Old library days
I managed to get some work done last night. I sat in the library with Anne and read a bit from my Surgery text books. It’s a nice feel to study in the library here in College. It was my haunt as a student (only pre-exams though). The librarians remember us from our college days and they have been keeping me in their prayers. Every time I go in they ask how I am doing and are really nice. My friend Abhilash used to sit outside the Lib and read his books spawled over my bike - he was there to watch the girls though! - He's now a MD Medicine resident. The picture here is a group of us who went to BBC - Bagayam biriyani centre for lunch.
Back then as a student in study holidays Anne and I aimed to reach the Lib at 8 AM when it opened – I would invariably be late and charge in at 8:30 on my bike (the Librarian would give me a ‘late again?’ look) , smile, sit sheepishly next to Anne- study for ten minutes then excuse myself to go eat breakfast! Hopeless!! God knows how I made I through Med school. Anne is one of those sit now – never get off your butt type of study types. I am totally opposite in that way. Heck we are opposites is so many ways – but opposites attract don’t they!
Tomorrow I have my pulmonary function test at 8:30 am and a patient from my thesis follow up is here so I have to go and check him out. I am doing my surgery Thesis on rectal pressures using a manometer (Anal manometry) and since I am on chemo and sticking fingers up a rectum are not allowed –Anne is going to help me. "for better or worse" there is no doubt this is the worse! It should take half an hour –if all goes well.
Appa will come in from his meeting in Delhi late tonight – we will have to defrost him in the microwave – the temperature is 6 degrees there! Aaaagh!
