M.D. Personal Journal and Roundup
I hope you all are having a wonderful and productive week. Work has been busy for me as patients are trying get all their health care needs in before the end of the year. We had our parent teacher conferences and both boys are doing well for the most part. My wife left for China yesterday for a short business trip so I have full parental duties until next week. I’ll be daddy taxi this Saturday- please wish me luck. It started to rain in Northern CA this week and I’m glad I got my fence repaired before the winter storms. If you are looking for a good movie to watch this weekend, I recommend The Man Who Knew Infinity. It’s a biographical drama about real-life, self-taught, genius mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (played by Dev Patel) and his friendship with G.H. Hardy (played by Jeremy Irons). I just finished this movie and it’s fantastic!
