The latest Grand Rounds is made in ChronicBabe style, which means a collection of nice posts. A gathering of doctors, nurses, patients and just regular folk who like to write about medicine. And women. That’s why it’s ladylike, enjoy…
Welcome to Grand Rounds, a weekly round-up of the best of the medical blogosphere. We here at Pallimed (Drew, Lyle, Amy, Amber and myself) are honored to be hosting Grand Rounds for the 3rd time…..The theme this week is “The Art of Medicine and Nursing” in honor of our sister blog Pallimed: Arts and Humanities.

Oakland A’s pitcher Justin Duchsherer announced that he will sit out the rest of the season in order to focus on getting treatment for depression. It is not clear if Duchsherer has dealt with clinical depression in the past but the fact that the former all-star has missed a large portion of the last 3 seasons due to injury probably hasn’t helped matters at all. The risk for mood change in an athlete after an injury can be significant.
Sometimes things come crashing down emotionally. I didn’t realize what an emotional toll being so ill in the hospital with a double kidney infection had until yesterday. I didn’t let myself feel it in the midst of the crisis. I guess I was in survival mode. Literally.
Scattered among excellent posts are flashbacks to the old school world of 2004 in which Grand Rounds was first conceived.

This week the Grand Rounds Carnival takes a “look” (ironic choice of words) at invisible illness issues as well as the best of the medical bloggers who update us on everything from new medical gadgets to their personal experiences.
