Today is my sweet kid’s 13th birthday, so I am officially the parent of a teenager. I have no idea how that happened. A minute ago she was a newborn and now she’s this funny, interesting, incredibly smart kid who makes me proud every day. Naturally we spent the weekend celebrating (ziplining and dim sum, anyone?) and gorging on homemade Hostess-type treats (my spouse whipped up Twinkies, Ho-Hos and Cupcakes complete with squiggly frosting). Pretty much the only thing I could do after the weekend calorie bombardment was to loll around last night and surf my social media sites. Which is what I did. Here’s what caught my eye since last we spoke:
Doesn’t matter the profession: never stop learning
Guilty (and I am one)
Does your ED take appointments?
Kim Day, remember me getting into it with a warden over this very topic?
I love this idea
“Patients not only have a right to information but also have the right to refuse medical care…” (hint: this is true for our patients, too)
Emphasis on the slow…
…case in point (warning: language)
I’ll be adding this to our conversation about social media
Fascinating graphics on rape in conflict
I hope this is true
This whole thing has been appalling
Coming to DC? The new silver line is running!
