Life still isn't back to normal. Master spends hours at the hospital with his mom. She's doing 'as expected' still but she's a grumpy patient and Master doesn't let me go along to visit her anymore because she says I don't belong there. Where else should I be but one step behind him? She demands that he's there for all of visiting hours everyday and he obeys.

I'm begining to feel neglected. I have enough self-discipline not to whine or outright complain but the one time I mentioned the lack of attention and requested a bit more of his time, all I got was a mild punishment and a firm suggestion to develop more patience. I'm not always the center of his attention but he's usually there for me; now he's not. I hope things get back to normal soon.
