I'm a Pole Dancer This Week!

Back at Smilow Cancer Center for another round of chemo. Excited because after this round I only have one more left! As I write this I am hooked up to my chemo hanging from my IV pole - it becomes my best friend while I'm in here - I pull it along where ever I travel be it the bathroom or for a walk in the hall - it's not much of a conversationalist but it stands tall next to my bed and watches over me while I sleep.

I am using this down time to sketch out some new work. I look forward to having my treatments all behind me and gaining my strength back so I can get back to my studio - I have hopes and ideas for some Valentine critters and creations!

So I will sign off for today and get back to my sketchbook in hopes that my IV pole does not get jealous!


  1. Christine...I'm Jenny Rayno's big sister ;-) I've been loving your blog...didn't know if you remembered me. Your art & life are an inspiration....looking forward to more posts from you. I just put a link to you on my blog, so I remember to check for updates!

    Cheers to Valentine critters & creations !!!

    1. Hi Debbie! - I very much enjoy your blog too! - I will link it to mine! With all the time I have on my hands I need to make my blog a bigger priority - it keeps the creativity flowing - thanks for checking in!
      Your husband used to be one of my best little buds in nursery school - I know we have pictures somewhere at some point I should dig them up - I believe they we were wearing antlers and and red rudolph noses!


  2. Oh super yay!! Blog away my friend... it's good for the soul...

    I was so delighted to read your little memory of The Mister...if you ever find pics, do share, what a treat!

    Will see you often & around the blogosphere ;-)

  4. I was searching for art studio pictures on Pinterest and found yours. I was shocked to click over to here and see you are fighting leukemia. I linked to your blog in my last post. I will pray for you, I am so inspired by your sketching through treatments.
