Vyx bought the first three manga just before the series started, so I knew most of what was going on up to the previous episode, but the latest ep is new material for me. I definitely want to read more because there's a lot of little text gags and inner thoughts stuff that the anime glosses over (though its presentation of emotional states is often rather clever; I like the "colored cut-out" motif) but I don't feel like the anime's lacking in any way. It's faithful (if a bit out-of-sequence, in ways that make sense for the adaptation) but on par with its source material at this point.
We're also sticking with Yashahime out of pure stubbornness (oh yeah, now I remember why I never fell in love with Inuyasha in the first place), and I'm catching up on Adachi & Shimamura (which is a firmly cute-but-not-spectacular little yuri-fest).

So, keep him in your thoughts; and he should be back with us soon.

Pond Scum gets stagnant without a Duck to stir it up...

He is still in hospital. He still has a blood clot, and the blood thinners are still working away. He has added "kidney stone" to his hospital experience, and will hopefully have it removed on Tuesday, the old-fashioned way. It can't be lasered because of the blood thinners.
So, keep him in your thoughts, and he expresses his appreciation for the messages he has received here and elsewhere.

I know he has family that have access to his apartment in an emergency, but I don't think anyone that could do such a thing locally, ATM. I will check on the feasibility. If the kidney stone is successfully removed, then he is already scheduled for a short stay with a live-in PT facility before returning home.

A little something that I think you might enjoy when you get released. It's a series of images following the adventures of a bunch of young nuns and the flock of ducks (and other animals) that live with them. They're released on Twitter, but this image site has collected them all into a Pool of images. This isn't the first image in the series as the ducks don't get introduced until a few images in. Link is to the SFW version of the site: Pool: Original - Little Nuns (Diva)

After a handful of misadventures and paperwork snafus, Wonderduck is finally in the physical therapy facility. I gather it is not impressive, and may in fact be barely livable. But he is out of the hospital and will hopefully be back in hurdle-jumpingobserving condition in no time, or at least a week or two.

Get well soon, Wonderduck! Physical therapy is indeed a pain in the everything, but it's better than being flat on your back and stuck there.

Sorry for not keeping everyone updated. Wonderduck had to deal with a bout of illness in the hospital, which set back his recovery. He is indeed now in Physical Therapy; a live-in facility. He is working on rebuilding strength in his hip and leg, and it's been a slow processes. Brickmuppet and I have both talked to him a few times.

His spirits are good and the prognosis is encouraging.

This is probably good news.
