NORA KASTEN, Artist Oil Painting "Red Geraniums"


"Red Geraniums"
© Nora Kasten

Oil painting on linen  (24" x 30")  From the archives  SOLD

"Tomorrow will be two weeks since Jett was admitted into hospital.  He is slowly healing from the two surgeries and has been walking again now for six days.  I'm a little concerned that Jett is still experiencing sharp pains and regularly taking pain meds. . . . every 5 hours now instead of 4.  He still has the cyst but his INR blood count is slowly inching up as wanted.  It was 1.9 today.  At least 2 but not higher than 3 is the number the doctor is trying to achieve and maintain with the Cumadin.  Some good news today was that the doctor told him that he probably will only have to stay on the Cumadin for 3 months after he leaves the hospital.  Jett and I talk on the phone everyday at lunch time and then again in the evening.  He gets disappointed because healing is taking so long but overall, his spirits are good.  Sure hope he isn't putting on an act for his mother.


It's ironic that another man the same age as Jett, 48, has been in the room next to his for the last week.  That man had already lost one foot just above the ankle and the doctors are trying to save his other one but the prognosis is not good.  He has Renaud's disease too and had neglected his health like Jett but was too late in getting medical help for himself.   Is this just a coincidence these two men cross paths with one another at this time.  The man is alone in life like Jett but is a widower while Jett is divorced."

Vous être une femme plus que courageuse. Où puisez-vous toute cette énergie ? ... Je suis très heureuse pour votre fils, petit à petit mais surement il se battra... Il a vu cet homme négliger sa maladie comme lui et il vous voit vous battre en avancer tel un taureau dans l'arène... je pense que le chemin se fait en lui...
J'en oublie à chaque fois de vous dire combien votre peinture est belle, tout comme vous.
Bisous

Martine, I am humbled by your words. I send you blessings today and may all the Love and Goodness you give to others be returned to you a hundred times more.

Good mornin' Nora, I love your geraniums, they are so beautiful. I am glad Jett is returning to health even if ever so slowly. Like anything worth waiting for, it takes time. We all too often want instant gratification and sometimes the quicker we try to obtain the results the less stable the end result. Try to keep him mind occupied to give his body time to heal. No small task, I know. Continuing to keep you and Jett in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Carol

God works in mysterious ways. This other man will help Jett count his blessings and give him courage to move forward. I don't think he's putting on an act for you. My thought is he must be ever thankful to have you in his life. Hugs...

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something
that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of
it!
