Jim, sorry your visit didn't get any better for you, and my ex-bosses fave saying was "it is what it is". Sounds like you are taking the bull by the horn, and you should. While all that is going on, drink that wine, do what you like to do, enjoy living. Your story has a long way to go, and a lot of paths out there, keep on keeping on as they use to say. My best to you brother, make the very best of a potential bad situation, who knows what twists and turns may lay ahead for you. With you all the way.
