This is a first step toward a new approach to re-starting the Lubachka project as epistolary fact-based novel writing. While today's installment is written in homage to the inimitable voice of my father, Michael William "Brother Mike" Gural, on the 15th anniversary of his death, the posts moving toward a new style of completing Lubachka will come mostly from my mother's voice, as best as I can represent its breadth and power. I suspected this when I spoke with her yesterday as she described pain in her quadricep that limited her ability to perform physical therapy. I learned from a nurse at the hospital that the rehab hospital, CareOne at Redstone, took her off Eliquis which prevents the clots. I have no idea why this decision was made without consulting me.

Wow, Natasha. This is a fascinating project. I look forward to reading it.

Don't tiptoe around the issue. Earlier I mentioned "Even if the church believes a bunch of crazy nonsense, and she believes it too, I still really like her and would like to see whether we can have some good intellectual conversations about this stuff. It comes from patience, tolerance, positivity and goodwill not just for our families, but for the people that our spouses are positively impacting, as well. Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse. In many ways, you yield some authority to the church. Most of us were suckled on that teat too. Sometimes I wonder if it's "Better to end it now and cut off the limb and let the stump heal".
