What disturbs me is how easily he now accepts that he could die and does not care if he lives or dies. While the doctor was impressed with his easy acceptance and has taken a liking to him for this, she has failed to understand the reason behind this. I do not believe this is merely a Jedi acceptance of life and death. It feels different to me than that. It concerns me that he may pass such a blithe attitude onto my son.
My challenge now is to find a reason for him to once more care about living.
