dear, fall 2010/spring 2011
oh my gosh what a year. walking with you was like spending days troding through a valley filled with amazing things and wonderous knowledge, and not realizing how far you have come until you pause for a moment to look back and see where you have been.
the moment turns into a while, and a little longer still. you drop your pack sit on it and see how far, far truely is.
wow you turned all my friends into grem-a-phobs but i loved you with passion and all the bugs you introduced me to. so grateful you were taught by a medical doctor his ability to explain from the treatment perspective was far better than re-memorizing general biology again. and to my kids sorry about all the unsolicitated freely given and nausiating information, but now you can tell your friends all about the microbs tranfered in a single kiss, and name all 37 of them! and tell them what antibiotic it will take to remove it from your system! hellooooooo Ciprofloxacin!
english my old enemy, how i loath thee.....
luckily i had back up...
thanks scott L and amy B. you got me through two, count them, two unmerciful english classes. and now i am your slave.....good trade.
ethics and values....the single weirdest teacher i have ever met in my whole freaking life........waste of time...nuff said.
nutrition....i think i was supposed to take you before i took micro, gereral anatomy, and physiology. and dr. barthel you actually marked that question wrong because "i gave to detailed an explanation of lipogenesis"....really? i don't remember you saying that we weren't allowed to used other information from other classes.........it was the only point i lost in your class....your the boss dude, whatever.
and all those other classes that keep teacher employed.....i learned something in each of you that was either interesting, enjoyable, or helped me grow in other ways.
pathophyisiology..... another medical doctor/ teacher, alot of stuff not written in the book, the testing seemed not only unfair but akin to swimming in an avalanche.
micro turned my friends into germ-a-phobs you turned me into a hypochondriac....
it got to be funny with my group of friends on the front row that you would list every disease aimed at a 46 year old diabetic with high stress and pronounced obesity. by the end of the semester i felt like my very existance was in defiance to the very laws governing fine sub atomic adhesion and expected to burst into flames at any given moment. the first B in my late college carrer. i have never felt so saticfied with and average grade. i'll take it, gratefully.
life....you have reminded me that people matter:
more than the medicine that heals them.
more than the doctors and nurses that work to help them.
more than books
more than the next test.
the very existance of life must give an enhanced sence of hope
hope of life give reason to treat, heal, and learn how to do it better.
so i will keep trying.
becca..... you have taught me how soft my heart is where my childeren are concerned. i'm glad you are coming home. in the next few weeks i will prepare a place for you...another bedroom, another bathroom. a seat next to me in church.
another carpenter prepares a place for you as well. teach my grand child about him. show the way. you can do it.
yep...been one great year. looking back on what has been crossed i see two sets of foot prints...
