Prayers for little Anthony's family

My heartfelt sympathy to the family of five-year-old Anthony Turner of Texas. Prayers for comfort and strength for you all.

What I Love About My Job

I never learn it all.

Just when it starts to bore me, I'll get some new branch of medicine or new procedure or new treatment and it's interesting once again. By new, I mean new to me, of course.

Today's new thing was the use of gold seeds placed in holes drilled in a patient's spine bones to treat bone cancer. Just fascinating!

Signs of Spring

Spotted at Woodmans: The elusive Manschewitz EVERYTHING! matzo has found its way back to the Upper Midwest. A sure sign of spring. Yum. I'm munching one right now, getting all kinds of crumbs in the keyboard. EVERYTHING! matzos, in case you did not know, are embellished with poppy seeds, salt, onion AND garlic. I don't think they are kosher for Passover. I mean, they're kosher, as in pareve, but not for Passover. But they are sure good.

Sleep Sublim

I was telling Barry about something our friend Kathleen had told me: She said that she was dreaming one night that she was warm and safe and felt so happy that she began to purr. She awoke to find that her cat had cuddled into bed with her and he was the one doing the purring.

Barry asked me, "So when you dream you are warm and safe, do you dream you are snoring?"
