This week is Passover, the most important holiday for Gastroenterologists.
We celebrate on whatever weekend comes closest, so this past weekend we all headed to my parents’ house for a day of binge-eating, followed by collective severe gastronitestinal distress. Hooray for traditions.
This morning I had a check-in appointment with Dr. Max, who (as I said before) I like more and more each time I see him. He looked a bit tired, and told me he now has a 9-day-old baby boy. Aww! Remembering how difficult life was when I had a newborn, I tried not to ask him too many questions. But, two bits of good news – one, I’m feeling better than I have in a while, and two, he gave me a free 2-pack of Humira! Woo!
On the way into work each morning this month I’ve been enjoying this art installation, so I took a few (awful but best I could do) photos. Art in unusual places always cheers me up. I love how these are so real and yet beautiful, like Chuck Close’s art.
