I recently saw a national news story about Charla, the woman who was attacked by a chimp and nearly died. She has gotten a new face and her 18 year old daughter (who is just a lovely person) says her mother is looking forward to advancing her recovery with the new face. She'll be able to smell again and eat solid food again, but she will never again be able to see. Her surgeons also attempted a hand transplant but will have to try again, as that part of the 20 hour + surgery failed. Charla is eager to begin a new life and says the thing she misses most is having a home to go to, as she has been hospitalized in some fashion since the attack many months ago. Here's a prayer that she gets to go home soon. Her courage and her desire to "just be home" really touched me. I've decided I have no right to complain about the little things.
