          pgrundyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          He's finally home but very ill. He will be recovering for a good 4-6 weeks and then he has to start a rather difficult course of treatment for a chronic condition that could set him back another several months. Honestly, it's scary, but I will be here for him no matter what. Maybe not with money, but I'll be here.

          Seriously we are doomed. Even if he recovers, we could well lose everything. But somehow it doesn't matter now. Just getting him well matters.

      Hookahposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      True, but it was hard to get there, I think the next part while a battle of its own, goes far smoother of a road than the rocky one of starting out with a blank canvas. You have details and pictures that tell more than thousands of words. Now it's time to smudge what isn't necessary and polish it up.

    Congratulations.

    Is it a scary kind of story ?
    What about a synopsis ?
    How is your back ?
