I thought i'd lost someone, a very important and dear friend, and happily it looks as if we may be able to salvage a friendship after all. I'd just about gotten to the point where I had resigned myself to the loss. I was actually quite stunned by the sudden resurgence of communication, maybe even a little wary. I eventually called him back and we talked for quite a while, like we used to. I think we both missed that.
I don't know, I think it's good.
Also, I am well on my way to recovery from the SARS.
