Our mother’s latest hemorrhage

She is not critical, but she did have a bad hemorrhage from her wound this morning. When she called to tell me she was quite cheerful and and talking about dying. Me and Basil got to the hospital as soon as we could. She was pale from blood loss but on on blood and saline drips and in no more danger than usual for a women of her age and conditions.

They will take her to try and stitch or glue the wound. There are reason for not trying to do this earlier, but I cannot help but think cost is the main one.

Still, it gave me and Basil a chance to chat; we cannot remember the last time we actually met.
