Daddy, I like the music.TrevorI like the helicopter Daddy, I need you to go on the helicopter.Tyler
It is pretty cool to hear how you are and what you are doing. I shared you blog site with Dr. Berne, my office mate... Recognized the OR from Dr. Rhees presentation last week. Love that the Texas hat was so prominently displayed in your video! Keeping the lazyboy warm. You'll have to fight to reclaim it.Rebecca
Los,The music selection threw me at first, but only at first. Most of us non-surgeons find the very sight of an O.R. a little terrifying, so it is easy for us to forget that for medical magicians like you -- and your patients and their families -- surgery can be one of the most beautiful and uplifting things in the world. The patient survives, and a new day is born. Just like the George Harrison song, only cooler, and with palpable consequences for real people.--Tio
Dude, love the music. Good to see you are in your element. Life is all fun and games here in LA....in other words, nothing has changed...make sure the next video clip has some 50 cent (i am assuming you know who he is...). Take care, we miss you out here..Brother Man (Ali)
OK, I have to say it again, HOLY CRAP!! This is incredible. Thank you as always for sharing your experiences. I am so completely touched by your site, I am compelled to look at it daily. Knowing you are there is making everything so tangible. It is so amazing to see you and SURGERY! I NEVER thought I would be able to look at someone in the OR, but I feel it is necessary. As always, you're in our thoughts and prayers. Karen
Los,Steely shared your blogsite with Steve Sims and me. I managed to miss the action as I got out of the service one month before 9/11. I did help with the transition to the Narkomed M field anesthesia machine that you guys are now using. I trained many of the Army and Air Force anesthesiologists who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. If they trained in San Antonio, there's a good chance I know them. I know that you miss your family. That is always the hardest part. Bring them to the next reunion. Dude, what happened to the hair? Good luck to you, Wheels!Scott Coleman
Red Dog,I've been following your posts and have really enjoyed checking in every few days. Sitting here in my air conditioned office in Dallas, it is hard to imagine what life is like for our soldiers in Iraq. Thanks for sharing your experiences. You are doing important work and you should be proud. You've come a long way from the sand volleyball courts of Rollingwood Pool. -Bill
Dr. Brown: This is just sooooo kewl! Stay safe!!Did you get the little box of NTTC surgical caps we mailed you?Started a new class this week...
