Little joys...

I was sooooooooooo happy  to find this notethat my receptionist took down for me yesterday while I was seeing patients- A patient had called to specifically leave me a message, and for once, it wasn't a clarification question about medication or dosage. I was so touched when I read the message I took a photo of it (patient info cut off for patient confidentiality ):

FYI: "tx" = treatment

And...I received my firstgiftfrom a patient in Hong Kong! Of course, we doctors don't expect to receive anything from patients after treating them. We are honoured to be part of the healing process. Nevertheless, in Toronto, some patients would express their gratitude by giving gifts- plants, roses, articles of clothing, fancy jars of green tea...  

On Monday, I received a hand-printed scarffrom one of my patients who had gone to India for the holidays. She told me it was "so cheap", but to me, it's the thought that counts! It's nice to feel appreciatedonce in a while, don't you agree?  

Oh, and on the weekend, we took Bella out on her first car ride. She absolutely LOVED it!

Yes, I agree it's nice to receive tokens (even words) of appreciation once in a while. Did you let Bella hang out of the window the way dogs like to? The way they "tiptoe" is so cute. I've noticed some dogs try to get out as far as they can.
