Hello Redwood’s Fans!
How has your week been? Mine? Fascinating as always.
I did survive my husband’s 50th birthday party celebration.
Note to self: a 9 year-old may not be the best option to serve as a lookout.
My husband basically walked in unannounced! But, it was all good in the end. We did surprise him. It’s always good spending time with family and friends. There was enough food and liquor for everyone and also great to hear from so many that live out of state who sent cards.
Thank you all.
Then, when I think I’ve survived all of that, the dog (yes, you read that right) comes down with what I’m going to call strep throat. That was a hefty vet bill but what are you to do when they don’t eat for two days?
There is no rest for the nurse on the home front.
For you this week!
Tuesday: Author Martha Ramirez stops by Redwood’s Medical Edge to discuss a very personal story of her diagnosis of congenital heart disease and how it inspired her to write a children’s book.
Thursday: Book review of Things That Matter by Charles Krauthammer. If you don’t know much about Charles’s life, it’s pretty interesting. He became paralyzed from a diving accident while in medical school. Even though he had this devastating injury, he recovered, and was allowed to finish medical school. He even discovered a new type of psychiatric illness. He’s very smart and his thoughts on current day medical issues is pretty interesting.
Hope you have a great week!
