Don't chase him away

Ease up on sonic you guys or he'll be gone as quickly as Hepsearcher.  Geesh, since he's revealed his profession there's been a steady stream of questions - mostly general ones I might add that can be answered by virtually everyone's docter.  He'll be gone in the blink of an eye if we abuse him.

Agree - we all have doctors to ask questions of.

We already lost one incredibly valuable resource...let's try to protect this one.

I didn't think about that when I posted the question, but you are correct in what you say.

My problem is that I see a well known doctor and rarely get to see him directly.  I usually only get to see assistants; so it is rare to get  the chance to ask someone this knowledgeable about the new drugs.

youre right, we don't want "resident burnout" :) I just want to know an expert's opinion of the new drugs whenever I can, cause it's such a confusing subject, but I'll back off...wise observation....

Awe, I didn't realize we had lost hep-researcher.... I mean I noticed I definitely hadn't seen him around... but just assumed he was busy, or was here on the days I wasn't... Bummer!

Yea, I like Sonic... It's been a joy reading his knowledgeable post...

I was really IMPRESSED with the tone of some normally touchy subjects yesterday...a definite asset to the board indeed!

Certainly wouldn't want burden him by making him feel like answering post has become a second full time job...LoL.. He's to valuable!
Hope he'll stick around!

said he would come back once he has some downtime like he did in the past here...he just hasn't had any lately, I talk to him from time to time, wasting his time, picking his rather fat brain...and a lot of what he says does go over my head, but I try....like I think Mremeet said, wouldn't it be interesting for them both to discuss these topics....though I'm not tring to set up any WMD Matchfights, ha ha ha! Naaa, they are both tooooo civilized, not that there isn't anyone UNCIVILIZED here of all places:))

Tator: it's always good to see you here, you usually bring smiles with you!

Haa, Haa... You're Sweet...
I dunno... my post on the other side might not bring many smiles.... but at least I was honest!

Oh well.. now everyone can talk ugly about me all weekend... cause I'm not going to be here! Ha!

I'm actually driving down to Oregon tomorrow to meet up with a lady I originally met on on this Forum in 2003... Where going to go Eat Barbeque... LoL, I'm soo excited! I can't wait!

Glad To Hear Researcher isn't Gone... I thought he had taken brakes before & figured he'd be back when he had time... Wasn't it you & Kalio that actually Met him..?? Somebody here did, & had wonderful things to say about him!

Anyway, ya'll have a great weekend.. & go easy on me while I'm gone...Have to take some things I say with a grain of salt & realize no harm intended!

Take Care!

Hey, this is the weekend for the big meeting,t huh?  Well, have a great plate of BBQ and a good time with J.

I think it is so cool that you two are getting together.

bean

ps - I agree with motheroffour.  Just because Sonic is a real live doc doesn't mean he needs to be called up for every teeny tiny question.

Now, Tator, must go to the other side to see what troubel you are brewing.

214582_tn?1194030439
Naa, nothing brewed.. "Thank Goodness"....it wasn't bad, those things can just be a bit touchy is all...

Yup tomorrow is the big day, Whew Hoo!!!

Hopefully Ina will be the one I have the pleasure of meeting next... I owe her dinner...LoL ...

I figure we'll squeeze her in on the way to Big Sky this Fall or Winter cause we'll pass right thru there... we were going to do it last winter, but things got put on hold with getting my grandson & all...

It'll be interesting to see where we get transfered to next & whom we'll be near... LoL... who knows.. I may pass thru a town near you on a cross country trip... Ha!

I have to be honest though.. It's a little intimidating meeting someone face to face for the first time with these weight issues...Ugg... but I can't let that prevent me from doing it either, cause I might not get the opportunity again!

AH I'm so jealous I still haven't gotten to meet anybody in the "real" world!

I wish that I was more in the middle of the country so I could though!  I know that Merlino is near me pretty close too and hope when she's post I could meet her.

Of course I'd LOVE to go flying out to where Kalio lives........it sounds so GORGEOUS out there and what a hoot it would be!

Dang guys I need the lotto - I want to throw a big shin dig for us so we can ALL meet and see what each other look like.

I wish we had a page we could post our pictures on so we could all put a face to a name.  Now THAT would be fun (we could post Pre-TX pictures and then End-Tx pictures wouldn't that be a blast to be able to make fun of ourselves that way!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

was just saying on another post that I had taken a break from here, but in order to get back on I had to re-register...this time, they wanted a profile...I thought, hmmmm, that'll make it harder on the people who come on with different names, but not real hard! ha ha! Anyway, they asked that I upload a picture, now or later...I said later...so I'm wondering if they are fixin to do a picture gallery here, or smoosh it next to our names up there...I figure if you don't want to put your picture, at least one of you pet or something? I just wonder where this pic gallery is? :) I really don't guess what people look like most of the time, but I do guess their hair color for some reason....

Hi Nygirl; if I am not persona non grata due to some of my off the wall posts, my wife and I would love to take you sailing and meet you.  that is if you don't mind spending some time with a TX crazed person that is very anemic!

Our boat is in Westport Connecticut near the train station and 95 so it is easy to get there from anywhere in NY by car or train. the weather has been good for sailing and the water is getting warm now.

NY... LoL... You ought to go sailing!!!! Whew Hoo!!

My meeting was fabulous.... my grandson was horrible to travel with, but the meeting itself made everything worth while... at least he SLEPT all the way home & it was later than we had intended!

I've personally met 2 folks & some of their families from these boards now, (last Oct was the first time I met up with anyone)... & I have to say I have not been disappointed, or nervous in the least!

I have talked with these people & exchanged pictures for so many years, that it was like extended family, & picking up where we last left off... (which is usually like the day before on the net)...LoL

It's pretty awesome to actually recognize the person & already have much in common, & shared so many prior conversations!

Now If I could have just picked out a better restaurant over the net...& my grandson would have behaved... it would have been perfect...LoL.. but still no regrets... & the food was good... it was just more cafeteria style vs being waited on... & we wound up putting my grandson in a booster seat vs a high chair (which he has NEVER sat in one before)... so he was grabbing everything with in reach Thus making eating an actual juggling act.. & he wouldn't eat... & then he started LOUNGING back in his seat & trying to stick his feet & toes on the table...LoL

She brought him some presents... but he only played with the car at the table, but today he thinks it's CHRISTMAS...LoL

It's funny, he actually was all & all a pretty good boy in the resterant (& that was the one thing I was ever originally worried about)... Turns out it was the drive down there that was so aweful... he cried the whole way (didn't like be confined to his car seat).. he wouldn't go to sleep & we had to make 2 unplanned stops to walk him around & calm him down... making the 2 hour trip a little over 3 hours, & we were FRAZZLED by the time we arrived!

Ugg.. But was it worth it..?? Heck YES... Even my better half said meeting them was so enjoyable, that it made everthing worth while..& we all had a such Great Time, .. you'd of never known we were all actually meeting for the first time...& THANKFULLY..not 10 minutes after we left He was ZONKED to the world giving us peaceful closure for the evening... Whew!

(I was actually Praying That He would)..LoL
