KiKi's condition seems to have stabilized, and I feel a bit relalxed for the moment. After seeing him the other day, he bounced back to being his old, frisky self. Everyone delighted in this change, and all I could think of was the satement made by Maurice Paléologue, the French ambassador to the court of the last days of Nicholas II's Imperial Russia when he wrote, ...it was like a match: in it's last moments. its flare is brilliant before it burns out forever.
