Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds 3.33 is now up and running at The Blog That Ate Manhattan. Because of my busy schedule last week, I wasn't able to write anything, and subsequently not able to contribute anything to the festivities this week.

I wouldn't say that there's a GR theme this week, like has happened in other weeks. TBTAM dedicated this week's Grand Rounds to a fallen blogger....
This week's grand rounds is dedicated to our favorite surgery registrar, Barbados Butterfly, whose blog was unceremoniously taken down not too long ago. I will not write here of the circumstances of her leaving the blogosphere, or posit the details thereof. I wish only to celebrate her as the quintessential medical blogger that she was.

Barb's blog was everything a medical blog is supposed to be - well-written, thoughtful, honest, educational, entertaining, heartwarming, humorous, heart wrenching and above all, real. I only hope that I occasionally achieve what Barb did with every post of her blog. She was (and is) the best. Barb, this one's for you.
If you don't know what Grand Rounds is, it is a weekly compilation of the best posts from the medical blogosphere that moves to different sites each week. And, who doesn't like reading about medicine and science?

The location of next week's Grand Rounds has not yet been revealed yet by the Grand Poobah of GR - Nick Genes. In the mean time, check out The Blog That Ate Manhattan - It's Grand Rounds!
