It’s 3AM in a Hospital

Last week my mother in law, Vinh, got a total knee replacement on her right knee. Undergoing any type of surgery is a scary thing and I was really worried about her. I was not just worried about her but worried about Holly.  Holly and Vinh are very close and if anything bad happened it would’ve been devastating to Holly. Millions of things were running through my head while she was in the surgery room but thankfully she came out fine. The first words I heard Vinh say when she finally woke up was “thank God I’m alive” and that put a big smile on my face. Holly and I basically lived at the hospital for four days. I think I got better sleep on an airplane than in the that hospital.  When I couldn’t sleep one night I decided to walk around the seemingly empty hospital and take photos.

So close, yet so far.
