Trying to remain calm and normal as my mum lies in hospital...

An early morning call elicits the info that she has had a settled night and the docs are pleased with progress..

So, out into a lovely, cold day...



..to Starlightnight Street...


Some more extremely cheap classical CDs are winging their way to Crispycat Towers...

In the afternoon a return to the infirmary for Anne and I...

Mum looks pretty terrible and is very short of breath and still a little confused on matters I'd judge - but much better than when I left her earlier this morning...

The ward sister advised the docs are very pleased with her response thus far to the treatment and she will hopefully go to a ward soon...

We left with sister Sheila due to pop in later this evening...

Anne is off to a long ago booked ballet with chum Debbie this evening and we had an hour or so to spare before that meet so we popped to new arts venue Summerhall and were duly impressed...

With the cafe...



With the installations...


The decor...


The wee, as yet unvisited, pub...


The big chimney...


The posters...


And an excellent exhibition of Josef Beuys artifacts from the Richard DeMarco Archive...












I have time for the much maligned and, in hindsight, visionary Richard DeMarco...

He is the same age as my mum...

A purchase at the shop...


...some leaflet collection and out into the now cold and windy early evening...

Anne off to the ballet...

Me home for some listening and catching up on matters and giving news re mum to interested parties...

Back into town late on to take the ladies home after a good night...

Keeping my mind off matters...

Highlight of the Day : Mum a bit better...

Hi Ali

thanks for that - it's Sunday evening now and she seems to be improving a little...

Well, actually, a lot but it's all relative...
