Sketches from the Front…Day 10

Life goes on to the unceasing beat of the hospital routine, shift changes, medication times, student doctors  hurriedly taking your life story in at a gulp, effusive in their thanks and delightful in their still blushing youth.
And then there is the curious case of the prednisolone side effects (prednisolone  (prɛdˈnɪsəˌləʊn) a steroid drug derived from prednisone and having the same uses as cortisone); wakefulness, restlessness, a feeling as if the Energiser Bunny had jumped into your hutch, hot flushes, hunger, (the aforementioned bunny would be well to stay away) and the dreams……..A moment of confusion last night on waking at 3am from a not unpleasant dream involving a person of Pacific Islander descent and several Pug dogs???? I can only blame the internet. Surely the constant flow of images we see today must be clogging up the ever lessening real estate of our memories only to combine as unlikely scenarios as we try to catalogue them in that chamber of mysteries. Consider the prehistoric person who at best, saw a few pictures scratched on a rock and those in monotone, mammoth aside, at least he was spared the Pug dogs.
I ramble, sketching outside today was difficult, the weather was humid to the point of saturation. Thankfully the storm has come to refresh us all and tomorrow is another day!
