Mum was taken into hospital last Thursday. Her leg has been improving but she has been complaining about aches in her back, which we put down to inactivity. However, The we were concerned that Mum had lost her appetite, slept a lot, looked very pale and felt cold, despite the central heating up high enough to mimic a tropical palm house! The GP came on Thursday morning and she gave Mum a thorough examination and said she'd prefer it if Mum went into hospital for further tests. Surprisingly, Mum agreed. She has only been to stay in hospital four times: appendix at 14 and to give birth to 3 of the 5 of us, the last time being almost 40 years ago.

Yesterday, she had an MRI scan, which we think was to investigate her bones. We won't have results until Wed or Thurs.

Her appetite has improved and she's chattering like the Mum we know but she still feels cold, again despite sweltering hospital heat and layers of clothes and fleecy blankets. She's still sleeping a lot as well.

Her favourite aunt, Kathleen, died young from bone cancer so we're holding our breaths.
