Buried in my old blogs is a post where I wax on about my career in Rheumatology https://wordpress.com/post/theviewfromharbal.com/470. Even though I haven’t seen a patient for over 2 years, I still write for and publish in the medical literature about the things that held my passion. Way back in May I submitted my 4,066 words on “Arthroscopy in Rheumatology: Where have we been? Where might we go?” to Rheumatology (Oxford). Yes, that Oxford. My mentor Bill Arnold and good friend and number one ‘scopy buddy Ken Kalunian joined me as co-authors. To our surprise and delight, it was accepted July 31st after a few revisions. On December 1st, I received notice from Oxford University Press that it had at last been published, not between the covers of a journal yet, but electronically accessible. My copyright agreement with Oxford restricts how freely I can share the article, but I am allowed to post it on my website. So here it is. Worth at least a scan and the figures are pretty, I think.

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
