Hope you liked the April Fool's Posts

Hopefully many of you realized the 5 posts on April 1 were of the joking variety.

QuickMed Inc. Launches New Palliative Service: Scoops of Compassion
Reluctant Oncologist Finally Embraces Alternative Medicine
Three additional specialty boards are long shot to co-sponsor Hospice and Palliative Medicine
BREAKING NEWS: Specialty now known as Hospice, Palliative Care and Puppies
New Demonstration Project Proposed for CMS by Fringe Medical Group

Thanks to Drew, Suzana, Brian, Lyle, Holly for their contributions (in no particular order).  And a big thanks to Abe R Feaulx for his crack reporting.  We may ask him back next year.

Interestingly, I had some comment son Facebook about a dermatology doctor who is doing his palliative care fellowship, the effective use of pet therapy and more.  So maybe there is some truth in the humor.  Out of curiosity: Did any post get you going for longer than the others?  What was your realization point?

Brad Stuart at GeriPal also had fun with April 1 and they actually got someone else fired up enough to write a post on another blog to rebut the April Fool's post.

And apologies for the double mailing.  That was not part of the joke, but a technical error on my part.
