In case anyone's wondering why fibroids seem so much more serious here than they often do now (not that they're not serious now, if that makes sense!), from what I could find out when researching, knowledge about how to treat them and the effect they had on fertility was a far greyer area in the 50's than it is today (hysterectomy was a common treatment then), and it seems to have been presumed that infertility would result from them in more cases than not.

Several years ago on the CBB, Patmac was writing a story called The Village Boy about Reg Entwhistle. She and I used to very occasionally have each other's characters visit our stories, as they were both within EBD's canon universe. My Mike van Alden (Corney's husband) popped up a few times early on in her story, and her Dorothy (Dorothy Hatcherd, a minor character from the Tirol days) and her husband Hugh (patmac's own character) pop up in mine here, and once more later in this part of Swiss Family Watson.

The Village Boy is in The CBB archives - it's a great story, if you want to check it out.

Ignore my previous note - not a double update, as it all went on one perfectly well! Apologies to whoever left the review - I accidentally deleted it when I deleted the extra chapter.

A second and final appearance by Patmac's Hugh & Dorothy - see my earlier chapter notes. She had previously borrowed my character, Mike van Alden, for her drabble A Village Boy, where he had been a friend of Hugh's during their war days. See that drabble in the CBB archives for more on that.

If anyone wants to read about Evvy actually breaking the news to Edgar, it's the last post of the prequel, A Second Chance, which you can find my stories.

And this is the last post for Chapter 2. Huge thanks again to everyone who has read the story and to all those who have left reviews. I really appreciate you taking the time to read it and for leaving your thoughts, and I really hope you've all enjoyed it.

I'll start posting Chapter 3 sometime next week. :)
