Good morning Gayle! Talk has it that I only have your show to watch and blog on for a couple more days…and it’s making me feel a little sad…but quickly, it turns to JOY when I realize how much this means for you and the rest of the world. Clearly, people are watching you on OWN (I know I have been since January 10th of this year) and they see how warm and comfortable and real that you are. Like a shinny penny that you know will bring you luck! I’ve said before…you were holding the OWN fort down until Oprah finished her show in my “Thank God for Gayle” article months ago. It’s been amazing…and I know you will be amazing on CBS…and we will be watching. You have about 7 weeks to find that perfect yellow outfit for your first day. OK…let’s get on with today’s show!

•About Dr. Travis from The Doctors -A Hot Doctor…you could put this on a “favorite things” list and it would be a good thing. But Dr. Travis is here to tell us that it’s important to find a doctor that you can connect with. So, Gayle asks a great question…”In medical school, is there a class about bedside manor?” Well, Dr. Travis thinks that schools are doing a better job at it…but if doctors are missing the mark, then they are missing out on greatness. And…the more you speak up, the better it is. Gayle reminds us, “Be your own advocate.” Empower yourself. Empower your life.
