Can My Own Book Be My Favorite?

Okay,  so is it okay that my favorite is Little Patient Big Doctor?  I'm a bit partial since I wrote it.  Though to be honest it's taken me a while to make that statement.  I'm not one of those people who think that just because I did it -…

Do You Have a Love of LIfe?

I have a love for life.  I believe that every person is granted time on earth because we have a special gift to share with the world to make it a better place.  And each of us has the ability to reach that potential in this life.   Sharing this basic philosophy, which is at the core of Little Patient Big Doctor is the reason I wrote the…

Myth Buster: The Perfect Balance

Balancing work and home life is what we all strive for: we multi-task, we organize, we cut to the chase, we learn the tricks.  But you know what?  Having that perfect balance is an urban myth. 



 

Let’s think about this for a minute.  Balancing by its nature is risky business.  Tightrope walkers balance, gymnasts balance, window washers balance.  This isn’t for everyone.  Sure most…

Questions To Ask At Every Doctor's Visit

I am a mom with five kids and for better or worse plenty of experience at the doctor's office. I've dealt with everything from ear infections to misdiagnoses of severe hearing loss to multiple allergies. Wanting to connect to and inspire other moms I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey. Now I speak to groups about trusting our gut, advocating for our children and being open to all…

Do You Miss Blogging?

Guys, I don't know about you but I miss blogging.  I really didn't have time to do this over the summer.  Now that school has started and the kids are back in their groove, I can get back to it. Connecting with all of you - even though I have no idea who you are really makes a difference.  I think blogging is about reaching out to other moms and sharing our thoughts and experiences.

Do You Do Your Own Medical Research Or Do You Leave It To Your Doc?

I do my own research and I think it's high time that doctors get used to us doing this. 



Doctors need to adjust to a reality that patients are actively engaging in their own care and should be treated as partners in their care. This means that at times the doctor may disagree with a patient's diagnoses and prognosis. Well as partners do, then the…

Do you feel lucky on Mother's Day?

I love all the contests that are out there on Mother's Day.  Here's the question:  Do you feel luckier and are we actually luckier this day over others?  I think that if we feel we are lucky, we do get luckier.  I know this sounds a bit far fetched but hear me out.  When you don't feel like you have any luck, do you even try?  I don't.  I just don't even bother giving anything a try. But when I feel lucky, I try my luck and you know what?  Sometimes I win.  That's my take.  What's…

What's a Mom's Job?

One son living off formula and on a feeding tube and another son with hearing aids - this could’ve been me.  But it’s not.  Instead, I have a son who’s healthy and thriving and another who hears fine.  Where we lucky?  Did God simply smile done at us?  Yes.  But I also know that my children are lucky to have a mom.

 

Let me share with you what I heard when I walked into a doctor’s office.

 

“But Doctor, isn’t there anything I can do to help Ethan overcome his…

Are You Kidding, Doc?

One son living off formula and on a feeding tube and another son with hearing aids - this could’ve been me.  But it’s not.  Instead, I have a son who’s healthy and thriving and another who hears fine.  Where we lucky?  Did God simply smile done at us?  Yes.  But I also know that my approach to their medical challenges made a world of difference.

 

What’s this approach?  It’s a combination of two things:  attitude and know how.

 

1.    Attitude:

REDUCE STRESS: ATTACK EVERYTHING

That’s right. We can reduce stress by attacking everything. I’ll get to that in a minute. First, here’s how I see it. I love going to the doctor for - you name it headache, backpain, stomach issues, skin issues- with the diagnosis that it’s all due to stress. 

 

What is this catch all our doctors like to use? “Stress.” It seems to describe and explain everything. Usually, we deal with it by treating the symptom. Take a pill for the…

Are You a Lazy Reader?

I Am.  I say short books rule.  I've never understood people who pick up a 700 page book with gusto.  What are they thinking?  That's hours of time with eyes glued on print.   I get it, the story can be amazing and transfer you to an incredible place.  I just don't think that I have the stamina to go there.  Do me a favor and turn that book into 5 different books and I'll bet more people would gladly pick it up. 

 

I've recently discovered…

Don't Let A Doctor Destory Your Baby's Hearing

Do you think that this is a sensational title?  It is posted this morning on CNN.com/Health.  I'm really curious to hear what you think because the story is about our family.  Will this encourage patient advocacy or will it harm doctor/patient relationships?

Thank You: CNN Picked Up the Story

Thank you to each of the mom bloggers out there who I don't know but together create a community of support.  My story and Little Patient Big Doctor is profiled today on CNN.com.  Part of the reason is the positive community of support we give each other.  Seeing each of you succeed gives me strength to believe that my…

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CURE FOR ALLERGIES?

I'm so excited.  My son is allergic to so many things and we've been through the wringer with him but he's doing so well.  So, I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey to share what we did that helped him so that other families can be helped also.  I never imagined that writing the book would lead to radio interviews and interacting with so many wonderful people with such a wealth of knowledge.  Here is a…

Do You Think You Have a Preset Time to Live? And . . . Who's the Nut When it Comes to Allergies?

Ready for this?  I don't think that it is a school's responsibility to be nut free.  I don't think airlines should be mandated to keep peanuts off a plane.  I don't think it should be mandatory for restaurants to provide nut-free options or for that matter, egg free, dairy free, soy free or anything else- to which all my son is allergic.  It's my issue and my responsibility.

 

It's certainly greatly appreciated and an act of goodwill when schools, airlines, restaurants and…

Would you sue a doctor you like, if he made a mistake?

Okay, so I encourage the importance of a partnership between doctors and patients.  I figure if we can talk to our doctors, he'll know better what's going on with us and we'll better understand what he wants from us.  We'll also be able to work together if we have all kinds of other ideas we're thinking of trying that he may not suggest- like using olive oil for that dry scalp instead of a medicated shampoo.

 

But could this closeness hurt the doctor?  Go with me for a second.…

How do you calm a panicked kid?

Okay, this has to be one of the most important skills parents have up their sleeve.  I have a child with asthma.  In my case it's vital.  If a kid panics, things just escalate out of control.  So, any tricks we teach our children to stay calm can be life saving.  You can read all about that in my book Little Patient Big Doctor.

 

Even if you are not dealing with asthma but have a child who is stuck on top of…

Does your doctor practice voodoo medicine?

Sounds like the answer to that is YES according to Newsweek's latest article: Why Almost Everything You Hear About Medicine is Wrong.  It seems that over 50% of all studies that come out ultimately are proven false.  So that means that more than half the time, your doctor has no idea what he is talking about - but here's the kicker- HE THINKS HE DOES- which makes…
