I was just wondering what had happened to JD the other day. Only met him a couple of times, but he was a top bloke.

Let me expand for you Commander,

Not only have i been very sick Malaria,
My unborn son has 2 holes in his heart, which may or may not be operable.
So far the consultants fees have cost more than my annual rent.

On top of that, I just found out that both my grandfather and dad died suddenly just after Christmas.

I am therefore flying back to the UK tomorrow for a double funeral....so losing 2 generations of ones family in one go is kind of "rough" so to speak.....

If you wish me to "expand" further, just ask

JD

I don't know you but thank you for kicking my ass back into perspective about what really matters(I have been moaning about losing some work).
You really have had it rough.I hope the baby pulls through and you and your family enjoy better luck and happier times in the near future.
Sincerely,
E.
