Dear Josh, Thank you! You'…

Dear Josh,

Thank you! You're the best.

We are back in Boston, but on parental leave, so hiding out away from the the hospital.

Thank you for your support of me and the BWH Marathon team. Training has had its ups and downs, as had parenthood. As you’ll know from my last marathon-related email, we recently arrived home with our new (but very-long awaited) son Emmanuel. Adding Manu to our mix has had the joy of answered prayers, and the challenge of rapidly introducing a new, non-English speaking, 5-year old boy to the family. We are all reeling a bit, especially big brother Zachary. We find ourselves most days digging in for patience, grace, compassion, and wisdom. I am happy to say that week-by-week we can see hopeful changes, and we have much to be grateful for (institutions that give us each 12 weeks of leave, a town with excellent resources in terms of therapists and clinicians, support of family & friends, etc).

In the midst of this, still training for the marathon, which I run for lots of reasons – the joy of running, supporting an inspiring institution, solidarity with my former patients from the 2013 bombing. Next year will hopefully run agin with funds directed to the global surgery program at BWH. Thank you for your ongoing support. It means a great deal to me – it is great to have you on my team.

Heading into Marathon weekend now... Looking forward to Monday!
