I feel like this summer is zooming by, and yelling “catch me if you can” from a sunny blur of golden sun. So I’ve been making it a point to stop and enjoy the golden light that doesn’t stay in … Continue reading

One day a few years ago, I agreed to evaluate the orthopedic
problems of patients who were applying for Social Security
disability. On this Tuesday afternoon, I walked into a large
examining room, and in the middle of the room was a 17-year-old
girl sitting in an extra-wide wheel chair. She had a pretty face,
but quickly warned me not to make her get up from her chair. She
said it was hard for her to stand. I introduced myself and asked

Sacramento County Hospital had a pool of patients that were
habitués of the local parks about 40 years ago. Many of them
recognized me when I was seen driving through their area,
especially when my convertible top was down. Many knew me from
their visits to the orthopedic clinic at Sacramento County

Small towns have their rewards, but not always. Let us ask - in
1950 - Marie Ritter, a 31-year-old mother of a blue baby living in
Goldendale, Wash., more than 100 miles away from the nearest
medical school in Portland, Ore.

I walked with Les Holmes for about an hour and a half in the
fall of 1992. Our conversation was somber with just a hint of
optimism. Les had worked in the logging industry and had injured
his low back, a Workman's Compensation injury. He hadn't worked for
more than three years.

Civility determines our happiness; each of us need respect,
consideration and kindness. We easily grant to and receive these
things from our fellow humans when we are civil. Happiness does not
depend on outward things but on the way we perceive them. When
stuck on a freeway in our motorized metal cocoons, we can think
that this is a good opportunity to do some serious, undisturbed
work-related planning. Such a positive reaction to a non-positive
event will yield happy feelings rather than angry ones.

In our search for thrills, roller coaster rides can accommodate
the thrill seekers, though they must be aware of G-forces. These
forces are the ones felt while on a roller coaster and are caused
by the changes in speed of the train and the rider's resistance to
change in motion, according to http://www.coasterglobe.com.

Several years ago, while in active practice, I met the most
worried patient, one who needed more assurance than any patient on
which I've operated. She loved her piano and many appreciated her
talents. She practiced long and hard to whet her skills; in so
doing, she developed pain and some numbness in her right hand. Her
symptoms were severe enough that she could only play for a few
minutes at a time.

Hearing is an integral part of everything we do and is helpful
everywhere we go. It can tell us when something is coming, how well
music sounds, whether something is going wrong, etc. The following

Years ago, our mailman delivered five letters to our address,
one for each of our four children and myself, but none for my wife.
Each letter was from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. After about two
months, we received another. These checks came as a complete
surprise. We challenged each child that we would match the dollar
amount of their two checks if they held onto them for at least five
years. Our youngest, Shauna, still had the value of her checks
after five years so we matched it. The money came from the sale of
land that belonged to our Karuk Indian tribe of California. It is a
peace-loving tribe of less than 4,000 members.
