Thanksgiving is right around the corner and, as a practicing physician, every other year it allows for great time with family, an abundance of food, and time to reflect on all those blessings we are so thankful for. This year, however, I will be on the other end of the spectrum. I will be working clinically and not spending time with my immediate family. Instead, I will be with my work family and enjoying an abundance of food prepared by those wonderful individuals I work with rather than my wife and family. The last tradition of Thanksgiving that I so dearly love is being able to reflect on those blessings that we are all so thankful for.

I like starting off the shift on Thanksgiving huddling up with the entire ED team and allowing each individual to state what they are thankful for. This is a very powerful team building exercise that helps puts our day in perspective. We, as physicians, know that just because it is Thanksgiving, that does not mean poor health, disaster, and major disease doesn’t take a holiday. We still hold the hands of those suffering and those that have suffered a loss. We give hugs and show love to those that don’t have loved ones to share their day. We are caring emergency physicians that love what we do and those that we serve.

Explaining to my children that I have to work Thanksgiving can be hard, however, being with those that need us most makes being in “the pit” more gratifying. I am thankful for the “every other year” tradition that occurs in our home, however, I am even more grateful and thankful for this year, to be able to spend time with my team and the patients we have the privilege to serve.
