All Good Things Must Come to an End

Well, as they say, “All good things must come to an end.” In an effort to simplify life, and based also upon a still, quiet sense of leading from the Holy Spirit, I’m ending my time as a medical journalist. I’ll be taking a sabbatical from doing radio and TV interviews on health-related topics and ending my long-running “Medical News You Can Use” blog, which has run twice-a-day since 2008. During that time I’ve posted just over 4,000 blogs. The blogs will still remain at the web site.

I’m deeply thankful to so many of you who have supported this work with your encouragement, comments, and prayers. I think we accomplished something special together. But, for now, it is with gratitude that I close this chapter and move on.

    Walt,
    I am sure you prayed and listened well before you made this choice. I can imagine that it was not an easy choice given your nature to support and love others and given your constant pursuit of excellence.
    The Lord is your shepherd; you will not want; you are now led to another chapter; perfect love will cast out any fear. I honor the Divine in you.

    You have been in my past, through all your generous posts and I’m sure in your future endeavors a GOOD THING! Praying God’s hand remains on you as you turn this corner. I appreciate so much all you and Barb have given to so many people for such a long time. My gratitude and love to you both! ❤️

    You rock, and I pray the Lord will bless, encourage and refresh you in the days to come. Thank you for all the many ways you serve Him and minister to us. Best doctor ever. Blessings to you and Barb.

    Walt – and Barb – I know how much prayer and thought must have gone into the making of this difficult (or maybe not) decision. With God at the helm, you will succeed no matter the situation. You have helped thousands I am sure and will continue to do so , just in a different venue. I remember Daddy agonizing over whether to close his BR practice and go back to Baylor for a second residency in PM&R (at the ripe old age of 58) and how he was constantly in prayer. Then again when it came time to decide whether to come back to BR or go to his beloved Colo. mountains… guess what his final decision was – not only to come back to BR, but because he’d decided he didn’t “feel led” to shovel snow in his retirement years. I’m sure you and Barb can appreciate his decision – we are with you and can’t wait to see what’s next! Please keep us posted. Lovingly, Carol Lee, Brooke and Kathryn McCutchen

    I came to know of you, seems like a lifetime ago through FOTF. Then when you and your wife started patronizing my shipping store, I felt so privileged and blessed.
    May God continue to bless and keep you and give you peace in all you do.
    Don

    Thanks, Susie. Hope to see you again someday. And, BTW, it’s the Lord who both rocks and is THE rock, eh!?!?
