Duckie was invited to frenemy's birthday party. She said she would go because they share a lot of friends and A hasn't been too bad toward Duckie lately (they hardly see each other). It was supposed to be last week but A was sick so it was postponed until today. Duckie is not 100% yet. She is still tiring easily and generally worn out and it was a long party: 1 to 5pm. So I told her that we would compromise and I would allow her to go from 3 to 4:30pm so she wouldn't be too worn out. A's mom thought that was a good idea and I, of course, stayed. There were over 20 girls at the party when we arrived. Every single girl (even A) starting shrieking "Duckie is here!". They swarmed her and were hugging her; all saying things like "I missed you" & "I'm happy you're okay". It warmed my heart.
