After listening to news radio on the daily commute, the world can seem like a pretty depressing place. I only have to think for a moment, however, to remember how much I have to be thankful for. Below is my partial list. Many I know have had a tough year, but I hope all of you have something to be thankful for as well.
I am thankful for my wife who manages both home and office allows me to practice surgery without guilt.
I am thankful for children so that my errors may be their wisdom.
I am thankful for my parents who gave me every opportunity.
I am thankful for my patients who have given me their confidence and understanding.
I am thankful for my fellow Boise Plastic Surgeons who are collegial professionals.
I am thankful for my referring physicians who have trusted me to care for their patients.
I am thankful for the best office staff that I have ever had.
I am thankful for hospital administration and staff who have facilitated my practice.
I am thankful to practice in a field where patients actually want to go to the doctor.
I am thankful that I get to do arts and crafts everyday and call it work.
I am thankful for my patients’ reminder that we cannot take our health for granted and should appreciate every day.
Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.
