We'll see how Jules is fine and what was up with the "Oh, no..." later this week. I just wanted to jump ahead to give everyone some happier feelings about this arc.
The bouncing back and forth with time to accommodate the story's pacing is strange, I admit it... but it was something I wanted to play with. I wont be certain of how successful it actually is until this arc is finished and I can go back and read it all at once. If it's too strange, I might edit it chronologically for the eventual book or something.
The nurse John is dealing with in panel one is the same one from a few years ago when he brought a sick, human George to the ER
