Glad that Sam was there when John woke up...wonderful chapter as always!
Joleca chapter 7 . 10/14/2008
John opened one eye and whispered, “Am I in Heaven?”

works for me! as much as Bailey would have wanted to be there, I'm glad it was Sam that John saw first... (just like the other time John got shot and woke up in the hospital to see Sam).
Violet Angel2 chapter 5 . 8/16/2008
Wonderful story! I'm so glad that Grace is there for the rest of the team, and I hope Sam doesn't keep feeling guilty about what happened (or if she does that one of her friends realizes it and helps her come to grips with it).

More, please?
Joleca chapter 5 . 8/15/2008

Great chapter.. I knew it was a given that as soon as Grace was there, she'd be on the inside finding out exactly what was happening and how John was... Considering what happened, John could have been in far worse shape but looks like they did get him help in time... Still, not going to be an easy recovery with all the blood loss, broken ribs, fractures, bullet trauma, possible (probable!) infection and hypothermia.

and "Nurse Linda"... hm do I sense a tie-in coming here? Bailey taking on the "father" role... something John really needs, a loving father who cares for him, not the one that he tries so hard to forget and hide in the darkest corners of his memories... and putting everyone down "kin".. I love it, after all, they really all are family and the only family that John has..

so, you know how it goes... Update soon.

Just discovered your story, and I am enjoying it, looking forward to seeing how it will end.
Joleca chapter 4 . 8/11/2008
4 all at once Sharane... you've been busy!

I like this, good feel, banter between everyone is just right... Slipping back into the camaraderie they once had, but still a little bit cautious..

Not really sure why John wouldn't want Sam to know anything about Kate though.. Maybe still to raw for him to really face (plus the fact that we all believe he loved Sam, just couldn't ever let her know).

Of course, now you have me really worried about John... first the broken ribs and now he's been shot... I can almost hear someone in the background yelling "man down", "agent's been shot" and calling for the ambulance! I know in the long run, John will be fine, but I have a feeling this isn't going to be a quick or easy recovery. (bring on the angst!)..

With John's comment about joining his mother (which of course we know he won't), I have a feeling he's going to be reliving a lot of the horror and trauma of his childhood on his way to recovery.. Even though he could have done nothing to stop it, I think he stills blames himself for his mother's death.. he was a child and both he and his mother were abused by his father but I think he still feels he should have been able to do something.. and I think he's feeling the same over Kate's death (maybe because he never really could admit his feelings towards her until it was too late).. He didn't pull the trigger and he couldn't have stopped the shooter, but I think he still feels as if it was his fault.. Just my thoughts of course..

looking forward to chapter 5!
