Well, the reason it's scary is that my marriage really DID work out in the end. I mean, we're not at the end yet, but we're having our 20th wedding anniversary this year, and we lived together for four years before that, and we're still together. If this triad thing hadn't come along, I think there's really no question at all that we'd be together until death did its thing. So we're trading a certainty, or as close to it as you can get in this business, for a pretty big unknown. And that's scary no matter how small the non-zero risk is. But we're forging ahead because the potential up side is so huge.

That pretty much covers it. It's terrific at the moment, in every way. And it's great for me to read about your situation and the way you're addressing the obstacles that come up, so I hope you'll keep posting updates.
