It also gives me lots to think of and relate to. Like the impotence of confronting overwhelming illness and just how much one can do, and how fate play such a role in recovery or lack, thereof.
This is Lin's favorite time of the year as we normally go off the Hawaii for the U.S.C. course on an update in Diagnosis and Therapeutics in Internal Medicine. We enjoy the luxury of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and I go off to class from 7:15 to 12:15 and revitalize my interest. She goes to a yoga class or two. We see old friends.
She tries to drag me to the beach and I watch college basketball. Life is good. Life is still good. She will recover despite the slow pace of improvement, and we will enjoy this luxury all the more.
I will be watching a lot of basketball. It's a great diversion. Bruins are a good team and better than last year, but they could lose anytime, as they just demonstrated at Washington. The PAC-10 tournament comes on Wednesday through Saturday, and I have no office hours. Sitting at the bedside and provioding encouragement to the most important person in the world, to me.
I wish I could report rapid improvement but this is the real world. I'll settle for a happy ending.
