About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

I'm awake and not at work. How wonderful...



Is anybody up? I had a lousy day. The Loungers never let me down...

...

Just say 'hi' or something...

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. I love you all...

I'm done with work for a while. 10 blissful days without clinic to look forward to...

everybody!...

I met with a transgendered patient today.

She had just undergone gender re-assignment surgery three months ago. She was still having some understandable pain and some bleeding, so I referred her to a urologist. She is new to the area. After she underwent the procedure, her family sort of disowned her.

She and I kind of hit it off, mainly over our mutual support for marijuana legalization. I'm not sure she knew what to expect with her new primary care provider, but we had a very pleasant visit.

As she was leaving, she asked me if I had ever had transgendered patients before. I told her "A few, but I haven't seen them for a couple of years." She seemed pleased that I was comfortable around her. I asked her to follow up with me after her visit to the urologist.

I'm glad she likes me. I'm a liberal, and a medical provider. If I can't walk the walk, I may as well turn in my liberal card...

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Plus, two shots of excellent Scotch...

I saw enough patients today to field five basketball teams...



I think I'm in love with Samantha Bond.





No. Scratch that. I'm definitely in love with Samantha Bond!


Monday, September 5th. The Labor Day Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.







"We are but warriors for the working day."

Henry V, Act IV, Scene 3, Line 109.

I visited with 104 patients this week...



I don't even want to move...

Thursday Night Wine-Buzz. (I'm on call tomorrow night...)

One more day of clinic, and then a three-day weekend.

Next week, I'm getting a reduction in my daily patient load.

Finally managed to get the clinic manager to see reason. You wouldn't believe how many of his family members I had to threaten to get him to reduce my productivity goal to something a little less insane...

Having another wine-buzz night, because why the hell not?
