Flotsam: illness

Joyce Crago woke up August 30th at 5 am with an awful pain. She couldn’t eat. She dragged herself to Toronto the next day to look at framing and to deliver Lisa McLeod’s portrait to her. She came home early on the train. She thought she had food poisoning but two days later she was still sick and so finally she went to the doctor. Her doctor told her that she needed to go to Emerge because she had appendicitis. On Friday, September 2nd, she was admitted and she has a perforated appendix. She stayed in the hospital six nights.

And then she entered the country of Illness. It’s a completely different country, in every way:

  • A different language
  • Different citizens
  • Different rules and laws
  • Different culture
  • Different Gods and Totems
