Photos taken this evening.

She has been eating over the past three days, which is a relief (she is eating in these photos) and she looks as if she is on the mend.
Certainly she has filled out a little and lost that emaciated look, but she is still not fully active yet, her right side – the one she shed a severely damaged leg – is a concern, as you may be able to discern from the top photo, but she is moving a little, which is progress.
I am still hopeful she fully recovers, but this may now take more time than I originally anticipated and may will include one or two more molts – maybe she will even shed another leg?
Besides, the last thing I want to do is see her fatten up, release her, only to encounter a wasp after 5 minutes.
So it looks as if she may remain a guest for a while.
Fine by me.
She is such a well behaved young lady!
