Blogs we like.

Many years ago I was approached by a pediatric oncologist to write a booklet for her patients. She wanted a booklet for parents caring for terminally ill children—how they get their clocks turned around so that night is day. And even though they are going to die shortly, they still need care for their broken arms, legs and teeth—they still deserve some quality of life. As it turns out she never had time to help me finish the booklet so it was never done. But I have a real admiration for those who can deal with the deaths of children and give them dignity in the process. This blog is by a pediatric oncologist that seems to be able to do just that.
