Grim Reaper

The GP came in today—dressed in black—and asked how Simon was doing, how he was feeling, and Simon had said he was okay. The GP also stressed that if there was anything at all Simon still wanted to say to anyone, now was the time. And also the other way around: if we have anything to say to Simon, we should do it now, not tomorrow.

Simon was tired after the GP visit and wanted a rest. I asked if it would be okay if I stayed and did some work in the room while he slept. Simon said that would be fine, and then added: "You're that scared are you?" — "Not scared, just don't want to miss it if you wake up for a bit."

Adrian came to visit Simon some time after that, and then stayed a while to talk to Liduina and Maya. Simon said it was good to see Adrian, but didn't want to go into any detail. I think he'd had enough of touchy-feely talking after all the doctor's questions.
