Working in the cloud,
as it were, is a bit odd, and not at all the same as seeing your words on
paper. The blog is posted, and there it is. I thought at first I’d print them
out to just see the words in print, but it was unfulfilling. It really is a new
and unique method of dispersing words. I do like the interactive ways that I
can share stuff with you all. My favorite to this point is the ability to ask
questions, and get responses. I hope you all take advantage of this opportunity
to share your thoughts with me, and with other readers.
So, again, I’d like to pose
a question to the readers of this blog: What is the number of the most questions
you’ve been asked following your statement that an exam is normal? You know the conversation. “Did you look at
Mr. Smith’s chest
x-ray?” “Yes, it was normal.” “Okay, thanks.”
Question one: “He didn’t have a pleural effusion?”
Question two: “So, you didn’t think he was in failure?” And
on, and on.
So, I’d like to hear from
you all. Count the questions. And, if you can, remember the questions and share
them with the rest of us.
