Hi

Cathy and me had another child. I had a five day break in the tour, which was nerve-racking. If the baby came early or late I'd have missed his arrival into the world.

Was he nervous because he had a break in the tour or because he was going to have a son???

Mike was sitting at his father's bed. I think that, as much as he was possibly given the character of his father, there was a sense of closure and peace and things being brought to some kind of understanding between them.

Does it mean that Mike and his father had similar characters, but when his father was dying they started to understand each other better, they came closer to each other, they were calmer (peace)?

That seems to be the idea,but it's awkwardly expressed. I wonder if there is a type or error of some kind in the quoted words?
eg as much as possible, given the character of his father would have a different meaning and seem more natural.

Best wishes, Clive

No, I haven't made a mistake quoting these words.

Thanks Clive!
