Ever since Jun's 26th day, I've been going back and seeing just how many potential times he was being "manipulative": playing up is cuteness, acting more dense than he really is - not just to MC, but to everyone. It's both sad and fascinating.
Also, I've heard about occasions where a severe injury that doctors said were impossible to recover from managed to be healed, or injuries managed to take a far shorter time to heal than usual. (My Dad had an injury that was supposed to take two years to heal - healed in six-ish months.) Given MC's fitness and the support from his friends and family, I think he does have a bit more of a chance to fully recover than normal. His (our) decisions may influence this.
