Yesterday, I spent another five hours at the hospital. I got a free hot orange chocolate at the costa, as I have spent so much in there recently. Comfort food. I suspect I am going to put back on the five pounds I lost this summer. Today we are going to buy a new mattress for mums bed. It has to be a 6 inch memory foam, so that the electric lifter will work under it, to raise dad up to a sitting position, and stop the strain on mums back.  A special foam mattress goes on top of that, to stop bed sores.

Then we are going to my great aunt sylvia's 99th birthday party. This is an interim one. She is planning a big one for next year.
