The Oskaloosa Eagles Lodge held a charity Bicycle Fun Run on Sept. 21. The event raised $500 to benefit the Mahaska Health Partnership Hospice Serenity House. Shown at the check presentation outside the Eagles Lodge are, from left: MHP Home Health and Hospice Director Anne Hildreth, MHP Chief Operating Officer Erin Baldwin, event organizer Phil Laud and committee member Rilla Williamson. Laud said he would like to thank all the businesses who donated to the event, as well as the participants.
With a new little one, the tests, forms and information are abundant. Family Practice with Obstetrics Physician Dr. Shawn Richmond knows this all too well! One test that all of his little patients receive is a pulse oximetry to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. Sounds big but it’s actually quite small. The test uses little sticky monitors (think of a band-aid), that are applied to a baby’s foot and hand. Don’t worry, this test is totally painless, but provides insight on their health, often before any signs and symptoms could be noticed. Pretty neat huh?

When it comes to your body, aches and pains can really throw you for a loop! One common complaint is hip, knee and shoulder pain, at least in MHP Orthopaedic Surgeon Sreedhar Somisetty, MD’s, office! Some may think replacing those joints will fix all; however, Dr. Somisetty likes to remind patients that it’s not a race to the finish line and taking baby steps will get you on the road to recovery!
