Dr. Sid Schwab (Surgeon) Live Interview Tonight!

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. :)

Dr. A said...

Thanks so much for promoting the show and for calling into the show. I really appreciate it. You're welcome anytime to stop by!

SeaSpray said...

Well thank you very much for saying that and you are very welcome.

It was neat being a part of the chat room and seeing the conversations and really special to be able to talk with Dr. Schwab and you.

I am truly in awe that we could all communicate from our homes and speak with each other across the country and around the world. How cool is THAT???

I had a lot of fun and just want to say Thank YOU for making this possible for all of us. :)

Wow, Seaspray...your welcomed so nicely. How great is that?? Sid was fantastic - as expected, and it was so good to hear those of you I have come to care about, call in too. Some I didn't know.

You sounded terrific last night. I thought it was so sweet of you to give me a shout out and say hello. I was typing a hello back. I'm glad you and Passionstamper were both there.

Sid is amazing. It's great to have our Dr. Rob back too! What a great show.

SeaSpray said...

Dr Schwab and Dr A were really sweet and helped me to feel comfortable and even though I was a shy SeaSpray, I had fun talking with them.

Yes Dr S was fantastic and it was nice to hear Rob's voice and that he is back. He's funny!

Thank you for your kind words and i am glad you didn't mind I did that. :)

I am glad passion stamper came on too. I helped her make 40 cards tonight. She's the instructor and I just did what she told me to do. Two different kinds and they were really pretty. :)

Chrysalis Angel said...

No, I didn't mind Seaspray - I thought it was very nice of you. I haven't had the welcoming experiences you have.
