Drawn over the course of a week in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, CA. My father had reconstructive back surgery which had it’s fair share of complications. The first week he was very critical unconscious and on a ventilator. Watching a machine breathe for a loved one all day and all night with a massive amount of tubes keeping them alive makes you question life quite a bit to say the least. He’s been in the hospital almost 8 weeks now and is slowly but surely making great progress and will hopefully be able to go home in a week or two.
The hospital is an intense place to draw. Everyday hearing code blue’s called and lullaby’s played when babies are born. Souls coming and going. Special thanks to the surgeons, doctors, nurses (especially SICU CHRIS & AMANDA!!), aides and staff who helped keep my father alive and were as excited as us for his recovery.
