It's funny that when you've bottled up or pushed down a lot of emotions they come out in weird and wonderful ways. For me I think all of the emotions of palliative care hit me yesterday while driving to work and hearing that Andy Barrie is stepping down from his broadcasting booth on CBC. As most listeners know, Andy has parkinsons disease and is finding the early mornings harder and harder on his day to day living. My brother hates Andy Barrie (mostly because he has a long standing habit of throat clearing even from his pre-parkinsons days) but I love him. I find him funny and relaxed and pretty amazing to keep working at 5 a.m. despite his disease. Cheers to you Andy Barrie.
