I have a tragic update.  My mom passed away this morning.  Dad and I were asleep in her room, while Suzy was at the house with Brian and the boys.  About 3:30 AM, Dad woke me up to tell me it was almost time.  Mom's vital signs were being monitored from the nearby nurse's station.  Suzy arrived, and the three of us were around Mom's bed. I held her left hand, Suzy held her right, and Dad stood at the foot of the bed.  I did get the chance to tell Mom I loved her.  After about an hour, she finally passed.  I heard Dad say, "4:24," and I took that to be the time she died.  When it was done, I sat with Suzy for a while in the visitor/family lounge.  Then we all went back to the house.  Thanks to everyone who gave their sympathies.  I'm mostly over my grief now.  I may have more grief later, but the worst is over.

If anyone out there was wondering where I'd been for the past 24 hours, I'll tell you: things got a little chaotic.  I think I've mentioned that my mom isn't well.  Sadly, she's taken a turn for the worse.  My dad was trying to reach me, but having trouble.  He was trying to call me on his cell through his car radio.  Eventually, we connected.  He told me to get packed and take a train to meet him.  So I got myself together, then rode the train.  Dad picked me up at Millbrae, and he took me to the hospital where Mom was.  She was kind of a sorry sight, with the oxygen mask and IVs.  All I could do was sit in the room and keep her company.  Dad told me Suzy and Brian were coming up later that day, and my cousins Kim and Denise would be by the following day.  Anyway, we were basically keeping a vigil.  Suzy arrived late at night.  The three of us slept in the hospital room with Mom.  There were a number of nurses who came in during the whole time to provide care, and see to our needs.  In the morning, the doctor came and gave us the news: her lung was badly damaged by cancer.  He suggested putting her on a morphine drip.  Anyway, I'm at the house now so I could clean myself up.  Not sure how much longer my mother will hang on.  I'll be in touch.

Hobbit Sketch-a-Thon!

Hey gang.  I'm a little under the weather today.  But let me tell you about yesterday's event at the Cartoon Art Museum: It was another Sketch-a-Thon, this one promoting The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.  And yes, I've already seen it, I got to check it out at a special advance screening on Wednesday.  I found it quite enjoyable!  Anyway, this Sketch-a-Thon wasn't quite as well-organized as previous ones.  For one thing, the staff at the Cartoon Art Museum didn't even know the event was supposed to be yesterday!  They'd thought it as supposed to be the previous weekend.  Anyway, it was all right, even if there wasn't a big turnout.  The highlight for me was seeing an old friend I haven't seen in about twenty years.  It was a fellow artist named Wahab.  He came with his two young kids, and hung out to draw with us.  I didn't get many requested sketches yesterday.  One lady asked for a picture of Legolas, and that was it.  So I did some art on my own.  I was prepared to stay around there until five o'clock, but there was another event that was starting at four, so we had to clear out pretty fast.  I did manage to get some free swag, always a perk to drawing at these events.  I got a T-shirt, a tote bag, and even a copy of Tolkien's novel The Hobbit..  There were some other items I thought would be available, but they weren't: pencils, mugs and wrapping paper.  Danielle, who was in charge of the promotion, explained that they don't always get the same kinds of merchandise to give away.  So that was yesterday.  And I'll be taking it easy today.
