His face is pale and very much puffed-up and so it is with his hands and feet.As someone who has personally dealt with several illnesses, I am amazed at the number of times that I have had to catalog the lives and deaths of my ancestors who faced death when they were far too young. They often died from diseases that are easily treated today. They could have lived productive lives as I have been able to do.
Charles -- if you could only see your descendants now! You have a reward beyond measure.
