I have the privilege of receiving hand written notes from grateful patients on a regular basis. The overarching message in each one is of appreciation for the great care they experienced. Comments range from very brief to more elaborate and all are very touching in their own way.

Recently, I was especially warmed by a note from a gentleman who had received care here. It was obvious that he was weak and frail as the writing was most strained and showed signs of a trembling hand. The words were simple but profound and expressed a hearty gratitude for the care he had received.

I read an article about concerns of an asteroid 350 yards wide hitting the Earth in 2036...but no fear, NASA scientists have projected that based on a flyby recently of asteoid Apophis, that we're going to be OK...it came as "close" as 9 million miles away this time.

Often this time of year can oddly enough, bring on some melancholy for me...but shouldn't it be "the most wonderful time of the year" as the song proclaims? Well, it truly is. There is much to be thankful for even when the storms of life undoubtedly overwhelm and shove challenges right in our way.

We have had great news, wonderful successes, and some tremendous awards that were bestowed upon the organization, and we want to celebrate those successes. Looking back, lots and lots of awards that are a tribute to the staff; to the physicians affiliated with this organization. I want to offer my personal thanks and appreciation for everything.

...that's what I used to proclaim about getting a Flu Vaccine...until yesterday.

I know, I know...I should know better, right? I worked as a bedside clinician for many years, have been in healthcare for 30 some odd years and have never received a flu vaccination. In fact, I was down right opposed to it. I am one of these quasi healthnuts that doesn't like to introduce stuff into my system, hate taking medications, and have read "both sides of the argument" about being immunized and not being immunized.
