We end the week with a reminder that even when Elly feels awful about something that happened to someone else, it's still really all about her.

(Strip Number 622, Original Publication Date, 2 June 1984)

Panel 1: Having returned home from taking Elizabeth to the hospital, Elly tells John that they are keeping her overnight for observation.

Panel 2: Elly then says that she's very sick and she herself feels very guilty.

Panel 3: John tries to console her by saying "Things like this just happen, Elly. Why should you feel so guilty?"

Panel 4: Elly tells John that she yelled at her yesterday,

Summary: This, I think, is what gets her to simulate caring....she doesn't want to be known as the mother who yelled at a sick child.
