Bringing kinja into focus, one frame at a time

My mom has been in the hospital since Friday. So I’m dealing with it the best way I can. Taking pictures.

So without going into all the details, they don’t really know what’s wrong. She’s not on her death bed or anything, but they are still trying to figure out everything. It’s been and exhausting and stressful few days, with more to come.


I decided I would take one picture each day at the hospital for a series documenting it. I’m taking them with my iPhone. I have no idea what I’m going to do with these, or if I’ll even show them to her. Anyway. These are the Friday and Saturday pictures.

Oh, I took the header at the hospital, too. But it was only because I found a real live emoji! It’s not part of the single daily picture.


Maybe I’ll write an essay on my newfound fear of mortality or something to go with these when she’s all better and home.

So if I don’t post anything or comment on stuff for a while, I’m just dealing with this stuff and not out taking pictures. Except secretly taking one a day at the hospital.


That’s all.  Thanks.
