    He stared at the ceiling, trying

    Hello.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "He stared at the ceiling, trying to make some sense of what he heard a few days ago"

    Thanks.

    Re: He stared at the ceiling, trying

    Yes, though you could say a few days earlier/before.
