Dear Marilyn,
you don't know me but I heard of you in a message posted to a mailing
list. I'm very sorry to hear that you need to spend a few weeks in the
hospital with nothing to do. But thinking is doing! I suggest that you
spend these few weeks thinking about what you want to do with the rest
of your life. There are lots of important things to do, just pick
some! And recover soon!
