Great piece of writing, again. This made me feel for Arnold so much... maybe it's because I had a close call when my mom had a heart attack and then had to go into the ICU the next morning.. I only experienced a taste of what could have been reality.. and it was absolutely terrifying.. I loved how Helga was in absolutely selfless form yet again, so much so that what she did for Arnold - making him break open about what he was feeling - probably raised Arnold's respect for Helga immensely and made all her bickerings and ill-executed vying for attention from him being considered annoying or bitchy in his eyes not matter anymore.

If this was any longer I swear I would've cried. I was on the verge of tears when Arnold was talking to Helga. Gosh, its a great story and so so sad.

I really loved both chapters. I can never bring myself to do more then put his grandparents in the hospital temporarily but I loooove fic that deals with stuff like this.
You managed to capture Arnold's grief perfectly and all of the character, especially Helga, felt really well written.
Great job :)

I'm a sap and I'm tired, and when you put those things together you get a sob fest. But my mom told me that when people cry for your writing that means it's really good. And if you didn't guess: I cried reading this. You're a good writer, kid. Keep it up! :)

I think you should get on with it and write more.
Because you know.
Been a while.
It's wonderful though. So sad. Poor Grandpa. 3

It's really sweet. I do hope you carry on because there need to be more written like this. I subscribe in hope.

I was surprised to see that this was the last chapter.
It was sad but very heartwarming at the same time - and overflowing with hope and the notion that all will be well.
Your descriptions of everything were beautiful. I loved the imagery you used and how you incorporated Gerald's room into that. I enjoyed seeing that, along with his home life and how you portrayed that he'll always be a loyal friend to Arnold. The brief Gerald/Phoebe hints added in were really cute too.
Also, it was nice to see everyone coming in and lending their support towards Arnold. It's so refreshing to see that since Arnold often forgets to take care of himself while he's in the midst of helping others. Yet, you captured his helplessness perfectly and how he doesn't like being the one to ask for other people's aid. The fact that he wants to be left alone and how he isolated himself from everyone and stopped caring about everything really brought that to life. It was done really well. You have Arnold's voice nailed so well, by the way.
Lastly, I loved the Arnold/Helga moment at the end and how moving it was. It was nice to see Helga being the one to come to Arnold's rescue for a change and how she was able to let her guard down around him. It was nice seeing Helga's heart in action and how she assured Arnold that he would never be alone - and that she, and other people would always be there to help him. I also like the end and how you implied the future that's in store for them.
Good work! :)
