Artist's Description

It’s not unique, at all. Old age comes, hopefully, to all of us and then there’s need for care.
I’m having a cup of coffee and then, again, off to the hospital; sit a few hours in the waiting room, in emergency, until I can sit with my father (90) and fill the doctors in on his long history of ailments.

Since 1994, I have spent very much of my time, at this window, night and day. The Apple computers changed with up-dating. More time became available when it was necessary to retire a bit early to care for both parents, then.
In recent days, I brought a far too fragile father back home from the hospital. Two falls followed, on consecutive days.
I am full of admiration for the ambulance officers, who attended. Twice we signed and agreed that he’d rather stay home. An hour or so ago the need to go was obvious.
My uncle, back, in Gouda, Holland, fresh from living in Melbourne, in 1951, for a year or so, said to my father: " In australia the sun always shines "
That’s where we have to go, my father had exclaimed.
Today, on the first really warm and sunny day of spring, the ambulance took my father to the hospital again.
I’ve jokingly called this spot my ‘nursing station’, very often. At least, for a little while, I can leave the nursing care to the professionals again.
Funny how, the first time that I ever had to call the ambulance for my mother, it seemed so drastic. So traumatic. Now it seems almost routine ….but not quite!
