I was worried that Sage had lost a little weight because of her recent illness. I think she lost somewhere between 2 and 3 pounds, which is 10 percent of her total weight. To put things in perspective, I hit the scales at around 180 lbs - it would like me losing 18 pounds in a couple of days (oh, I wish!).
But almost immediately after recovery, she got it all back, pretending to be a shark and terrorizing sleeping fathers, devouring fries and sinigang, tromping around in my socks and shoes, and holding conversations in the language of Elves and Men.
