The Mom update

OM is doing a bit better all the time. I can tell she's on the mend, because she's getting impatient with her current inability to get up and take care of household chores. She has her good days and her bad days. Today seems to be shaping up to be a good day, since she kept off her feet all day yesterday and was able to sleep well last night.

The night before I got quite a scare. I was relaxing in bed with a book when I heard this sudden bloodcurdling yell coming from my mom's room. I tossed the book and bolted down the hall to see what was wrong, with visions of horrible leg pains or stomach cramps dancing in my head. As it turned out, she was just having a bad dream.

ETA: OK, just have to share this, because I'm tickled by it. My mom's neighbors are having a wedding reception; it's in full swing right now. There's a live mariachi band playing a slew of old favorites. LIVE MARIACHI, people. It is awesome.
