There are few people I respect as much as Dr. Rodriguez. Dr. Hinkle and Dr. Wiger are two. Dr. “Mindy” at Loudoun ICU certainly ranks up there. My father, another. Ryan, of course. All are brilliant men and superb individuals. Genuine, sincere, and compassionate.
Dr. Rodriguez stopped by the house today to check in on Ryan. I just can not tell you how great it was to hear him say “Ryan looks the best I’ve seen him”. It means a lot! It really does.
He spent over an hour examining Ryan, calling other doctors, writing prescriptions, talking to radiologists, and socializing. By the time he left, we had a game plan in place for Ryan’s care.
Equally impressive is Dr. Hinkle. He called me first thing this morning to talk about Ryan’s eyes. We discussed many ways, some conceptual, to remedy his dryness. How can a person not admire a guy who is paying attention?
These are men of passion for the well-being of others. Their notability comes from their reputation. Well deserved, at that. Their authority comes from their knowledge. It is fortunate for their patients that they chose to enter their field.
Really, after a rough couple of days, it’s uplifting to see people who truly care. The doctors. The readers of this blog. The Prayer Warriors. The MOTNCer’s. WVU. Morgantown. Ashburn. Loudoun County. The list goes on…
…thought it might be nice to end the day on a good note!
