Mum update

Mum was transferred to a specialist care unit yesterday, to aid her in her recuperation through extensive sessions of physio and the like. She's doing really well, and will probably be discharged some time next week. She still has the hiccoughs, but her doctors are hopeful they'll subside gradually as the post-operative swelling lessens. Let's hope they're right. Even if she knows full well that without the surgery she would over time have lost the use of her legs, its greatest appeal and advantage lay in the assertion that it would get rid of her 'tic', as she calls it.

And so September's here again. Another summer's passed with hardly any sun at all, and the sandals and slingbacks I bought earlier this year, as well as the ones purchased last year and the year before, are still packed away in their boxes.
