Wonky - that sounds exciting - looking forward to the pics
Ma slept most of the time I was there, occasionally opening her eyes and looking at me - I would say hello and smile and she'd smile back and close her eyes again. After a couple of hours or so (I had my knitting with me and Classic FM quietly in the room so it was quite relaxing really) she became a bit restless and started fidgeting for a while then dozing off again. Then staff came in to freshen her up and make sure that she was comfortable, and she woke properly and started chatting to them. It's lovely to see the good relationship she has with them.
Bro is visiting her tomorrow and will then be heading to northern Scotland for 10 days with his daughter her hub and their little ones, to visit her husband's grandparents. Bro asked if he should cancel it, but I've told him to go ahead - you can't put your life on hold just waiting ... we might still be waiting when we're due to go to Cornwall ... unlikely ... but as my GP said, my parents are made of tough stuff
Hosta - I've just heard from a friend on the foodie forum - she gave up the booze a while back for health reasons and she's having real problems getting to sleep and then even more problems staying asleep. It seems like a common problem. Glad it's improving for you ((hugs)).
