Thanks for writing through all the ghastly medical stuff, Louise.  Hope you can rest this weekend!

SPOILERS






Henry is proving to be an invaluable addition to the department.  He hones in on the real issues and doesn't allow the extraneous drama to distract him. 

Excuse me?” Henry blinked back at him. “Did you just insult my experience or did you just compliment my youthful appearance?”

 ;D   Oh, very good.  It's interesting that Sanchez compared Henry to Joe.  And his comment about Ellery was even more interesting, and troubling.  Reynolds has always been the subject of teasing and eye-rolling, but now there is some real animosity, resentment, and curiosity thrown into the mix.   :-\   They have their work cut out for them, that's for sure.  Thanks, Louise.

Things are improving!  But work has been kicking me in the knee, and I just went through another round with the doctor, and now I'm supposed to schedule physical therapy.  I am really REALLY looking forward to getting out from under this weekend at last!

Working on it at this hour... yes in fact it is 5 a.m. and I can explain!!!

ETA: Monday night - going on midnight and I'm working on it still - I can't believe all of the crap that is trying to get between me and this chapter!  You will see why when you read it!

OMG, I'm exhausted just from reading that.  Chief Deputy Ellery Cantrell is one piece of work!  Hopefully his health will start improving soon b/c I think his family is about at the end of their ropes with him. 

Very interesting about the testing, though.....  Thanks, Louise!

It exhausted me to write it. No matter how I tried that would NOT come out in one fell swoop - but things should go more quickly - just as soon as I deliver a design document for my customer.

Bad news for me: I had an MRI this morning and have a torn meniscus in my knee joint, which will require extensive physical therapy. But the good news is that I got a lot of relief from the ultrasound treatment, and stopped hobbling on my way home.  It'll be hobbling tonight but... I can always put my foot up and rest for a while afterward!

Oh, Louise, ouch!  That sounds so painful!  I'm glad the ultrasound helped somewhat.

Gettin caught up here, it's only 1 p.m. so I've got plenty of time to work on the next chapter - I had to go back, AGAIN, and get caught up on the different threads of the story.  This really is quite intricate a plot ain't it?
