This might be the most inspired thing I read today.

“Baton Rouge surgeon, Catherine Baucom, MD of Elliot Mastology Center, was on her way to surgery at BRASS Surgery Center Wednesday morning when she found herself caught in the traffic caused by the accident that shutdown Interstate 10 early Wednesday morning.”

This news link from WFAB in Baton Rouge ,Louisiana covers the story.

“According to officials at BRASS Surgery Center, Dr. Baucom tried to navigate the gridlock to no avail, so she decided to take matters into her own hands. Dr. Baucom remembered a friend that lived a few blocks from her position in the mayhem and made her way to his house. ”

She commandeered a kids bike and rode that bike (in the Louisiana august heat)  to her job, to serve others.

“It was hot pink and small,” Dr. Baucom said, describing the bike.  “The helmet was pink with princesses.” And ” she did utilize the plastic basket on front, to put her cell phone in.  Showed her experience with a bike.”

That is dedication and professionalism in the face of adversity on parade.

She explains “”A lot of our patients are women and they come in from out of town.  They’re very nervous, for different reasons.  So I felt like I needed to get there for them,”
