    It’s sad that you’re allergic to seafood, almost all of my favorite foods are seafoods. 😦
    I really liked what you said that you’re often dreaming about how Inigo would look like back then. It’s really sweet.
    And I also like how honest you are that you cry when your patients die.

    also, i admire your honesty on things…and the hidden humor….number 13? i used to tell my kids, my dad was born rich, he never worked his way to maintain that stature…we lacked many necessities when me and my sibs were growing up…the brother next to me (im the eldest) nearly earned him the wrath for being “less fortunate” than when dad was a child…but when dad passed away last november, he could sure flood a river for crying…
