Well...yeah, it's kind of not just a friend who's going through it. It's my dad...that's why it's kind of bugging me right now. It probably wouldn't bug me half as much if I wasn't on the other side of the country right now. He's a tough little bugger, though, my dad...and I know that he'll pull through.
I hope your cousin is okay, saturnschild. Trust me...I share your concern right now. I hope everybody pulls through alright. Let me know how everything goes...and if things end up going downhill, you can always talk to us, and the shack's always open. ^^
Momintai...what does that mean, momintai?
