Mental Note: The room has a phone. When apartment hunting on Monday, use it instead of actually wandering to the place! You stay warm and save your socks, too.
The nurses are more focused on getting mom to feed, so they have tried again with three meals. None really worked out, though she ate ice cream and mashed potatoes. Spoonfuls of them, but there's something to talk about.
She's also becoming more coherent, though that means she's also going back to her grumpy, impatient self. Which I'm happy about... though she's still out of it, because as I'm typing, she's sorta degrading back to babbling nonsense, and contradicting. And she doesn't try to sleep. I'm honestly hoping that she is able to figure things out more, though she complained about why I brought her to the hospital once today, and I keep telling her that, basically, I saved her life. I believe she cares, and that it's the pain talking.
I visited my brothers, as usual, and wound up taking a nap at home by accident. Afterward, not seemingly learning my lessons about yesterday, looked around again in the area. I had 4 main areas of interest, and one got knocked off yesterday. Today, 2 more were eliminated because the Pangea apartment complex was so full, they had to rent out the model facility. No openings until January, at the earliest. This leaves the first option, but I'm gonna call them instead Monday instead of wandering there. I'm also contemplating expanding my options a wee bit. I've automatically eliminated the apartment complex we did live at for 3 years, though the sibling complex down the street might be an option. However, according to various apartment websites, the one I'm looking at is available. I just hope the "wheelchair" ones are available, or the ground level. Don't think mom will be too thrilled about more stairs.
I'm also doing research about applying for an application, so I think I'll just take all my info there for them to analyze. Bank statements, previous leasing info, power of attorney... better to be too careful than not careful at all. But, if the main place is full, I'll just pay another month's rent at my current place.
Personally, couldn't be happier about sports; Indiana retained the Bucket, and is finally going bowling! I could care less about where we go; the fact that we are going somewhere is worth it, and I'll finally have something to look forward to during bowl season.
