Blue Monday - Blue Painting

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

This past Wednesday--in the middle of the night--I had a scare. As you might remember, I have Congested Heart Failure. I couldn't seem to get my breath. Johnny and I quickly determined that we needed help--BIG TIME. We made a mad dash for the hospital. When I arrived, my breathing was registered at 72. (It should be over 90.)

I was admitted and only able to return home yesterday evening. I've now been enlisted in Hospice and have a supply of oxygen at my home. That should prevent further traumatic drives to the ER.

While being taken to my hospital room, I couldn't help but notice this beautiful four-piece painting. I had my son snap a quick shot just for you!

Happy Blue Monday!

Dear Sally
I see many people living with portable oxygen here. I hope it will bring you a better quality of life and more comfort. The photo on the wall is lovely! Happy Blue Monday!

Oh Sally, you take care.
I'm sure you would rather have oxygen at home than having to visit the hospital again.
Thinking of you and thank you for thinking of us and hosting this week.
A lovely blue painting - very calming.

Jeannie Marie said...

They kept you quite a while, it must have been most upsetting. I'm so glad all is well and you are home once again and completely prepared for any further events. It's very sweet that thoughts of Blue Monday surfaced and that you still captured your photo...via your son!

GranthamLynn said...

Oh my goodness. Not the best way to search for a Blue shot! I'm so glad your home. I'll be praying for you! I hope you have a wonderful Blue Monday!

Linda Kay said...

I'll be you were out of control when you saw all that blue. Lovely painting, by the way.

LV said...

I was scared to read any further after I saw the emergency trip. When you have heart problems you cannot take anything for granted. Go a soon as you start having an issue. Time waits for no one. Blogging people are a little touched, as we tend to look for blues even in an emergency situation. Take care my friend as I do care about you.

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

Wow Sally, that was a tense few days. Oxygen at home is such a comfort. Many HUGS for you. Thank you also for hosting Blue Monday - and the hospital blue picture series fit in just fine this week.

Jeanne said...

Oh my gosh Sally, I am calling you in just a few minutes. I am so sorry you had such a scare. The mural is lovely and a nice share. Most of all I am glad you are home and have oxygen near buy as needed.

Much love,

Jeanne said...

OOPS! near by...
me again

Gayle said...

Sending thoughts and prayers your way, Sally.

Sally, good to hear that Johnny’s quick judgment has you back on the even keel. Thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

Whoa, thank goodness for quick thinking. You always find blue in any circumstance--good for you.

Hi Sally,

So glad that you're back home! How traumatic for you and your family. I'm glad that you now have access to oxygen at home but so very sorry that you are suffering so with this. I wish I had a magic wand! I hope another little blue tit will make you smile and please don't overdo it! Very lovely of you to have thought of us all with the photo of the painting. A lovely calming seen for a hospital! Please look after yourself and don't ever worry if you're not well enough to host a Blue Monday! Your well-being has to come first. Perhaps another blogspot blogger could help you host it if you're having a bad time?

Best wishes,

Al said...

I love that painting - sometimes I miss the ocean. Happy Blue Monday!
