Upstairs, downstairs

Mary and I called in to see Mum yesterday on our way up to London. The latest is that the medics expect her to be in hospital for about two more weeks. The swelling caused by fluid retention has almost completely gone; her legs are back to their normal shape - more or less. The bruising on her left arm has started that interesting rainbow cycle that healing bruises go through on their way back to skin colour. The plan is to move her to a "fast track" physio ward where she will get more intensive physiotherapy to get her fully mobile again. Key to that is that she can get up and down stairs since my parents do not live in a bungalow.
