What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger
As I sat here feeling sorry for myself for all the studying I need to do (and am clearly not doing), I stumbled onto Seattle Mama Doc’s most recent blog, “Stronger – I Missed You” and was jolted back to reality. I wanted to share the video with y’all, because I’m so impressed with not only the meaning behind it, but also with the creative talent and filming that went into it. It was created by a patient of the Seattle Children’s Cancer Unit, Chris Rumble. Bravo!
I really used to despise when people would use this cliche phrase – typically to comfort someone going through a relatively benign event, like a break-up or broken down car. I would think of patient’s I’ve seen with problems that, from my point of view, didn’t kill them, but sure as heck didn’t make them stronger. At this time, I’d like to draw your attention to a group of kiddos proving me wrong.
You can read a little about the video and see how it was made (in the very place Seattle Mama Doc spends her days), by visiting Dr. Swanson’s blog or by clicking through some of the following links:

I’m an Ob/Gyn resident (that means I went to medical school to become a doctor) and now I'm working like a crazy person to learn my trade before I'm on my own in the wild. Once upon a time I birthed a couple of babies of my own, they're friggin' adorable twin toddlers now. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I only started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
