In Memoriam

I'm sad tonight. One of my patients from a few days ago is dead. This old man smiled at me and told me he was alright after he fell down the stairs. I was hopeful, and I worked with a bunch of people to keep him alive. And so he was for a few days.

Life is precarious, especially when you are old. But some older people are more alive than others, and he was one of them. God bless you, old fellow, and watch your step up there!

I see you have added me as a link. Thanks. I am reading R World and Your Ever Well-Wisher lately. I'll try the others, given your good taste in blogs.
