In Irvine, KY where my dad works at Marcum and Davis Memorial Hospital emergency room, he has become somewhat of a local celebrity. This is because his picture is on a billboard as you drive out of town toward Richmond. I went to work with him over break and it was so sweet how some of the patients look at him with such adoring, trusting, thankful eyes. He's doing good work there.

I was struck with how many people were dehydrated because the population in eastern Kentucky drinks diuretic beverages like soft drinks and coffee before they would drink some good old fashioned water. As my dad put it cleverly, "Who made Ale-8? And who made water? Catch my drift?"
