Thursday, April 2nd was very windy. I took my dog for a quick walk before I went to the studio as planned. A large branch fell out of a tree and crashed on my head! I slowly melted to the ground as I saw stars and tried to catch myself by landing on my right knee and left hand. My hero is my baby boy, Chibi, who licked my face and barked until I woke up. ( only seconds) I quickly got up and got home, put on a splint and iced my head and wrist. Thought I'd go on to the studio to take my mind off of my aches but once there I decided I'd better call the hand Dr. because my left hand was hurting like it did when I broke my thumb. Dr. Fredrick was in surgery all day so I went to the Carrell Clinic Emergency ( best place in town for non-life threatening emergencies) Had a possible concussion and broken wrist. Dr. Wu sent me with a prescription for pain, x-rays and directions to follow. After tutoring I was in severe pain, which is unusual for me. Slept little and still hurt quite a bit. Still don't know much more - have to return on April 13 to get re-x-rayed because this kind of break doesn't show up right away. Very boring and painful way to start April. I do have some paintings to post from my trip. Will do that soon.
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
