The painful, deep ache as I look through old photos. The events of last year are clear again, nothing has changed. MBBS is coming, I wish you could see me graduate as you wished so much. Yet somehow I think the news will get to you, when I do pass and become a doctor.

Reading cardiology articles from the 1950s... Suddenly realised I've been confusing myself for months! :( Not a good feeling close to MBBS.

Where the Wild Things Are.

I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

A weekend in 2008, Mom in the distance before being diagnosed with leukaemia. A month or so later I would ask myself why I didn't notice how pale she had become. Remembering her cute blue backpack, the brown hat she wore to cover her hair loss. Remembering how much every day counted.
It was a horrible shock that Mom was diagnosed with a second malignancy after living for almost 1 year with a malignant, aggressive brain tumour. Looking back on those days, I wonder how we got through them. I think of what Mom must have been feeling... She was so brave in the face of death. She worried about us before herself. She was feisty, demanding food, scolding me in her own way even when she was aphasic. I understood her well, even when she was aphasic. :)
Thinking of a young man who faces the diagnosis of cancer, without a family's support... It will not be easy. My heart goes out to him today.

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do

Today, the most physical pain I have endured (in my life so far). Undergoing a rigid nasoendoscopy and two biopsies. Having that rather raw, bloody taste after. Weirdest, most uncomfortable feeling ever! Haha.

And the strings, eee eee eee.

A warm Sunday, reading in the park (in the shade). Not very successful, think I'm falling ill today. Going to take some medication and sleep.

Is aspirin really called that..?

At the end of the day you're another day older.

This song is so powerful.

Les Mis, I will see you again one day...


When I was young and unafraid...

Met one of my old MOs today and what she said really made my day. It reminded me that there are still sunny days and that when you enjoy something, you feel happy working hard for it.
