First, feed the residents

Our Chief of Medicine, Mark Zeidel, and his wife, Dr. Susan Freedman, have a tradition of holding Christmas morning breakfast with the residents on duty at the hospital.

On the east side of the campus, the spread consisted of bialies, bagels, and smoked salmon from Kupel's Bakery in Brookline. Shamshad Zahoor, from Environmental Services, jumped in unasked to help clean up the table. Mark then made the rounds telling people on each floor that breakfast awaited. Not surprisingly, they responded.

Meanwhile, on the west side, a crew had begun to make pancakes for their colleagues. Residents Kelly Bodio and Stephanie Mueller called in reinforcements, Stephanie's husband Matt Ledoux, to keep up with the demand. Violet, dressed for the season, patiently awaited her portion.

What a nice touch! Just what the doctor ordered. . . . a little love and kindness served up with some yummy food.

Amazing what a little video adds: I WANT PANCAKES!

Gonna go do something about that.

Great to hear Mark's laugh, too.

Glad you got that Flipcam!
