Here is a one sentence update from Mum this morning:
‘I have just downed a glass of white stuff that tasted and looked like wallpaper paste.’
She also dictated a joke to ‘The Laughing Housewife’ yesterday.
I thought the doctors had decided that Mum had a vertebral infection causing her so much back pain but it appears they are still checking their diagnosis with further tests. She is no longer flat on her back but sitting up and taking the odd tentative slow stroll. They promised her physiotherapy yesterday which never materialised but hopefully that will happen today.
She now has a lovely home-baked tart to eat that was delivered by friends yesterday along with some sweet peas and a good book – ‘Teaching a stone to talk: expeditions and encounters’ by Annie Dillard.
Thanks again for thinking of Mum and all your get well messages.
