Walking around in squares is only one step removed from running around in circles. I had a burst of energy this morning and have already finished 16 of today’s laps. My friend Thomas is a cross country runner. I’m wishing I had something equivalent here – the corridors are getting a little repetitive. Varying the routine by changing directions doesn’t make any difference. Dodging food carts, cleaning supplies, other patients, groups of doctors with big roll-around work stations, nurses, techs, and service assistants is only marginally more interesting and slows me beyond my already slow pace.
Food and I are deadlocked in a stony silence today aside from a few corn flakes but at least there have been no belligerent confrontations.
Having said all that, I’m extremely pleased to continue feeling so well today. The doctors and nurses say I look good, too, but they are paid to say stuff like that ;-).
I’m adding a few new photos now.
