Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Researching a highly skilled, board-certified microsurgeon is the first and most important step in your DIEP flap breast reconstruction process. But what additional criteria might you look for?  Terri shares some practical tips in her latest post.

Catherine takes up Nancy’s Summer Blogging Challenge this week – I love learning more about my online friends through this challenge.

If you are in a time of transition in your life, for whatever reason, Connie‘s latest post will resonate with you.

Amy shares a guest post by Shannon Pulaski on the decision to seek genetic counseling. See also Susan Rosen on BRCA Testing.

Karin has several new posts on her blog this week – it’s hard to pick just one, but her living in peace post spoke most loudly to me.

My heart goes out to Becky as she struggles to find her way back from grief. If you have any words of comfort or wisdom to share with her, please do.

Carolyn writes on my favorite topic – stories in medicine – this week.

I was struck by a very pertinent observation from Elizabeth on her blog this week:

The Information Age puts us in the position of finding the sweet spot between too much and too little.

Finally this week, I’m delighted to see Julia took up my “super-power” writing prompt from last week – and what a great super-power she’s chosen. Here’s your prompt for this coming week.


Until next week,

Yours with much love always
