Indeed a Loss

I have been a somewhat erratic and irregular, albeit interested
follower of Anna Donald's blogs on BMJ and especially loved the way in
which she could make the reader feel a part of her own life and thoughts.
I especially remember her post after a serious adverse reaction due to
chemotherapy overdose. The way in which she brought humor and her
scientific musings into a devastating incident that might have caused
infinitely more debilitation and inaction in most other people inspired
wonder in me.

I am sure she will remain etched in the memory of her peers as a
stellar individual.

And I guess I voice the thought of her many admirers (blogworld and
otherwise) when I pray that her soul rests in peace.
