Dr. Buchhalter's Going Away Party

In the EEG Department at Phoenix Children's Hospital, two other people have announced their departure after I did... Dr. Buchhalter (our Chief Epileptologist) and Esperanza Wagner (our epilepsy monitoring unit Technologist).  Dr. Buchhalter will be greatly missed.  He came from Mayo, in Rochester, to build up the PCH neurodiagnostic department and he really made it what it is today.  He did an amazing job with our epilepsy unit and helped build what is now a cutting edge neuro department. Dr. Buchhalter wore a bow tie to work every day and we sure will miss seeing his bow ties.

This was a super fun party and it made me think about how lucky I am to have such great people to work with... What a fun bunch.

I didn't know Esperanza was leaving too.

What great pictures

I'm sure a party like that makes leaving a touch bittersweet...
