Mr. Wiesel has refreshened in his mental stability a bit by returning to his ordinarily considerate self. He provides his friend with advice and promotes keeping faith in one's self. Thus far this hope has proven to keep Mr. Wiesel alive, however, I worry that as condition decline he will give up. His physical state remains weary and he has lost much energy. His main cons are his declining physical state, which will progressively die as he suffers from the horrid winter conditions.
