Here in the US, today is Labor Day. I’ve got plans to spend the day at a waterpark with the family. I can’t wait since I’ve grown addicted to the water park this summer. As I think about why, I realize that a waterpark is a great mix of thrills and relaxation. You can go catch a waterslide and have some fun and get your heart going or you can go hang out in the lazy river or wave pool shallow area. It describes me really well. I love thrill and excitement, but I also love to just chill and hang out in my own thoughts or with good friends.

That’s my fun plans for today. What’s yours?

Also, I can never celebrate a holiday these days without thinking about all the amazing people in medicine who are working today. My hospital friend recently texted me “The hospital is always open. It’s one of the great and terrible things about working in a hospital.” She’s right. My thanks goes out to all those people who make a sacrifice on these holidays. Your labors are certainly appreciated my millions.
