Jess is feeling a lot better, empirically, so I'm not nearly as worried about her. apparently it tends to come more in the nights than in the days (something I understand - my allergies and asthma are always the worst when I just wake up) so I'm not going to drag her to the hospital yet. If she starts hacking up a lung again tonight though, I may take her.
She's off taking a shower right now. So far, Laura and Neil have met her, and that's about it - she was tired last night and ended up taking enough drugs to knock her out for 6 hours apiece: twice. So, for the first time since, according to her, she was a teenager (wait a second - that was just 2 years ago!) she actually got a full 12 hours of sleep.
It's so nice to have her here, but I really want her to meet my friends, too. I'd kind of forgotten a little bit of how... opinionated? she is. Just completely says whatever is on her mind, and I love it, because I just smile because I know her well enough to know when she's kidding, but other people just gasp or stare or whatever.
I think we're probably going to run out to get some food and to a grocery store. Hopefully we'll be hanging out with newperspectives and juniperesque saturday afternoon/evening, although I'm not sure on any specifics on that yet.
Anyway, just a quick update while jess showers. I'll catch ya'll later
Oh, and a very hearty "Avast ye!" to jennyrhill in honor of her birthday, aka National Talk Like A Pirate Day.
