Jethro's grandmother is in the hospital. She has a problem with her liver, the doctors aren't exactly sure what to do about it, but they're only giving her two weeks to live. Wouldn't it stand to reason that if they aren't doing anything more for her, and they are only giving her two weeks, that Jethro should get her medical records and take them to some of the different doctors he knows? Sometimes families can be as stubborn as MDs.

Somehow I don't think they see Jethro as anything more than a teenager playing doctor. That would be fun for me, but I imagine it's quite frustrating for him. Anyway, I won't say I'm taking a break, because I always end up writing in spite of it, but if you don't see Jethro or me around for a couple of days, you'll know why.

Jethro also knows the danger of getting professionally involved with a personal matter. Of course I'm not saying to stay completely out of it but to be aware of emotion-clouded judgements. I hope everything works out for the best.
