When I was in practice, after seeing a patient in the hospital I would occasionally write a so-called holding note in the patient's chart. This was a synopsis that indicated I'd return later to complete the evaluation and write a proper admission note.
It was common practice to write a holding note if other patients' urgent needs pulled me away.
After great preparations, I brought my 86-y-o mother to live by me in Dallas. Since her arrival I've had little time or Internet access. Once things settle down I'll finish the ongoing series about the FDA's recent revocation of approval for Avastin.
As a Healthy Survivor, I know -- and try to respect -- my limits. I can't wait to get back to exploring ideas with you on this blog on Healthy Survivorship. Thanks for your patience. With hope, Wendy
