Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 174 )

  In reality, I suppose what I was really looking for was a younger version of myself. He must be totally committed to the care and well-being of his patients, particularly the poor and needy.

He must be skilled in all aspects of medicine, be prepared to experiment to find new cures for established ailments. He must be open to new ideas and methods. It must seem like I am seeking the impossible, but I feel sure that there is someone out there. Someone who will fit in perfectly, its all a matter of patience, I suppose?

I had placed adverts with the medical journals, there was nothing more I could physically do but wait patiently for potential junior partners to reply to my adverts.

In the meantime, I still had a busy surgery to run and staff to organise, although in all fairness to Jenny and Emily they took very little organising, they seemed to know my every wish five minutes before I did, so organised were they.

I should have understood that everything would not just fall into place at my bidding, I had been very lucky with the girls, but a Doctor was something altogether different. If I were to work with him, there were so many things that had to be just right.
