She sent me a cell phone picture of the section that the dock-tor (heehee) allowed her to keep. This is not the whole splinter, just about half of it after he cut it in pieces to aid the extraction process.
The G2 pen was not driven into her foot, it is just for a size reference.
She is healing nicely by the way and will be joining me at the National Guard Officers club today in San Agustin for the wedding of my cousin's daughter. I want to call her my niece, because I always think of her that way.
Anyway, it's her big day and we are thrilled for her. Emma, Katie, Em's pal Laura, and I will be representing for the matrimonial event.
I will be wearing the sunglasses below when I am outside.

Not too worry, she will show up often from now until next winter.
And in one last bit of snakey news, Stewie the cornsnake has broken out of his winter slump and shed his old skin. He's bigger, bolder, and bodaciously beautiful.
No Peeps for me please ... too much like eating candy tofu.
