And after all that, I came home to this...
But she had been shopped for and fed and talked to...so that's ok.
She is ok - long straggly, unwashed hair and usual confused self. Maybe aware I'd been away, showed no interest in where or to what. Vaguely interested in the tea souvenir I brought her. Yujiro had used the lunch delivery service for 3 weeks to help him.
Okaasan's room was overflowing with half dried pants, papers, old food, trash. That is only 3 weeks.
Oyomesan is back on duty.
