Jack: Once upon a time, before I came, you cried and cried and watched TV all day, until you were a zombie. But then I zoomed down from heaven, through skylight, into Room. Whoosh-pshew! And I was kicking you from the inside. Boom, ...
The morning after "old Nick" hits Ma, Jack sees the bruises on her neck. Later, she has the idea to pretend Jack's got the fever, but she remarks it has to be that day because the power was cut. Therefore it is established that it only has passed one day, but her bruises are gone. You can't see either purple, blue, green, yellow, as the common stages of it.
