When I started this blog back in October, I didn't really think anyone would care enough to read it. It seems I was wrong - somehow this blog has developed a fairly steady readership. I'm not sure where all of the readers come from, and I suppose in the end it doesn't really matter. Because as of today, "Stories from the trauma bay" has 500,000 pageviews.
If someone had told me back in October that in only 9 months I would have half a million pageviews, I would have had a good laugh. But here we stand today at 500,286.
So to all my readers - a very gracious and heartfelt thanks. And to all the people who have taken a few minutes of your valuable time to write me an email - questions, comments, stories, thank-yous, fanmail - I sincerely appreciate every single one. Please keep the feedback coming, and please feel free to share the blog with your family, friends, and coworkers. I hope we can reach 1,000,000 soon!
