Christmas Gifts

Look what I got!

Look what I got!

Just like a kid again (yes, that’s me!) this Christmas, I’m filled with the joy and wonder of the season. And just like a kid – it’s because of the many gifts I have received.

When I first delved into the world of social media, including this blog, Twitter, and Facebook, I had no idea where it would lead. The blog was meant to capture some of my more personal, non-medical thoughts, ideas, and inspirations. Twitter and Facebook posts started out as “medical” and are now a wonderful combination of personal and professional interactions. I had no idea that my life would be enriched beyond words by jumping into the online world.

The friendships that have developed are real and will be lasting. You all have opened me up to new points of view, have helped me find my voice in areas beyond medicine, and have helped me grow as a physician and as a person.

Thank you for these gifts – and wishing you all the joy and wonder of the Holiday Season.

  1. Thank you for passing on my post on a man’s perspective on living with someone with a mastectomy. As a result of your kind words, I have stayed in contact with many women living with cancer and also those who have been cured. At no time did I think that I would have cancer but I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in August and had brachytherapy 4 weeks ago today. The support I have received from my contacts has been heart warming. I am thankful for their presence in my life. Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
