For my interested readers, I will likely be with the good doctor in the next 48-60 hours. Unfortunately, the events which have accelerated his return, slightly, are not how I would have scripted this homecoming. And they will require a slight detour before we are all back safe and sound in our Seattle-area home.
If ever there were a time where your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes might be worthwhile, this would be that time. Let your thoughts be with those military pilots that bring my precious cargo stateside; let your thoughts be with our commercial pilots that will take me and my two precious cargoes to reunite with their daddy; and let your thoughts be with DrChako's family - they need them most.
More later . . . the Chako family may be dark for awhile.
