A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Farewell to Dr. Gabriel Hauser

How do you say goodbye to one of the best doctors that treated your child in the PICU at Georgetown Universry Hospital? And that we served together on the first PAB (Pediatric Parent Advisory Board) for 10years? My best guess would be, "see you later", and, of course, "best wishes" at your new gig at St. Christopher's in Philadelphia? That was all said by many but he is so much more than all the accolades bestowed on him tonight at his farewell party. His commitment, loyalty, expertise and "super star" clinician sets him a part from his peers, but his great passion to help and heal the thousands of kids who passed through those C52 doors (including my son Ryan) truly make him an outstanding human being!  

Our family was honored to be a part of Dr. Hauser's evening, and unbeknownst to us, we solely represented all the patients and families he treated for the past 25 years as chief. He truly set a high bar for his staff, but everyone rose to meet it day in and day out to make the 
best possible outcome for all his patients. This is really remarkable for sure.  

So, Dr. Hauser, "so long", and "best wishes" on your new journey at St Chris. You WILL be missed in DC by many!
