My eye doctor's office texted me to say that it was time for my annual eye exam. And I immediately set up my appointment.
To put this in perspective, my dentist and my regular doctor have also both notified me for an appointment. But I haven't responded to them. (I will, just not right now.)…

When my doctor first diagnosed me with a vitamin D deficiency, he told me to go out into the sunlight more often. That advice sounded great in theory, but it wasn't realistic. I asked him when I was supposed to do that during my day. At my 5 am run, the sun isn't up yet. I work all day - even through my lunch time. I am in a lot of meetings and can't wander too far from my desk phone. When I get home, I make dinner and help get my son…Continue

I had a visit with my doctor in January and at the end of the visit, he told me that I was due to see him for my annual exam in March.
I knew this wasn't true. I recall the last time that I saw him was right after Thanksgiving. I remember us talking about holiday plans. I pointed this out to him, but he was…
By now many of us have begun the…Continue

I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…Continue

It's late at night. You are about to head off to bed, but before you do, you make a quick stop in your child's bedroom. After readjusting the covers (how do they kicked off every night?) and retrieving various animal friends from the floor, you hear it. It may be quiet at first, but then it becomes an easily identifiable sound. Is your child snoring?…Continue

We all know that kids really don't have any kind of a filter when it comes to speaking their minds. The thoughts just tumble out of their mouths like the trash rolls out of my purse when it falls over. They don't mean to hurt your feelings -- they just call it like they see it. For example, when they say I have a…Continue

This week when my daughter fell down the stairs, I had to take her to the doctor... and that was a bit uncomfortable.

Thanks for reading, Megan

Recently, I finally surrendered to pains which have been nagging me for way to long. Much like the plumber with the leaky faucet, we, Doc families seem to be walking case studies of a plethora of ailments, aches, and pains - especially the adults. If something's hurting, I just wait until Doc H comes home, mention it in passing and wait for a response. Usually, I get no response other than a nod (translation: I have no idea. You’ll probably feel better in a day…Continue
