Dad ate, and kept down, solid food; first time in days, according to ma. She has had her foot up most of the day. It hurts more than yesterday, but I take that as a notice of healing. I put the trousers she was wearing when she had the accident to soak in cold water. The water turned the colour of a light red wine, which surprised me. The blood had had nearly a full 24 hours to dry.
