Awwwww, Munky. I have, in a way, been in your shoes and I know you can't describe the stress. Hang in there and lean on your DC family because we're here for you and I have been the recipient of this collective love and strength.

Sending rest and calm to you.

Aw Munky.

I wish I had a magic wand, could wave it in your direction, and make this all better. I can't. Still sending you good thoughts and sending prayers up. Try to get some rest. We'll be here thinking of you guys.

Munky, like the others ... so wish that I could be there to hug you and just sit with you. Know that in our minds - we are.

Munky_ So long he is fighting there is hope. Giving up, that is dangerous. I have a friend, who is severely ill, normal people die with in 2 months, he is still here 7 years later and all down to he hasnt given up and refuses to. He is still working, even though he short term memory problems.

Each day listen to see if you notice any improvement. That is the day you go and knock on their door and let him know how great he really is. Then you can say, "I knew him when." Be patent. It may be a while. Violins are a very difficult instrument to master.
