So … how’ve you been?I’ve been doing well, thanks.  It’s been a long time.  Some people have written me (or my blog) off for dead.   I suppose that’s fair.  It has been a while since I’ve written anything here, plus there have been a couple of false starts.It turns out that I have, in fact, […]

One blog good. Two blog better.

March 21st, 2007 · 13 Comments

Clearly I need to be spending more time in the lab. Or at least less time in front of the trusty MacBook Pro. After purusing the contents of my “Stuff for the Blog” folder on my desktop, the sheaf of torn-out journal articles that sits on my desk, and the enormous list of […]

Pediatric Grand Rounds: Volume 1, Issue 24

March 11th, 2007 · 32 Comments

Welcome to Pediatric Grand Rounds, Volume 1, Issue 24!
It seems that many of the pediatricians are swamped with patient care duties. It could be the tail-end of RSV season, the onset of rotavirus season (depending on where you are), or the ongoing norovirus outbreaks. Whatever the case, this week’s call for grand […]

Ahead of the curve (two updates) …

February 28th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Apparently I’m reading the correct journals because the subject of two of my recent posts are covered in the two recent issues of the New England Journal of Medicine:
First, there’s a terrific perspective piece on chikungunya fever from the current issue. It sounds like physicians are going to need to learn how to pronounce […]

Evangelical Oncologist

February 13th, 2007 · 22 Comments

I don’t know if it’s the shorter days of winter, or the busier days in the laboratory, but nearly two weeks have passed since I’ve written anything here and it seems like only a few days. It is certainly not for lack of good material. I keep two folders - one on the […]

Pediatric Grand Rounds 1:21

January 28th, 2007 · 2 Comments

The latest episode of Pediatric Grand Rounds is up at Unintelligent Design.
I appreciate Clark including a couple of my posts, as well as an oblique reference to my previous flakiness in hosting PGR, especially the Shinga/Blog MD debacle of December ‘06. He’s willing to give me another chance for March 11th. Needless-to-say, I’ve […]

A shared loss

January 4th, 2007 · 1 Comment

This weblog has afforded me a number of truly remarkable opportunities, most notably the remarkable personalities that I’ve met. About a year ago, I came across a blog entitled Geezers United: The Persistent Online Presence of Tom Lunt via, I believe, a MetaFilter link. The post that had gotten so much attention had […]
