Obituaries: surgeon, URL

I just heard that Dr. Drummond-Webb, a surgeon at the cardiac program of Arkansas Children's Hospital, committed suicide two years or so ago, at about 45 yars old. He was the surgeon profiled on ABC's 2002 miniseries, ICU: Arkansas Children's. To me, he seemed the face of stress management. He did an extremely stressful job (heart surgeon), did it well, and did it with compassion and a good patient rapport. He also maintained a marriage, and maintained a life outside of work, as a competitive runner and triathlete. If I see any links to the show in question, I will modify this post accordingly.

Also, somewhat alarmingly, Allison's domain expired. Dang! Allisonlives.com is now a search engine.
