I don't think time spent in wrapstuff counts as living. Yes, those in wrapstuff are technically ALIVE, but it's like being in a coma, not actual life experience. But yes, she has lived longer than her sister now. We apparently agree on the midwife thing. Shenshen had opportunities to be a midwife, just not lots of them. And I DID say that yes, the look on Leetah's face could be the realization that she's missed so much of her sister's life; I simply don't think that's it. It's been decades since the Palace returned...why would she come to that realization NOW and not before?
