patisserie & other things

Mom is doing a lot better today. The painkillers aren't agreeing with her stomach, so I think at this point, she's completely off of them. Her head hurts if she doesn't keep the ice packed on, but not nearly as badly as last night. (If she takes the meds, she hurls. Not so good.) But she kept dinner down, and that's definitely a blessing. She's sleeping now, and I'm going to try and curl up with my book and follow suit. Tomorrow we all go home.

I found a good patisserie/charcuterie a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Fantastic coffee and pain au chocolat, a great salad nicoise, tasty salads, a lovely Normandy apple tart. Yes, yes, I did eat all my meals of the day there. La Conversation on Dougherty in West Hollywood, if you're ever that way.

I'm glad my mom is doing better. Yesterday was really scary. To those of my friends who need some love and support today - I love you. A lot. And I'll be home soon.

Hey, Meriko -- I'm so glad your mom's feeling better today. I realize you all are leaving tomorrow, but let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Thinking of you and yours!

I'm glad your mom is in less pain today (yesterday, actually). Codine has that effect on me, too. Imagine post-wisdom teeth removal (all four at once), with vomiting. I haven't touched the vile stuff since.

Have a safe trip home!

I too am glad your Mom is on the road to a complete recovery! Having you as a daughter must give her such a sense of joy. Here's to a safe return home.
