lamp with a magnifying glass and I must say, looking through it is like looking into a whole new world! As most of you know I don’t have very good eyesight but with this new lamp I can actually see what I’m doing on an entirely new level! I didn’t know just how poorly lit my work-space was before now.

It’s really nice to have a hands-free magnifying glass too. Before I would just have a pencil in one hand and the magnifying glass in the other which is a bit of a pain when you need your free hand for other things.

I’m not going to post any pictures of my new drawing until it’s all done. I want it to be a surprise. :)

Much love to all of you.
And thank you for everything. xx
