Amnesty is hereby granted

Remember when I was sick? I’m talking really sick, so sick that people looked at me and thought, “uh oh, this is worse than I thought. Scott might not make it.”

Some of my friends didn’t know how to act, what to say or what to do. I get that. I used to hate visiting people in the hospital. I felt awkward and powerless. So, usually I “didn’t get a chance” to visit and then felt even more awkward after people got out. I felt like they were needing an answer for why I didn’t visit. Uh, errr, umm …

Here’s the deal: I’m implementing full amnesty right now. That’s right. It means if you’re feeling awkward because you didn’t visit me when things got really bad, it’s time to let it go.

Liver disease cost me a lot. I hate that it cost me contact with friends I love. Let’s change that. C’mon across the “awkward” border and let’s pretend it never happened.

I can’t hold it against you because I used to react the same way when people got really bad. I stayed away too. I couldn’t handle it either so I got “too busy” to visit unless my wife dragged me along.

I’m not mad at you. In fact, I miss you. I want to know how you’ve been and what’s happening.

What do you say? Why not take me up on it?
