Pre-pregnancy Thoughts

It’s always a joy to meet a newly pregnant mother (and of course her family) and to embark on the greatest of journeys as her doctor.

What I want to focus on is the pre-pregnancy time frame, during which many topics are important, but I’ll focus on a few that seem to come up frequently. Read more about Pre-pregnancy Thoughts

Is this who we are?

The recent events in Charlottesville were troubling and frightening. The images of adults carrying Nazi and KKK symbols, with weapons, openly in our country, brought back many terrifying memories to those of us that grew up in the fifties and sixties. Segregation in the south was a reality during those years.  Civil rights activists were beaten, arrested, and killed. To take a stand against segregation and for equal rights took enormous courage. A friend of my family was one of the civil rights activists who was killed during that era. Read more about Is this who we are?

Grandparent playing with grandchildren.

Last week, my daughter arrived in Seattle with her husband and her 6-month-old daughter in tow! She is spending two weeks with us, camped out in our bedroom with a “pack and play” crib.

We are putty in her hands. Read more about The Modern Art of Grandparenting

I decided to investigate this thought a little more—after all, I had nothing I had to do at that moment. Read more about Can good become better?

Is your marriage on empty?

Not long ago, a colleague, Bill, shared with me his sense of loneliness in his marriage. He and his wife, Sarah, have been married for many years, raised a family, and enjoy spending time with their two grandchildren. Bill worked long hours on his career. It was important for him to provide for his family and save money for his kid’s college education. Through hard work, he accomplished those goals.  Now, on the doorstep of retirement and looking ahead, he’s worried about the state of his union. Read more about Is your marriage on empty?
