“Doc, after surgery will I be able to play the piano?”
I smiled, having fallen for that joke often as a young surgeon.
Older now, I answer “How good are you at it now? You should be just as good.”
We both laugh.
I am a plastic surgeon in Little Rock, AR. I used to "suture for a living", I continue "to live to sew". These days most of my sewing is piecing quilts. I love the patterns and interplay of the fabric color. I would like to explore writing about medical/surgical topics as well as sewing/quilting topics. I will do my best to make sure both are represented accurately as I share with both colleagues and the general public.
