Hard to believe that 4 months has gone by so quickly! It has been a very hot summer here in Baltimore...almost too hot to be able to really enjoy the outdoors as I would like. Hopkins has been busy since we have been short-staffed. It never ceases to amaze me how a 900-something bed hospital can stay full all of the time. The folks in my department are a great bunch and everyone really has been pulling together to try and see our never-ending list of patients. Luckily, I have also found time to hang out with my brother and sister-in-law, and of course Emily, who is now 3 months old. I have enjoyed being here in my old stomping grounds and exploring some familar and some new places.
