We have to see the good in all sad situations 🙏🏻. This past weekend we were in NY for my Grandpa Bob’s funeral. Although we were sad about his death, he battled cancer for 10 years and is suffering no more.
He is buried at the same cemetery my brother is. It was like a double whammy that hit hard all at once.
Even though it wasn’t easy to be there in that situation, I did gain more memories and time with my family 🤗 and I’m grateful for that. 〰️
I gained time with my family I hardly get to see. Pictures with both my parents and my sister that I haven’t had since I was a kid. Pictures with my family and my nieces and nephew and grandma. They are invaluable and I’m so thankful. Time is something we lose everyday. Cherish the moments with those you love as much as you can 💜.

Tetracycline v. Doxycycline They are both antibiotics in the tetracycline class--but they are not the same.
The other day I had a patient for whom I had written doxycycline. I had advised her to take it with food as it causes stomach upset on an empty stomach. When she went to the pharmacy, however, the pharmacist counselled her to NOT take it with food. I encounter this mistake all the time with pharmacists who don't pay attention to details. You see, there is a CLASS of drug (a group of related drugs) called tetracycline--think of it like New York State. There is a specific drug in that class of drugs called tetracycline-- we can think of it as "tetracycline, tetracycline." Teracycline, tetracycline should be taken without food. Another drug in this class, doxycycline (think of it as doxycycline in the state of tetracycline), however, can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea when taken on an empty stomach.
Tetracycline, Tetracycline--so nice they named it twice Not if you are vomiting! When it comes to medications know the devil is in the details or you might find yourself lost--or nauseous--if you are in a New York State of mind but think you are in Manhattan when you are in Albany.

I was in Bryant Park yesterday, and was so struck by it's undeniable French vibe: Bistro chairs, a carousel, (see my Stories for a pic), flower filled urns like the Luxembourg gardens, and wide open lawn space. No wonder it's one of my fav NYC spots. #ilovenyc #bryantpark #prettycitynewyork
Bright lights will inspire you... 🗽🌃🎶 Believe it or not, this was snapped at night (at around 10:30pm!) and it's still so bright! ✨ Times Square really is like nothing I've ever experienced before. Overwhelming and beautiful. Jumpsuit is: @nobodyschild
