We all understand, Alistair, hope that Bronwen gets better soon. And be sure to take care of yourself as well.

Please—if you’re up to it—tell me that it is NOT “Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.”

You and she have had a great burden, over the last year or two. I SO hope that health and happiness are around the corner.

I wish the two of you strength, as you get THIS one sorted out.

Take good care….

Sorry sorry to read this. You two have had more than your share of health problems recently. You will both be in my thoughts. FWIW, I, too, had a very frightening adverse reaction to that medication that went away over time.

You and Bronwen are in my thoughts and prayers. Don’t worry about us, you just take care of yourselves first. So many of us have come to know you and your wife and I am sure a lot of prayers will be sent your way. You just take care.
