Rock the vote

I know, I know, I know. I actually said I would not blog today. HA! Who am I kidding? I'm Dr. A and I'm a blogaholic.... (it's amazing what sleep does)

This is a history making post! Why? Because I'm asking you, the Doctor Anonymous reader, to vote on which post I will submit for next week's Grand Rounds. In the entire history of Grand Rounds, this is unprecedented (maybe not, but sounds good, huh?).

The only ones that you cannot vote for are this one and this one, because they have already been posted on GR. Any other post is fair game!

According to the blog meters, this is my best week ever! Thanks to all of you out there in blogland. I thought that this would be the perfect day to try this. Will it work? Stay tuned to find out.

After I post this, I'm going to take some "me" time today. Thanks for your advice on this. I'm golfing and I won't be back to my trusty little Mac until tonight. Don't worry, I won't go into withdrawl, I'm wearing the blog patch. *grin*

So, I'll leave the door unlocked. My blog is your blog! Feel free to come and go as you please. I am running low on Diet Coke, so if someone is going to the store, pick up some for me and I'll pay you back.

For all I know, you could have a BA meeting over here today, and I wouldn't even know. My neighbors are used to the noisy parties at my place (if you invite them, that smooths things over).

I'm off to my early morning tee time and I'll be back tonight (don't wait up). I'll close voting sometime on Saturday (or even Sunday) and I'll post the results here. Vote early and vote often. Tell your friends, they can vote, too. Have a great day at my place!

Update 7/21: Had a great day yesterday, but I got back late. I will start going through my comments today. Thanks so much for your votes and feedback. If you haven't voted yet, please do! Keep that feedback rolling in....

my vote is for the 88yr old woman who only had one surgery in her life and they wanted to do a MRA? [i am on my way out the door to my microbiology life and cant search for it - can you say blog addict?] she asked "what would you tell me if i was your grandma?"

anyways. thats my vote!

I'm voting for Why with a link added to Why Revisited. You hit a nerve for everyone in those posts . . .

Lea said...

Hmmm, they are all so good but I'm with Ripple of Hope on the "Why" and "Why Revisited".

FORE! Hope you had a great golfing day.

I vote for "why." It’s edgy, raw, and honest. Love it.

Gee that a toughie.

You've got some really good ones. I guess I have to add my note to the growing swell of support for "Why" ...

... or maybe even "Against Medical Advice" ... or "Swinger's Nuring Home" ... or ... well, you get the idea ...

Have fun golfing!

(Is golfing to doctor as donut is to policeman? ;o)

Dawn said...

I agree with ripple of hope (I love dp's new name!!) about why and why revisited. I felt that way many times when I did on call.

Cathy said...

Hi. Dr. A., I hope you have been enjoying your day of relaxation.

I agree with everyone here. "Why" and "Why Revisited."

Why? I like the rawness and honesty.
