I am very happy to tell everyone that Adam proposed to me on December 30! It was incredible. It has been a whirlwind year, from getting into med school to my father's diagnosis and now our engagement...but that's how life happens, right?
My dad is doing so-so (thanks for asking about us, Lil!). He got a pretty serious infection after his biopsy but is on the mend with Cipro, although it's a slow process. He seems to be in good spirits - my mother tells me he broke down in tears when Adam called him last week to tell him about his intentions to propose; they were happy tears, though!
I see there's a lot of newbies who need some diarrhea advice...watch out, here I come!
