What Really Causes Heart Disease

What Really Causes Heart Disease

We had a professor this past year that went on rants…many, many rants….in a style similar to this… One such rant I remember being about how the problem with our eating habits as a country isn’t due to fat intake- but it is “a result of those sugar cereals replacing bacon and eggs for breakfast”. […]

23 and 1/2 hours

23 and 1/2 hours

In Bounding Into Health I talked about how important it is that we take care of ourselves. So practically, what does that look like? Being in medical school, I like evidence. Good evidence. I also like to prevent disease as much as possible. So when asked what is the number 1 thing that can not […]

The Personhood Act- The Finale (for now)

The Personhood Act- The Finale (for now)

This Personhood Act string of entries kind of came out of nowhere. I appreciate you reading and commenting and, most of all, thinking. Update: The Personhood Act of Oklahoma with all of the amendments is dead in the House and Senate as of today. The initiate to add the question to the ballot regarding the […]

The Personhood Act- The Opinion

The Personhood Act- The Opinion

The Rules 1. Either read ALL of it, or stop now. (This will be long and involved. Consider yourself warned.) 2. If you haven’t read The Personhood Act yet, do that first.  The Background I’ve been avoiding writing about this for a couple of months now. I don’t like getting involved in politics. That’s why […]

The Personhood Act- Just the Facts, Ma’am

The Personhood Act- Just the Facts, Ma’am

If you want to know my qualifications for making any comments about such a topic, see “About Me”. The Personhood Act (Senate Bill 1433) appears to be pretty much “dead in the water” when it comes to the Oklahoma House and Senate, at this moment. So, why all the hubbub, Bub? There is a lot of […]

The Personhood Act- What are Your Thoughts?

The Personhood Act- What are Your Thoughts?

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this lately. I haven’t quite decided whether to tackle it or not…I also have no idea HOW I would quite put it out there either… So first, I’m going to see if it’s even worth writing about (because I would put some time and effort into this…) […]

Singin’ in the Rain

Singin’ in the Rain

Oh, it’s been one of those weeks. Baby girl is doing better, though still not enough to warrant normal life. It’s been difficult to study, and even more difficult to take her to the doctor. I have a very high respect for those parents who have to do that with their children often, for whatever […]

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

1. Even though I’m in medical school, I still panic like any other mom. I think I might panic even more because I know all of the horrible one-in-a-bagillion chance things that can go wrong or that it “could be”. No fun. No fair. 2. School isn’t that important to me. Don’t get me wrong. […]

All Things Easter

All Things Easter

Being in an osteopathic medical school and attending undergrad where I did, I automatically like to think of things as “Spirit, Mind/Soul, Body” or “Spiritual, Emotional/Mental, Physical”. So why not Easter? Easter is pretty much a BIG deal. And it’s all about Life…especially the life that we can have through Jesus. (Warning: Lots of Clicking […]

Baby Steps, Bob!

Baby Steps, Bob!

When change happens TO me- it seems to happen suddenly. Last January there was one business week that went something like this. 1. Michael’s interview at The Church. 2. We found out that we were having an “Abigail”. 3. I had my medical school interview. 4. We closed on our first house. Talk about change. […]
