I wasn't sure about this page, because it's hard to get the feel across on the page.

Looks good to me too.
Panel 6 initially confused me, but then I saw panel 7, and I was all like "oh!" :D

Also, that bite in panel 3, very playful. :)

Cockblocked by a story...

I suspect that will be temporary, the heartrate monitor is more likely to stop them.

On a sidenote, Alis is very calm about this.

I agree. How did her mom make it?

@sigpig where did you get your avatar?

Lots of people use self portraits as avatars.

Well, her mom is a doctor, she may have been away working at a hospital.

Oh my god, it just clicked for me that her mother looked sad and then said shes going to take a long vacation starting the day of the surgery, is she donating her lungs for the transplant??!

Yeah, that seems quite likely.

Not sure about that. Right now, organs are being "grown" experimentally in labs using a biological lattice as the framework. Alis' lungs were perfectly fine until they were literally being eaten away. In the future, it wouldn't be a problem to cultivate new lungs using her own genetic material as the base. The only obstacle would be having enough time to grow full sized replacement lungs.

If there's anything I love, it's little strings of hair hanging in front of a girl's face.. but in panel 3 I almost thought it was some horribly oversized and mangled nose.. because sometimes my brain is faster than my eyes.

I just realized something... she knows the number of breaths her father took before dying. That means she spends a lot of time in this memory.

That last frame, counting breaths. Tragic, but true, the things that you lock onto during a tragedy.
