That we’re put right into action with the first chapter already was interesting, because everyone wonders what has happened to Don to be injured and in the hospital or on the way to it, obviously. It’s not put up with much basic information, such as an accident or a case gone wrong, and you anticipate the reason for the current situation. I like that, it’s sort of refreshing to read. This is not the typical injury-story, which makes me even more eager to read through all the chapters as soon as I can. Being injured on the job is something that happens often – there are very good stories with that the main topic – but this is something comparably new to me; an injury while visiting Charlie.
Not that I’ve ever been in an explosion, or witnessed one, but I feel that Don has been lucky to get away with the injury he had there. It probably could have been much worse, with broken bones or more serious internal bleeding. What’s nice to read it the family bond that’s there without a doubt. Both Alan and Charlie are there at the hospital, to be company for him and to keep him entertained. Charlie reading for Don until he fell asleep really was cute )
The complications fitted the story line just fine. The way his family was there for Don right after the surgery, with stroking his head and holding his hand made me happy. It showed the strong family bond again, and that they’re there for the other unconditionally. On another note, not really related to the story; I do agree with one thing Don said about his lunch… sometimes, hospital food looks and tastes like slime. I remember being in the hospital and being actual worse for wear because just looking at the food made me sick to my stomach. Back to the story now, Don breaking down was also something I expected. Being laid up in hospital is really something extreme that gets to one’s nerves after a while. It’s not the regular situation, and especially in Don’s state – there for a longer period, in pain, and with the prospect of not working for two months – it was to be expected. Taking “Small Steps” as title was fitting. This was a very thought-through story written in a nice style. I liked it a lot.

Thanks for another wonderful story of the family Eppes! I love how you write the interaction between the boys and Alan - that's the best part of the show for me, and you do such a good job with that. And some Don h/c certainly doesn't hurt, either - no pun intended...

Fantastic story, have enjoyed every minute of it.
Even though I like jelly, I'll never look at lime jelly the same way again, pmsl.
Look forward to your next story.

This has been a very enjoyable piece. I loved the interaction with Charlie and Don, especially Don finally opening up a bit and trusting his brother.
