So I dropped off the social radar for a while. I think I started getting a bit more cautious about what I post and what I don't. Anything on my public accounts have become quite neutral and lacking as little personal information as possible. Not that I said much to them before, but there's even less now.

But honestly, there's been so little in my life, that I've had nothing to say. I've not been very busy. I still exercise, go out and do something every now and then. But I spend most of my time in that hospital with Min-chan or on the Rikkai high school courts. Their footwork is dreadful, it's amazing they even qualified for Districts.

I made a decision, though. After July, I'm going back to tennis. Minoru's pretty much guaranteed to be in hospital full-time now and she ordered me to return, because she's fed up of seeing me everyday. So that's something to train for, I suppose.

So...Min-min relapsed a week back. She hasn't gotten any of her limbs back into use, yet. I've been delaying it as much as possible for her sake...but she's gone into full-time hospital care now. She says that I could return back to the circuit now that I don't have to look after her at home, but I couldn't do that to her. She hasn't got many of her old friends around her. And having me visit only every two weeks or so? With sparse phonecalls? I couldn't do that to her.

I only remained sane because my team were always visiting. Even one or two days with next to no human contact except doctors? It's difficult. I can't just leave her, not for these first couple of months, anyway. With any luck, she'll get well enough to be released back into home-care soon.

I'm just tired on so many fronts.

And after this New Years celebration, I'm done and I can relax a bit more. Minoru's feeling a lot better and I think she's coming with me to the Nike New Years Party. I'm so relieved. Thank you so much for all of your help, Kura. I cannot express how amazing and patient you've been and thank you.

I'm visiting the temple on the First to wish for health, as I have done since I was 13 and will continue to do for as long as I remain paranoid. And health for Minoru, of course. My goal for this year is to do everything in my power to make Minoru more comfortable and accepting of her condition, until she can live with it by herself or an outside carer. I have no personal goals except my always long-term goal, which has been the ever elusive Golden Year. But I'll do it.

Then, after the visit, it's back to filming, which in hindsight, will actually be more relaxing than all the parties! I think we still have to film me killing a lot of people and blowing up parts of Tokyo. Which I will have an inordinate amount of fun with. If only makeup didn't take three hours every morning....

Back in Tokyo. And my plants are not dead. This is an improvement from last time. Minoru says it's still creepy that my house has more garden space than actual living space, but up until now, I didn't need the living space.

...I found the acting script though, Kura, and...there are a lot more lines than I expected. But it appears I am not the stereotypical villain! No huge expository monologue that make little to no sense! This is a step up for the contemporary villain. Seems people are learning from Marvel comics and Loki. But of course, the sister always finds something to poke fun at and it's at the fact that my hair will come down to mid-back, making me look more like a girl than ever. (It's good to know her mood isn't dampened by this whole thing.)

I....am going to sleep for a good long while, middle of the day or not.

I...I won't be participating in the first half of the tennis season this year. Maybe longer. I'm sorry Tezuka, it looks like our showdown may have to be delayed for a while yet. And I'm sorry to you Echizen, Kazuya, since I won't be able to have any official rematches with you two either.

I suppose I owe an explanation for this. It seems auto-immune disorders run in the family. My little sister Minoru has Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis. I knew there was something wrong with her! I just knew it! And it turns out she wasn't telling me this at all. I had to find out the hard way when she just collapsed in the middle of the street. I took her to the hospital and she was already a regular patient and everyone knew her by name just like they knew me. Imagine my surprise when they told me it was getting worse by the day and she is very likely to not be able to walk soon.

My parents can't look after her; they weren't even able to tell that there was something wrong with her in the first place. They were barely around when I was a kid and in the hospital, what's going to guarantee they'll be around for a quasi-adult? She needs someone more reliable to be there for a while, somebody who'll always be there. Or else you just go....utterly mad in a hospital when you can't do anything. You really do.

And it was a difficult decision to make...but I'm no longer the kid from ten years ago, who valued tennis above people. My family comes first. So, I'm sorry. I'll be back in Tokyo earlier than I expected. Minoru'll be living with me now. And I won't be leaving Japan for tournaments for quite a while. Not until she feels more comfortable about living with it. Since there's no cure for it.

I'm cutting out my ranting for those who don't want to read it. )

I've reached World Number One in the ATP rankings~ A very sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart to everybody who supported me along the way! I appreciate every single gift, email or kind word in my way.

It was fun playing in the round-robin style tournament, since I got to play all of my opponents, not just a couple like you do with larger tournaments. I can't wait to do it again, especially with the British crowd. (Though I could do without the rainy weather ;A;)

I'll be home for another two whole months without going to another country! I get to relax for a bit. I think I'll stop in Tokyo for a week before going to Kyoto to check on Minoru. In that time, will you meet with me for a meal or something, Genichirou? My treat, since I got paid by Nike today as well :)

And Atobe, I owe you a movie-trip. Contact me about that. Oh, and I must be missing people I need to talk with. I'll contact everyone later, once I've attended the afterparty.

-With all my heart, Seiichi
