I went to Urgent Care on Friday. Thursday afternoon I began developing horribly painful hives that only burned and itched more when I used hydrocortisone cream on them. Friday morning I woke up and lo and behold, there they were, and my mom noted they were getting fairly angry and reminded her of shingles. So… Continue reading Pain
YES, I have been terribly absent on this blog. I’m very sorry! But I’ve been a busy busy busy bee at home! I have completed my first real series of paintings, Mother’s Love. The paintings are avaliable as prints via Society6.com They have taken about five months of work, and I only wanted to share… Continue reading I’ve Been Absent (but for good reason!)
