For all those girls and women wondering if medicine is too hard or listening to people discouraging them. I have this message for you.
As co- chair of Women In Medicine I share my thoughts on this important day.

02/01/2021

🎉
As a Pediatrician and a Mother of small children.. what a gift this book has been during these hard times!

Kids hear us talk .. but half the tome, they don’t understand what is going on.. and then they make stories in their head.
Most of the time, these stories are scary and untrue.
For this reason, we have to talk to them and explain at their level.
Bur this is so hard!!!
Well this book is perfect and its available in english and spanish.
My fellow pediatrician .keir.pediatrics wrote it beautifully!
For this reason we teamed up to give you this book.
1. Like this post and share in stories and tag me in the story
2. Follow and .keir.pediatrics
3. Tag 3 friends that would like this book and say why

Winner will be announced on Friday February 5th. Good luck!

Truly a new dawn for the country.

Even when we grieved, we grew.

After a year of grief and loss and feeling powerless in the face of injustice.

May we imagine new possibilities.

May we open our hearts to each other and recognize what needs to be changed.

As Biden said: each one of the things we lived in the last year, on their own, would have been hard. We had all of them at once and now we see some light.

May we be the light in the darkness.

Today. I can breath.

So grateful for science.

Made a wish for:

✨Hugs with our loved ones
✨Family gatherings
✨Friends outings
✨Travel
✨Embracing my patients
✨Life without fear
✨Stopping the loss of life and health

I am hoping this vaccine is available for every one soon!

♍️First Monday of the new year is a great day to set your intentions for this next 12 months! More than goals I like to set intentions or a mantra.
Last year my affirmation was . Wao, how on point was I with that one??? There was lots of chaos to embrace in 2020 and I am proud of myself for doing so.. I had to go back to it many times in the year.
This year will be the year to . This affirmation already in the 4 days the year that have passed has revealed itself to me in what ways I will need this.
My 4 intentions are
⚡️connection
⚡️Self care
⚡️Gratitude
⚡️Purpose

I will center my goals around those 4 mantras and I feel that everything will be alright.

🌟🌟Fly up and stay grounded🌟🌟

This is how I feel when I’m on my bike. I feel like Im flying but so grounded at the same time.

As parents, as professionals, as citizens, as humans: if this year of 2020 has taught us something ...this is that we need to find our anchor and our wings to have and to hold for the rest of our lives.

🦋My wings: fun with my kids, laughter, good food, books, movies, connecting with friends, connecting with family, a special gift, discovering new passions, dreaming, writing, seeing patients thrive, biking, aerial yoga, dancing, music and hiking.

⚓️My anchor: people that get me, my family, my kids health, consistency, rest, cuddles , home, organizing, telling someone how special they are, making someone feel special, when someone tells me how much I mean to them, crackling fireplace, nature, the ocean, being outdoors, little treats, surprises, hugs, smiles, centering nature walks, deep breathes, yoga.

🏔2020 was SO hard. 🏔
But..
Life is hard.. always some different HARD will apear in our lives..

🔥🔥 What will keep us going?🔥🔥

Have your anchors and your wings. Keep shinning through the clouds.
Be kind to yourself. Always.

We have reached the peak of this mountain.

Lets be careful coming down.

This has been an uphill hike kind of year. Its amazing how we encountered so many bumps on the road and rocky ways and absolutely mind blowing freaking first times and loss. But we made it to the end if 2020, we did it together.
We stand here at the top: in view of the path forward : A LIFE SAVING VACCINE!
As the US and the world still report rising cases and daily devastating loss of life. ( total 333,200 deaths in the US alone)

We still have to look back and hang on to the things that helped us get here and keep doing them!
- United with one another
- Trust in one another
- Believing in science
- Giving our best
- Pulling others through hard times

As Doctors, now that we have access to the vaccine, I know many of us would step aside so that our patients and the most vulnerable could have it first.. any one of the doctors I know would do that in a heartbeat.. but, if this pandemic has taught us anything.. is that as doctors we need to take really good care of ourselves first .. to then be able to take care of others.
I stand up here today.. in awe of all of my collegues
-From the and suffering from burnout and exhaustion and still going to save lifes every day .md
-To the doctors speaking up at work to limit hours that would negatively impact patient care
-To the new mom and ICU doctor taking care of covid patients and continuing to breastfeed
-To the public health doctors reading all about the vaccines and educating the public about the myths and dispelling antivaxxer retoric .risahoshino
-To the doctors that have gotten covid and have had to isolate from their familias
-To the millions of medical community educating about masks and vaccines and also advocating for proper PPE for themselves when caring for patients @
-To the doctors in other countries with less resources working countless unpaid hours with decreasing amount of resources to offer their patients

This christmas will be different, but it will not be the first time...

Many times in my life has christmas been equal to grief.
This year we are collectively grieving for the loss of that connection, celebration and physical connection with loved ones..
We are all grieving this year in some kind of way and somehow.. it feels less lonely to grief.

This quote by inspired me to write this post:

“Its the sorrow of life that makes joy worth feeling.
Its the pain of life that reminds us we all need healing
Its the loss in life that guides us towards giving.
Its the love in life that makes it worth living.”

🌪The first time I felt grief in Christmas.. it was the worse pain Ive ever felt in my life: It was the day my brother died in a tragic accident on christmas eve morning.
The second time I felt grief in christmas was in my intern year when I was ON CALL for 24 hrs on Christmas Eve and my 18 year patient who had battled cancer for the entirety of the first 6 months of my pediatric residency, loss his battle on christmas night...and I had to support his family and friends through that gut wrenching process while I still had fresh wound from mine..
The third time I felt grief in christmas was when my grandma had was very sick and had almost passed in the hospital and then she rested in peace the day after christmas.. that was actually a happy year because she held on and spent that christmas with us and it was such a gift to have her. It made it easier to say good bye to her the next day.
Then.. Ive had small griefs on christmases when Ive had to work or my husband has to work and we cant travel to be with family..

All of that.. has been terrible grief.. but the terrible thing about it was having to feel it alone. Feeling like time stood still while every one else just kept going but for me , life didn’t go on in that moment, I had to just sit with the pain for a while.

Later, Ive found the magic of christmas again through the eyes of my children.. seeing the spark and light in them brings me back to the christmases with my brother and my 49 cousins and my grandma and all my aunts and uncles by the tree, singing carols... cont in comments

We can do hard things!
Our scientists did hard things to get us to this moment!
Health care workers around the globe are burned out, tired and have risked their lives.
We have collectively made hard decisions for our families for all of 2020!
This moment is extremely emotional for me!
I could not sleep last night thinking of the magnitude of this moment.
I am grateful for this precise moment in time.
My christmas wish came early! And my new christmas wish is that this vaccine is distributed to ALL of you as fast as possible!
Will share any effects I have or how I feel in my stories. #
