The image has nothing to do with the title. I was just playing with retexturing ArtTailor’s Atomique outfit and chose it to post the latest “Are You Kidding Me?” saga. I promise I am not looking for sympathy just someone to share the idiocy.
On September 19 I posted the “What Next?” tale of Allie’s ankle, Mother’s hip/nursing home, and remote schooling. Everyone is doing well and the dreaded question of going home has never arisen. Just after I posted that we found out that Ray’s brother is going to have surgery soon to piece his deteriorating lower spine back together. The boy looks like a corkscrew. And now for the piece de resistance: Caitlin (9 year old granddaughter) took a bad bounce on the trampoline last Saturday, hit her arm on the upright net support and snapped her humerus in two about an inch above the elbow. I still cringe when I think about that xray. The local hospital immediately had her transported to the Norton’s Children’s Hospital in Louisville where they put it back together, inserted pins and applied a cast from fingers to just below the shoulder. They wrapped the cast in that stretchy, self-adhesiive gauze in the colors of her choice – blue and purple. She is doing well but is worn out. We managed a little school yesterday and today, but not much. We’ve decided the rest of the kids have to sit on the couch for the rest of their lives.
Is 2020 ever going to end???

I'm sorry for the troubles. I hope Caitlin heals quickly and completely. This year has been going on forever. Hang in there. Your render is cool. I love the cute baby dragons, they seem to be attracted to the lovely pink dress.

As they say, when it rains, it pours...let's hope no one else needs medical care..good idea to keep the kids on the couch, perhaps not forever, but at least until the stars are in more favorable positions...Great scene you've created-love that hat :)

I saw the title and thought "Boy, that's gonna leave marks..." Then I read your narrative, and OMG - poor Caitlin!! I almost felt that from here! The Girls and I send our love and healing vibrations her way - that's got to be rough to go through..
I don't know how the heck I managed it, but in my (chasing 72 in a few days) years, I've never broken a bone in my body. Which is amazing considering all the stupid s__t I did when I was (a lot) younger...
Excellent artwork by the way, Teri!

This year has gone on for so long that I spend a lot of time trying to convince my weary friends that it will indeed get better. Hang in there Teri, the chaos will come to an end. The image is a bright spot in this maelstrom. Still I was expecting combat boots. :P

Nice picture, but I sure am sorry to hear that everything seems to be hitting you all at once.

You've certainly had one hell of a year - I hope things start to improve for you now!

I have total faith that Caitlin will heal fast and be back on a trampoline before you can say Boo, Teri! At least I'm hoping that is the case. Stay safe and well my friend!

Well you had a really fun week. 2020, yuchhhhh !!! We are all ready to turn the page on this year. So sorry to hear about all the medical. You hang in there and know that good thoughts are coming your way.

Oh my but you have been through it. I go berserk when I have a sick or injured grandchild. Such a helpless feeling to not be able to fix it for them. Your image is stunning! I hope all your sick folks are well soon and let me know how the couch sitting works. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Great work. I wish 2020 was over with and we can get on with our lives.

I think everyone is done with this year, I hope everyone heals up well.

Nice if unusual render with quaint architecture and great lighting. Could the lady's clothing be perhaps a bit gaudy for the setting? :)
I do hope Caitlin and Ray's brother recover real soon. 2020 certainly has been a hell of a drag for a year. Can only hope 2021 won't be worse...
