Introducing Polar Doc

Before I was a wife and mommy, I worked for an ob/gyn. MY ob/gyn, actually. A great guy, a great boss, and a great doctor. In fact, he delivered Daughter shortly before he moved away to Virginia (which worked out well because I wanted to stay home with Beautiful Baby Daughter anyway!). Over the years we have kept in touch, because I not only considered him my doctor and my boss, I considered him my friend. And still do.

He recently received an opportunity to do a 20-week tour of duty as a physician in Antarctica. Yes, ANTARCTICA. The only thing I know about Antarctica is that it's cold there and they have penguins. And apparently a need for a doctor of his caliber. So off he goes! He's leaving soon, and is blogging about the whole experience, so if you have a chance, stop by and visit him at Medical Ice. Leave him a comment and tell him I sent you.

I hope he packed his long underwear.....

Antarctica is on my list of places to visit!

I can't help but wonder, wouldn't that be a little weird to see your ob/gyn every day - as your BOSS no less?!

Sounds great to be able to do something like that but I am a warm weather person.
I will slide on over to his blog and say HI.

I will go check it out! My husband is an ER doctor and I'm sure this will interest him! Take care, Julie
