Iowa Specialty Hospital

Notes from Steve

January 22, 2024

Today is cold.  I spent the weekend in Des Moines – my nephew’s bachelor party was supposed to be in Kansas City this past weekend, but the blizzard screwed that all up.  Instead, we grilled steaks (in a blizzard) and had a great dinner party with friends from around Des Moines.  It was a lot of fun.  Turning lemons into lemonade. 

My word for today is, “What the heck?”.  Too cool for school and too cold for much of anything.  It’s no secret that I am not a fan of winter.  However, the days are getting longer, and January is halfway over, so there’s that. And … um … the sun is shining.  Nothing else. 

I want to thank you all for toughing it through this horrid weather:  from Rob Cayler – rescuing a provider out in the storm to our volunteers braving the cold lobbies to greet our patients/families to all of you who planned ahead and stayed overnight … and everyone else who showed amazing determination and dedication to brave the weather and snow to come to work. 

This is a tough business, and it takes really special people to keep it going.  You all are the bomb!
