Winding Down

Jun 17 2011 Published by under Fashion (or not)

My office looks somewhat bare. Oh, I still have stuff on the walls because I keep forgetting my putty knife (don't ask), but the books and papers and trinkets have been mostly wrapped and packed.

This weekend I cover the inpatient service here for the last time in the present locale. Yesterday I completed my final outpatient clinic.

One of my patients brought me a gift that I want to share.

Yup, that girl knows me well. This plaque will find a place of honor in the new home or office.

I spend most of next week on the road, closing on the new homestead and attending the annual American Diabetes Association meeting in San Diego. I return to the "Big O" for the last two days of June and some farewell festivities.

All of these "final moments" are bittersweet. Much as I am pumped to move on to my next adventure, the past 13 years and 5 months have included my children growing up, my career evolution, and a slew of new friends and colleagues.

I will end this post with my primary shoe for the month of July, the FitFlop.

Once I stop the full-time day job, much of my time will be devoted to the upcoming move and American Legion baseball. When footgear becomes necessary, my FitFlops will protect my tootsies. A summer without legs will not know what to do!
