    All I ask in return is that you take good enough care of yourself so that someday...

    "All I ask in return is that you take good enough care of yourself so that someday you can do the same thing for someone else"

    Is 'that' omitted before 'all' in this sentence?

    You could have 'that' after 'all'.

    I believe the 'so' is wrong. It should be either:
    1. "... take good care of yourself[,] so that someday ..." or
    2. "... take good enough care of yourself that someday ..." How good? "Good enough that ..."
