Photo: A facsimile of a great gift given to J by some great friends. She loves it, but Hamish is looking nervous.

J has had a pretty good past couple of days. Let's hope it continues.

Yesterday she had visitors, and timing could not have been better. J was as lucid and upbeat as she's been in weeks, and she thoroughly enjoyed the visit. She is very self-concious about her appearance, though to me she looks better than she has in weeks thanks to the dialysis. In every session they remove about 10 lbs. of water from her blood which makes her feel much more energetic.

We put in a request to her doctor for me to replace the yellow water they call chicken soup with something from home, so I hope they agree to that...and I hope J's interest in eating continues.

I thought she looked great (you know, considering), and I really enjoyed the visit, too. Next time I come, I will bring her my own hospital secret weapons: a brush on bronzer and lipgloss. Makes ya look all sexayyy, even when you haven't seen the sun in weeks ;-)

PS...tell Hamish not to worry. From the looks of things, the zombie had been fed recently

"Makes ya look all sexayyy, even when you haven't seen the sun in weeks ;-)" ... You do know that J and I are Earth's 2 biggest heliophobes, right?

Hamish seems fine...but part of his tail seems shorter....
