Went out Very Early to visit my mom in the ICU before the morning rounds and shift change. Held her hand for about 40 minutes, talked to her and the nurse. She was awake and reasonably alert for a while, then some meds kicked in and not so much. I will be back over there sometime this afternoon. They are supposed to transfer her out of ICU today.
Came back to Witchnest Manor to (eventually) find calendula_witch feeling rather a bit ill. Thankfully, she is experiencing the stay-in-bed-and-sleep-uneasily kind of ill, not the go-to-the-ER kind of ill. Still, ’tis a wet and gloomy day here in Greater Portlandia, the real advent of our autumnal weather, and my poor sweetie seems to be matching the aspect of the season.
