Speedy recovery, best wishes and stay safe. Hope the coughs and pain aren't keeping you up at night. Speaking from experience, it's the sleepless nights that are the worse since sleep heals you but if you can't even sleep soundly... it can really lengthen the period.

Big BIG fan of your Hisui, Cthuko and Sapphire.

For those who don't know what Pneumonia is and are too lazy to search it, here is a brief explanation.

Pneumonia is a lung infection that can make you very sick. You may cough, run a fever, and have a hard time breathing. It may take a person about half a month to recover and the recovery can be done at home.


that's sounds so bad, hope she'll be fine
