Late morning, Steve got up to leave messages at school and crawled back into bed. "I feel awful!" White Dog had already quietly gone around and alerted the rest of the Army that they were assigned nursing and Steve care duties for the day and that she would tolerate no action that made the patient uncomfortable. Every time Steve stirred or got off of the couch he had an escort to attend to him. There was a White One always at his side, even as he slept.
YoYoMa was in charge of entertaining the patient. He brought him a favorite stuffie and told Steve cat and squirrel jokes.
Steve insisted on preparing the pup's dinner meal claiming that he so enjoyed it that it would make him feel better. Quinn was at his heel the entire time.
