I really like this story, for some reason; when my asthma is playing up it makes me feel a whole lot better. So thank you for that :)

Good timing with your update.
I already had a bad feeling when Ryan was pretty honest about how he was feeling and had to be concerned and scared enough to give a feel details. For him to go beyond "not so great" has to mean that he knew he needed help ASAP. It's like the writing's on the wall with his test results and things are about to get a whole lot harder for him. I hope that Sandy doesn't regret leaving because he's the one who's closest to Ryan and who Ryan would want to nearby. In the ICU, it would be back to very limited visitors and one at a time, and it sure sounds like that's in Ryan's future and all that comes with it.
Thanks for writing more and having more of Ryan and Sandy bonding. It has to be very strange for Ryan to have someone who cares, but I wonder if he remembers how scared Sandy was the first night at home and when he couldn't help him. He wouldn't remember the seizure, but if things become worse again and Sandy has trouble hiding his fears, I wonder if Ryan will still be aware enough to know what's going on. Lots of possibilities, but reading this makes me scared and sorry for Ryan if that's what you had planned.

I really like this story and while suffering with asthma related stroppy lungs at the moment it has kinda made me feel better and take my mind of things considering they haven't decided to hospitalise me yet.
A very well written story :)

I think you added this new chapter while I was reading the other one. I'm glad. It answers questions I was going to ask. As much as I really can't stand Marissa, I didn't think that Ryan was sick before so quickly because of her. Now? It makes more sense with a little more time. Hospitals are full of germs, but she brought them as close as possible. A cold for her could mean major issues for him.
I like having the same doctor to sort of build on what happened before and continue the story that way. I'm also glad that the doctor gave a little away to show his concern. He can't alarm Ryan and Sandy, but he's human and he also has to be honest. Ryan's really compromised and vulnerable, and that's true emotionally but definitely physically. Struggling to breathe has to be terrifying and watching it and not being able to help has to be. I'm wondering if the doctor's warning about seizures will come true and if pneumonia is the diagnosis. What's scary about that is it's something that kills lots of people. Even if Ryan can't think about that and is all about just trying to breathe and feel just a little better, Sandy has to be worrying.
So Sandy had a very different childhood here. I guess that's supposed to make him relate to Ryan better? I just hope he keeps trying and he knows about trauma and flashbacks because of his work and cares because he cares about Ryan.
Thanks for the double update.
I'm glad that you're doing better and writing. I hope it helps you.

I just read your last chapter and your note. I hope that this means that things are better for you.
I like the honesty in this story, but I hope that it slows down with the interactions between Ryan and Sandy and Ryan and his doctors and nurses and there are more twists to come. I have the feeling that Ryan has a lot more to face and overcome and the Cohens might be lulled into a false sense of security. Ryan also has to be more than a little uncertain and scared about what he can't control. It seems like the other shoe is about to drop again, either because of the new infection or another difficulty because of Ryan's history that no one really knows about with asthma or injuries and abuse and neglect. It sort of seems like the moment when the past would come back to haunt him more than it already has. I'll be curious to see how that impacts the relationships and growing bonds. How will Ryan perceive his new guardians and how will they think of him as a result? Are they really committed? How scared are they and how can they help him if they don't really understand? Kirsten, especially, is very spiritual or religious, which I didn't expect. Sandy seems very true to character with his personality.
Thanks for writing again.

I'm sorry to hear about your own RL medical issues, but I hope you're able to handle everything as well as possible.
Thanks for continuing to explore and develop this story and the way the physical and emotional aspects are so intricately intertwined. Ryan's had to deal with both kinds of suffering and hasn't "caught a break" in either way for most of his life. At least now the difference is there are people willing to offer concern and comfort even if he still faces some of the same crises. There are things no one can control, but a little positive attention and compassion goes a long way. It's very reassuring to see the beginnings of some tentative bonds and how they evolve under duress.
Thanks for taking the time to update despite your own challenges.
