all that doctorin’

I practiced medicine for 40 years. I don’t know if I ever got it right. Upon retirement I happily shed the responsibilities of medical practice and haven’t looked back. My recent dive into my storage room looking for pictures for my 50th plus one high school reunion has found some additionals. In the early 80s, when I was still a young buck on faculty, my dear Aunt Dorie brought me a friend of hers with some kind of problem she thought I could sort out. She brought her camera and took pictures! So here’s a bit of what she saw, clearly persuasive, but I think I was much better once I went gray. The t-shirt I’m wearing was made up by a grateful patient. I saved him my usual grammar nazi chops.

primum non nocere

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.
