ts waiting for them, but it makes me feel uncomfortable."
n "For the first month or so, I asked the head cardiologist every time I saw him
for a rough estimate of when I'd be able to leave."
n "He never answered anything in a straightforward way, but told me to wait and
see if the treatment and surgeries worked."

hink that it's wise for you to be without supervision."
"Doctor" "At least not until we're sure that your medication is suitable."
"Doctor" "So, I've spoken to your parents about a transfer."
"Doctor" "It's a school called Yamaku Academy that specializes in dealing with d
isabled students."
"Disabled? What? Am I"
"Doctor" "It has a 24-hour nursing staff and it's only a few minutes from a high
ly regarded general hospital. The majority of students live on the campus."
"Doctor" "Think of it as a boarding school of sorts. It's designed to give stude
nts a degree of independence, while keeping help nearby."
"Independence? It's a school for disabled kids. Don't try to disguise that fact.
"
"If it was really that free, there wouldn't be a 24-hour nursing staff, and you wo
uldn't make a hospital being nearby a selling point."
"Dad" "Of course, that's only if you want to go. But your mother and I aren't rea
lly able to home school you."
"Dad" "We went out there and had a look a couple of weeks back; I think you'd li
ke it."
"It looks like I really don't have a choice."
"Doctor" "Compared to other heart problems, people with your condition usually t
end to live long lives. You'll need a job one day and this is a good opportunity
to continue your education."
"This isn't an opportunity, don't call it an opportunity. Don't call it a goddam
ned opportunity."
"Doctor" "Well, you should be excited at the chance to go back to school. I reme
mber you wanted to return to school, and while it's not the same one"
"A special school. That's"
"An insult. That is what I want to say. It's a step down."
"Dad" "It's not what you think. All of the students there are pretty active, in
their own sort of way."
"Dad" "It's geared towards students that can still get around and learn, but jus
t need a little help in one way or another."
"Doctor" "Your father's right. And many of the graduates of the school have gone
on to do amazing things. A person doesn't have to be held back by their disabil
ity."
"Doctor" "One of my colleagues in another hospital is a graduate."
"I don't care. A person doesn't have to be held back by their disability? That's
what a disability is."
"I really hate that something so important was decided for me. But what can I do
about it? A normal life is out of the question now."

"It's funny, I had always thought my life was actually kind of boring, but now I
miss it."
"I want to protest. I want to blame this lack of reaction on shock, or fatigue.
I could easily yell out something now - something about how I can go back to sch
ool anyway. But, no."
"I don't say anything. The fact is that I know now it's futile."
"I look around the room, feeling very tired of all this. The hospital, doctors,
my condition, everything. I don't see anything that would make me feel any diffe
rent."

d school what are those even like? As much as I try to put a positive spin on thi
s, it's very difficult."
