Today I went into my father’s study-the last time I was there was just after his death last year. It is still filled with many memories of his working life as a physician. The room has for the most part been left alone. This bookcase contained some of his medical texts as well as his first microscope, a drinking stein from medical school and a plastic model of a heart. I remember the model particularly well-I think all of us took that or the model of a kidney to school for science show-and-tell. While sad to see these things, I am also reminded of the strong and vibrant passion my father had for medicine.
