The election is over and congratulations to President-elect Barack Obama and all the local and State representatives. Everything that happens from now on not only depends on the President’s abilities, but it also depends on our ability to do what we can. I know that one man cannot fix the world, and it would be naive of me to think otherwise, but I am hopeful for the possibilities, especially when it comes to our healthcare. I do believe that until the economy is doing better, the healthcare issue is going to take a back seat for a while.

I suppose that it’s this time of year that can’t help but make me reflective about all the things to be thankful for. But as they say, feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. So, here’s my brief reflection on some of the many incalculable gifts that have been bestowed to help me get on my feet here at the IPPF. Janet, of course, has been an unending well of patient tutoring on the ins and outs of diagnoses, medications, side effects and patient challenges. Will has (repeatedly) explained to me PHP, HTML, Joomla, and made me even more grateful that he deals with all “that”. Thanks, team!
