*happy sigh* Bloody friggin brilliant, my friend. Although I'm sure Carson's gonna do a pinprick test on Rodney at some point ot check his blood glucose levels... otherwise, if Rodney has a hypoglycemic reaction in his sleep, he won't wake up. *bites nails* My brother had a friend who actually died... poor bastard didn't know he was hypoglycemic, and thought he had the flu. *shakes head* Went to bed and slept, and never woke up again. AIE. Anyway, I love this story. Wonderfully written, hon. ----}-@
Author's Response: I did think about this. Honest. Don't worry - Carson has his little monitor in his pocket to check. He's too good a doctor not to (and we all know that Rodney's fine at the end!) I didn't write it because 1. I didn't think about it at the time, and 2. Sort of spoils the mood a little :) But rest assured, it's been checked!
What a horrible thing to happen to your brother's friend. Just awful thing to happen.
And, in other news, thank you for the kind words. They are so very much apprectiated.

Why do I share John's very bad feeling though? ----}-@
Thing is, you and I both know where Rodney is. And what he's doing. Ach... ----}-@

I read this before somewhere else. It is well worth reading again. I enjoyed as much this time as I did the first time.

Excellent characterization of John. Good job.
That was absolutely, perfectly in character. The dialogue played out well in my head, too. Funny, but with good intense little moments here and there.

This was lovely. I really liked the friendship and worry that Carson and John showed towards Rodney and that they were able to help him. Thanks for sharing!
