"Gifts from patients..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday) ---Judy-Judy-Judy---

 field of medicine for over 30 years


Gifts from patients

Having  worked in the medical field for the last 35 years I have had many memorable experiences.  I was reflecting on some of the gifts the patients have given me over the years.  Today I got my first giant cucumber from a patients garden, can't wait to try it with dinner.

Many patients have hobbies...during the holidays they make knitted decorative items, needlework pins to wear, coasters for drinks,  many make home made baked goods.  

It's their way of taking the time to give us an extra thank you; many have serious health issues that bring them to the doctors offices often and we become an extension of their families,  we see them so much.

Some items I save, others I pass on...it's hard to keep everything but of course the food disappears the quickest.  Then there are a group of patients that bring coffee and treats when they come in; we love that.

Many times sales reps bring candy and food which is most appreciated.



Tonight I am making a salad with those great looking 
cucumbers.

Bon Appétit! 

Judy, Judy, Judy!  ;-)

When I had my portrait studio in Homer Alaska, my clients would bring me KING CRAB, HALIBUT AND SALMON.... Why DID I move?
