I got the ideal "get well soon" gift for Akira!
ThinkGeek sells these awesome Giant Microbe plushies. They have a new one, a Red Blood Cell!!!
I got one shipped and included the following note:
"We heard you were losing red blood cells. Thought you might like one that's much harder to replace. Get well soon!"
I told Chris what I did and he cracked up. Told me that Akira loves those and has been asking for one.
It's a terrific feeling knowing that you've picked a good gift. And thinking that it will make him chuckle is making me very happy.
