Hi Tom,

Not the religious type here, so I can't offer much in the way of
prayers, but it looks like you've got quite a few of those on the way
already. Just wanted to chime in and say that I hope the festive
season doesn't put you and yours through the ringer too much this
year. From memory, I think you have a young son right? That "like a
kid at Christmas" saying is there for a reason, he'll be a little ball
of energy whatever happens so long as Crimbo is on the TV and in the
neighbours windows. Focus on him, it'll help.

Outpourings of sympathy won't actually change anything, but shout if
there's anything I or we can do other than keep sending you positivity
in whichever way we each subscribe too.

Chin up bud...
Scott
