A friend in need…

Things have been a little crazy around here, what with my first math exam tomorrow afternoon (!) as well as the usual craziness of dissertation writing. In addition to all kinds of academic stresses, sad things seem to be happening all over. It started with the passing of Sam, Alicia’s mom’s miniature dachshund. Several friends have had relative pass on this week, and though some were expected, and even welcome as an end to a long period of suffering, it doesn’t make the loss any easier. Finally, tonight I learned that a friend from the medical school who has been abroad in Uganda was in a serious accident recently. His situation is tenuous, and it is an all too scary reminder of how dangerous travel can be. I’ll be keeping him and his family in my thoughts, and hoping that he will pull through against all odds.
