It has been a year since I began this blog. I am amazed to find that I have the same anniversary as T (Notes of an Anesthesioboist). I was sure she had been around for several years. She seems so polished. So congratulations to her and also to Dr Rich, Covert Rationing, whose blog turned 1 yr yesterday! (photo credit)
It has been a good year. I was nominated for the "Best New Medical Blog 2007" which was won by Dr Val (deservedly so). I have hosted SurgeXperiences twice (here and here). I was given the honor of hosting Grand Rounds (here). I won a Scrubby Award for this post, but still haven't received the red scrubs (they must be in the mail). I did get this T-shirt for my birthday last year after seeing it on Emergiblog's post.
I have made many new friends through this blog. My husband and I took Dr Val to dinner when she came to Little Rock, AR back in October. I was invited by a quilting friend, Kate, who lives in England (the country not the town in Arkansas) to participate in a quilt swap. I am almost done with my little quilt. I have grieved with Dr Smak over Henry, but am gladden by his response to chemotherapy. I have traded e-mails regarding our dogs with another quilter Penny and grieved with her when one of hers died as I did when I lost Girlfriend in September.
I would like to meet more of you in person, but until then thanks for the chats in Dr Anonymous' BlogTalkRadio chat room and the connects on Facebook, Pownce, and Twitter. Thank you all for welcoming me into your fold. It's been a very good year! I'm looking forward to another good one.
