:S What the hay... So there must be some sort of spell that they didnt perform on him... I wonder who the person in the shadows is..

Answering the second comment first, I'll just say the person is definitely up to no good. And yes, the spell the A and E Healers didn't perform is pretty important to discovering all of Harry's injuries. Keep reading. I'm looking forward to your next reviews. Thanks for commenting.

Yipes, there was a cliffy! But it gets deliciously curiouser and curiouser. I so love and I'm glad he's still on the case.

You seem very well aware of what goes on with these kind of injuries. Is this all research, or do you know someone who went to a facility such as this. I'm really impressed with the level of detail. I do so love details!

Keep up the good work, Arnel!

It looks like I'm dropping all the right clues to keep readers like you guessing and wanting to read more. I have many favorite characters in this story, all for different reasons, and Ron is one of them. It's been fun writing him as a mature adult.

Most of the details in this story come from my reasearch, a grandmother who spent the last six months of her life in a hospice facility and also conversations with a close friend who is chronically ill. I'm with you... details make the story seem real and believeable. I'm glad you approve.

Thank you for your review.

I only spotted one thing today - just letting you know, its the National Health Service, not organisation (though it is an organisation, of course). But everything else has been completely spot on - you're such a good British impersonator!!

I adored Molly and Ginny's interaction. In all honesty, it reminded me of my mum and the way she looks after me. No matter how old we get, our mums are still there for us and it was touching to see that reflected in your work.

I also loved Kendra/James, I like that we see some of that romance again, its a nice touch and is nice to read, to step back from Harry's ailment and see that his children are still teenagers with a social life and interests of their own. You're doing an amazing job with the characters.

I can't compliment the way you are writing the characters enough, when Harry snapped at Ginny - it was so very real, and I love that you are showing just how hard this entire process would be. I like how you have ensured we see that Harry is struggling, and he isn't just sucking it up and being "a hero", but he's showing that he is human too.

Who is this shadow man!? haha. I loved the chapter. Sorry for the late review, by the way. Too much work, too little time

Thank you for posting, it was great!

This is quite an involved story. I am glad you are going into so much detail. As usual you are writing something really different and I love your stories. I understand the trip out of St. Mungos. I'm glad that Ginny opened the body bag as quickly as she did. That didn't help as much as it could have but it was good. I'm glad the healer noticed that problem. I'm so glad that Healer Stilwell is still looking for information and that he finally has the original admission form to St. Mungos for Harry. That should help. It looks like things are still going badly with Harry but with this new information hopfully Healer Stilwell will be able to fix it. Thanks again for writing. I look forward to more of this story. p

As a reader, I have always admired those published authors who can take multiple unrelated subplots and slowly weave them together into one cohesive storyline. When I sat down to write this story, I determined this was the story I'd try such a method of storytelling. I'm glad you find I'm succeeding.

Harry's problems seem to be compounding with each chapter as evidenced by his reaction to his exit from St Mungo's. You'll learn more about his reaction in the next chapter as well as what will be done for him by the staff at The Groves and Healer Stilwell.

Thanks for another thought-provoking review. I look forward to your reaction to chapter four.

I really like James girlfriend, Kendra. She seems like she has a good head on her shoulders and that she's helping him think things out.

The mystery with the hospital paperwork -- that's troubling. Someone is really up to something pretty rotten.

That ending, wow, what a cliffie my dear. You are certainly keeping your readers on the edge of their seats!

When I was creating the new characters for this story, as well as the children's personalities, I decided that James needed a girlfriend who would balance him as well as his mother balances his father. I'm glad you like her. I do, too.

I know you know the end of the chapter and the debacle with the paperwork are both pieces of the same puzzle, but for now, that's all I'm admitting to. Luckily, my readers only have a week to endure between this chapter and the next. Thank goodness for Thursdays.

Thanks for the thoughtful review.

That it is. It also sets up a lot of what's to come in the story. Thanks for reviewing.
