Hey everyone! Tonight, Dr. Sid Schwab (blogging surgeon and author) who is well known in the medical blogosphere through his popular blog-Surgeonsblog will be interviewed here by Dr. Anonymous on live BlogTalk radio tonight at 9:00 p.m. EST.
I have heard the chat for the show is fun and I think I have signed up in the appropriate place...technically challenged girl that I am. I would love to call in to say hi and I might if I don't suddenly become a shy SeaSpray. ;)
I have been reading Dr Schwab's blog since October of 2006 and as a result have been turned into a surgical groupie. Suffice it to know that between my experiences with my skilled and dedicated urologist, trips to the OR and "Grey"s Anatomy", that I was drawn in like a moth to flame to Surgeonsblog in which Dr Schwab writes ever so eloquently about his experiences in becoming a surgeon and his many years of practice. I have felt like I was in the OR with him, feeling his awe of the sacred responsibility he held in his hands, the tension, the compassion, relief and pride of a job well done and gaining an insight to the world of surgery that had always been a mystery before.
He also helped me tremendously through his writing that helped dispel some fears I had when I thought I was going to have a big surgery last year as well as reassuring me with what safety precautions they use in the OR today. And I really liked hearing one thing in particular where he said something like (Not his words but my interpretation) a patient is never more attended to then when they are in the OR, hooked up to all the machines monitoring everything with all the staff right there.
I have also had some good laughs over at his blog, both with what he has written and the interesting comments. I wholeheartedly recommend Surgeonsblog for a good read. Speaking of read, Dr. Schwab has also written a book (Which I purchased and thoroughly enjoyed) titled "Cutting Remarks" and you can read about it here.
I will be right there listening live tonight...drawn in like a moth to flame. :)
