My mother is very much better today, thanks be to God.
She is sitting up in bed, taking notice and issuing instructions, which is *always* a good sign ! I washed a mini-mountain of laundry for her and hung it out to try, did paperwork for her that she was fretting about, and sundry other jobs.
On the walk back home, I was blessed to see a buzzard lazily soaring on the thermals (it was a gloriously sunny and hot afternoon) so I simply stood and watched and throughly enjoyed the sight :-) It was fun.
Mother in law is still not so good, but feeling a little better.
I had a busy day in work, plus one of my volunteer jobs for an hour or so rather than the three hours I normally dedicate to it. I am cutting back, honest :-)
Thank you all for your prayers, I really, really appreciate each and every one of you so much, and thank God for you all.
I am blessed.
