My mother's surgery went well. I doodled this while in the study near my mother's hospital room. Besides a large television, the study had a seperate room with internet-enabled computers and a large table. While my mother rested during one of my visits, I sat at the table, plugged in my computer, and doodled away.
My Horrible is hiding behind is the symbol of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the hospital where my mother was treated. Sloan Kettering is the leading hospital in NYC for cancer treatment. While my mother went through tests, we saw many other cancer patients from around the world in the waiting room, including many small children.
It was the same hospital that treated my father's cancer back in the 1980s. It was one of the reasons my mother tried to avoid it. In the end, she chose this hospital because it provided the best care.
