Blog Start up

After receiving some endearing notes from many of the authors of Heart of a Lion, Hands of a Woman:What Women Neurosurgeons Do, I was inspired to start a blog to allow all of the authors to hear what other authors were saying. I was also touched by a piece int he book that stated that there were no neurosurgeryMom websites to go to...so now there is. This site is for all women neurosurgeons-past, present, and future-all around the world.
I have visions that this site may allow parents of women neurosurgeons to comment on how they feel about their amazing daughters or how spouses, significant others, friends, siblings, or offspring view the pioneering women that we all are.
I would like to share just one touching story: I was recently at the University of Pittsburgh visiting my youngest (I can hardly call my 6"2", 240 pound son my baby, now can I?) at out first college "Parent's Weekend". My husband and I sat high up at Heinz field with Daniel and his friends watching Division I football on a glorious Saturday. In rapid succession, the Pitt Panthers scored a go ahead touchdown (they won the game) and I received a lovely e-mail from book contributors from both Chile and Iran. What a spectacular confluence of my professional and personal life!
I would love to hear your stories, see your pictures, meet those who have helped make your success possible.
