His visit is brief, on Thursday (after a much needed haircut) he goes back to Elmira. On Friday, he leaves for a month of travel - starting in Istanbul and ending in Athens. Right now, he is writing a paper on Islamic Art and recovering from surviving Calculus* with his GPA intact.
We celebrated his two weeks past birthday with a fabulous meal at the Falafel Bar. I was part way through an amazing grouper in phyllo when I looked up to see my favorite doctor walk into the dining room.
Since it is no secret that I have an inappropriate crush on Dr. M., the exchange that followed was priceless, especially when he introduced me to his mother as his favorite patient. However, he did not give me a clue as to the results of last weeks lab work, so I guess I can continue waiting by the phone.
In other news, I finished the latest round of shots into my knees and they seem to be helping already. Our weather is showing some signs of perking up and the bridge commuting continues to try to break us.
I continue to receive regular packages full of socks and other goodies, the latest of which contained (the socks are for another day) these sleeves:
From the needles of Cookie, in what I think is Malabrigo Sock, a set of sleeves to cover from wrist to elbow - the perfect accessory for me and my wardrobe of 3/4 length sleeves that I lately find leave me wishing they covered and warmed more.
I love them, and her.
*The entire ride home, all he did was talk about math stuff, lots and lots of math stuff, math they didn't have when I was his age, I think.
