There's life in the wee girl yet

Mary saw Connie today, and said she's doing much better. They have her on an IV to give her badly-needed fluids and to try and flush the toxins (if there are any) out of her liver. Vet said that she had a liver enzyme count of close to 2000, which I guess is not good (normal is about a tenth of that). The good thoughts are working! Thank you all, and please, don't give up. I haven't. Where yesterday I thought I'd be saying goodbye to her, today I think she has a slim chance of pulling through, and I'm clinging to that.

Had time for a couple of quizzies:

This one from <lj user="siliconshaman">:

Your pirate name is:

Bloody John Rackham

Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!

Not you? <a href="http://www.fidius.org/quiz/pirate.php">Try doing it again.</a>
