Every weekend and every night after work, my wife would put on her most optimistic face and sit with me in hospital during my leukemia treatments, and once my immune system improved we would take regular walks around the 14th floor, my floor, for Malignant Hematology. Just a few months earlier we were jogging partners. As we walked by the hospital rooms we would read the names of the other patients, silently taking note of who was new and who had gone, but never so bold as to wonder out loud what became of those who had left the floor. This was not the excitement we had planned when, as empty nesters, we sold our home in BC, downsized, and moved to Toronto for new opportunities and adventure.
