Evan's doing a wee bit better. He wasn't on the right pain medication before, I think that's what was affecting his moods so badly.

His physio's going better than expected, they're hoping he might be on crutches within a year. You just never know with spinal injuries. I've been at the hospital every day, so's his mum. I think that's helped, too. His mum's just...an amazing woman, really. She's keeping the nurse's station in pies - every time she leaves to get something from home, she reappears a couple of hours later with a pie or something else she's baked.

I'm handing my resignation in. I can't go back to work, not when Evan's like this. He needs me here, more than they do. Keller's perfectly capable of running the medical department out there.

Have you told him you're resigning yet?

I'm planning on doing that today. Do you...I know you're not him, but how'd you think he'll take it?

Keeping in mind that I am not him, and I don't know how he's different from me?

...not well.

Aye, of course. But you've a better idea than most.

...Ok. I don't know how I'm going to tell him yet. *sigh* Can I ask why?

You're giving up Atlantis for him. That's a lot to live up to, and chances are he's still feeling responsible for what happens in the city. If they lose their CMO because of him...

It's a lot to carry.

Aye, but...

Don't get me wrong, Atlantis is wonderful. But I'm bloody fed up of the IOA interfering in everything. And I'm still no happy about what happened with the retrovirus. Evan knows that; yes, I'll miss Rodney and my other friends, but part of what made Atlantis so special was having someone to share it with. Can't exactly have secret romantic picnics on secluded balconies by myself, now, can I?

Right, I'm away to tell him. Wish me luck.

It isn't so much about you losing Atlantis as it is about Atlantis losing you.

But good luck. I'm sure whatever happens, you'll work through it together.

I'm glad to hear he's doing a bit better, and that his prognosis, while slow, looks favourable.

...And how about you? How are you holding up, my friend?..

Aye, it'll be a long road, but we'll get there eventually.

I'm surviving. Better now I'm here with him.

Well, I'm glad to hear that. On both accounts.

If there's anything I can do for you, don't hesitate to ask.
