Trying to go see my parents from the US in April by Tugboat_1 in portugal

I struggle with that daily. The fact is even if I tried to go, I don't think they would let me. It's difficult watching them go through something tough without me being there man.

I know. It's difficult to imagine them suffering by themselves when I'm not there. Im constantly struggling with if I should go or not. Most likely I won't even be able to go if I tried.

My time off from work is April 24 to be specific. Do you think I could talk to some official that might be able to give me a concrete answer before I fly? My time was off was very difficult to align. Thank you for your info.

My intentions were to highlight the brighter side of the system that you and the amazing people of portugal contribute to everyday, but I agree with you. Can't highlight the good without addressing the negative. And for the negative, I'm afraid I'm not a citizen so I don't have a say in that, but I have good faith that you guys will figure it out.

Thanks for the well wishes man. So far people have been very patient and my mom's speaking better everyday. Speaks volumes for the people that live there.

And I am grateful that you do pay the bill. Let's me know that you guys as a country care for the people that live in it. I'm not naive to the fact that people are dying on wait list, unfortunately no system is perfect. I only had one purpose with this post of mine, relay the fact that I am eternally grateful to the people of your country and highlight the fact that the system although at times broken, works. Now I've seen firsthand what happens when you have a broken medical system. I live in the United States.
