dc: Me, in a pub.  (Sideways)
My mother should be getting out of hospital today. She's much improved. The leg problem seems to be cellulitis which is responding to antibiotics. The lung problem seems to have been a small pulmonary embolus and she is being started on subcut heparin.

The slight worry is the incidental finding of a very small nodule in the other lung. The concern is obviously that this might be cancer, so she's going to be seen as an out-patient to have that investigated. If it is neoplastic, then it's really a bit of luck it has been found so early.

She is looking a lot better and, obviously, jumping at the bit to get home.
