I did not post yesturday because I went to see the San Francisco Opera. We bought season tickets and this was the second opera, Aidriane auf Naxos by Strauss. It's uh, very odd. It's a backstage opera for the first half, much like a backstage musical. the second half shows the opera that results from the first half. A bunch of cahracters from the first part don't appear in the second, so a bunch of people bow at intermission, which is highly unusual (I think. It's not like I've seen all that many operas). I notice that if you have a bunch of people on stage in the same range, it's hard to tell who is singing what. But that might be just because we have the second worst seats in the entire house. We have four seats next to the wall in the second to last row of the highest level.

My mom was doing well yesturday. I went early because of the opera. Margie, my mom's attendant, always tells me that mom is much better around 1:00, so I arrived around 1:00 and mom was much better. Her words made sence. She wasn't hallucinating (which she was on wednessday). She wasn't in pain or on pain medication. Pretty groovy.
