Sorry for the long silence today, but this is the first time I’ve gotten near a computer since 11:00 this morning. It was a very complicated day today with regard to my mother and, while she’s fine, I’m tired. I’d like to write, but I don’t have the energy to martial my thoughts. I seem to have expended all I’ve got explaining to her that there weren’t two German couples sharing her hospital room; that they didn’t leave the room through the window; that her physical therapist isn’t her niece; that the nurses aren’t running a wholesale business at the nursing station, so that she can trust the medicines they give her; that she is allowed to eat the hospital food; etc. Reality is a very loose concept for her now, and she drifts in and out, passing effortlessly from awareness to delusion.
I’m going to go watch Bones, which is my current version of mental chocolate.
