2009-08-30T12:59:55.880-05:00

I respect your open-mindedness. I've been in many beautiful places where the people were rude and have been to old places where people very nice and caring. It's not a new thought but it's easy to forget and when it happens, it is very humbling. I am learning so much from your ideas! Thanks for blogging

2007-06-25T09:32:00.000-05:00

Yours is a great story and I'm always amazed at your depth of insight you reach in everyday situations.

I'm glad this did not happen to you in Singapore or elsewhere far away.

As someone who cohorts with many doctors (all as good friends), you are perhaps the only case of a doctor being such a good patient. That is rare.

All of us at TI wish you a speedy recovery.

Best,

David

2007-06-24T21:23:00.000-05:00

I think you had enough knowledge to have some control over your treatment. Someone with less knowledge might not have known how seriously they needed to advocate for themselves.

I always tell students they should take human biology in high school as it is the only owners' manual course offered for your body.

2007-06-24T20:35:00.000-05:00

Dear Readers,

I want to thank you for your support and well wishes during this period. It means more to me than you can possibly know.

Brett

2007-06-23T20:20:00.000-05:00

Glad you're doing better! Posts like these do make me reconsider reprioritizing things in my life.

Thanks for sharing and hopefully you won't have any other incidents like this in the future!

2007-06-23T09:46:00.000-05:00

Brett,

I've just browsed your blog and read your story. I'm glad that everything is OK and you are recovering.

Great lessons in the post!

All the best,
Krasimir

2007-06-22T23:08:00.000-05:00

Brett,

I get the impression that you are quite a humble individual, and that perhaps you are not 100% aware of how important your work is to the trading community. I think I speak for all of your readers when I say that we are blessed to have access to your knowledge and intuition, and we are all glad that you are recovering. Thank you for everything that you contribute I hope that I am able return the favor someday.

All the best,
Michael

2007-06-22T20:24:00.000-05:00

Brett:

I am thrilled to hear that the medical team was able to extricate the appendix in time--imagine what might have happened had you not been your own best advocate.

By the way--your adventure: "being the only English-speaking" AMERICAN in the ER is testimony to an unsung problem with this invasion on our sovereign soil: THE MONETARY STRAIN--on an already broken--health-care system.

Sadly, as I recently said on one of my postings:

"Sadly, I believe that historians will be re-writing the last chapter of the Mexican Cession, the historical name of the present day southwestern United States ceded by Mexico in 1848.

What lands Mexico lost in war, they are winning back through their policy of a tacit invasion of the United States. With each passing day—as the number of illegal Mexicans in our country grows (compounded by births on U.S. soil), Mexico takes back a little bit more of their lost land(s) and culture."

Heal quickly!

AND GOD BLESS AN ENGLISH-SPEAKING AMERICA!

Dr. S,

I'm glad you're on the road to recovery-thanks for sharing your experience. It's amazing how quickly one's circumstances can change. Also, thanks for sharing your research efforts-they provide excellent ideas for further research.

Take care,
Eric

Wow, you couldn't have invented a better script had you been trying for exciting fiction. What a great post on your insights. Thanks for the great lessons and examples you set.

What a day - almost like "24"! Glad to hear you are on the mend.

But egg salad......it was made to be a story.

Best wishes,

Thanks for taking the time and energy to share this edifying experience with us.
Hopefully some of us can grow vicariously from it.

2007-06-22T11:12:00.000-05:00

Brett,

We are so happy to hear of your recovery!

We like your analogy and the correlation to stocks and the market. I have compared our "garden" experiences to stocks...guess there are many comparisons to be made in our lives. :)

Be well!

2007-06-22T10:42:00.001-05:00

"If you find yourself in an uncomfortable life situation, consider the possibility that you're meant to be there; that you can only expand yourself when you travel outside your comfort zone."

The artist/singer Björk recently released an album and a line from one of her most recent songs stuck with me:

"A lust for comfort suffocates the soul."

To be sure, you're right about expanding and growing through uncomfortable situations.

Great post and I'm really glad you're okay and back to share the experience.

Cheers.

2007-06-22T10:42:00.000-05:00

Wow! What a tale! I knew as soon as I saw that your blog was on hold that something bad had happened. Only a hospital could keep such an incredibly disciplined person like yourself from posting!

It's easy to forget the poverty of some people when we're not exposed to it every day. But I've found that at the core, most of them are people, just like us, that we can talk to (except for the occasional language barrier) and connect with.

From your tale it sounds like you help people everywhere you go. You are truly a blessing to this world, Brett, and we are glad to have you in it.

Anyway, I've enjoyed your recent series about the scientist's mindset. It's seems to be like the "let's see what happens" attitude we feel when we put on a well-reasoned trade and accept the risk.

Looking forward to hearing more on your trader coaching project; I'm particularly interested in that.

I've been thinking of you and will continue to wish you a safe and speedy recovery.

2007-06-22T07:08:00.000-05:00

Bloody hell, sounds like you had a lucky escape. I live in the UK, my wife is a Physical therapist and her favourite programme is ER (which I sometimes watch). It's sounds as if you could have been in a epsiode of this medical drama.

My non-trading reading tends to be books about War (and prisoner of war stories) as they help to put my life into perspective. No matter how bad a day I've had in the markets, it just does not compare to what soldiers and civilians have experienced during the horror of war.

Wishing you all the best
Get well soon

2007-06-22T06:14:00.000-05:00

Dear Brett

What goes around comes around and you have a guardian angel who guided you to the nearest hospital.

If an acute appendix burst, you would be infected with peritonitis which is almost fatal, if not arrested in time! Thank heavens, you did what you did and save yourself, at least from peritonitis.

Yes, often it is at moments like this which brings revelations to change our outlook in life 360 degrees, to be completely open.

We all come to this world with nothing and we shall all go with nothing, reduced dust to dust.

So we should all live and let live.

Please take it easy, Brett, and don't over exert yourself so soon, much as we love to have your daily posts.

2007-06-22T05:09:00.000-05:00

Doctor,

Enjoy the rest, market is always there. Hope you'll get well very soon.

Yuen.

Hi Dr Brett,
This is truly a life changing experience. Your experience here has reminded us not to take simple pleasures in life for granted. Thanks for sharing this personal experience.

I'm glad your survived this ordeal and is feeling better now. Do rest more and please take care.

2007-06-22T02:23:00.000-05:00

Hi Brett,

That's some story. I'm a true believer that things happen for a reason and that there is a lesson for us to be learned. I'm sure this experience has changed you and will probably take you down a path you might not have considered
before.

I'm glad you are feeling better and I'm sure as soon as you find the strength, you'll be back analyzing the markets for us.

I was thinking of having an egg salad sandwich for lunch, but on second thought maybe I'll have someting else..:-)

Be Well,
Kevin

2007-06-21T23:44:00.000-05:00

Peering into your experience of being with the financial world's upper echelon one minute – to fighting for your life in a Queens’s community hospital the next – is simply amazing.

The lessons I took away from your story are to always stay humble and to always find the positive aspects of any given situation. You have a remarkable gift of being able to glean positive aspects from situations that I’d personally just have missed and/or simply complained about. Sharing what you do has helped to turn my personal radio dial to new and exciting places.

Glad to have you back Brett.
