    Her ability to endure in the face of pain has never ceased to astound me. Evidently, she's always been that way. I know she declined the epidural during the birth of one of her kids; after all, she was just having a baby...

    This was one of only a couple times that I've seen her really admit that she needed help because of pain, and I knew it was going to be a tough week. I am immensely grateful that she is doing much better now, at least in that sense.

    For the record, the other time was an infected ingrown toenail. So, if anyone--like me--questioned whether ingrown nails are really that bad? Yeah. They are.
