Had a patient this morning who kept answering his cell phone while I was trying to unwrap his splint and examine his broken limb. His ringtone was the theme from Sanford and Son. Guess what'll be going through my head all night?

Quote of the night

On Orthopedics call the other night, went to see a seven-year-old girl with a busted arm. She was crying when I walked into the room, and as I knelt down next to her she turned to me with tears and sniffles and said, "I need to pee. I'm not kidding!"

Remembering Dad

My father died last week. To the very end he faced his situation with grace, dignity, and humor. I miss him terribly.

His obituary is here. Mom is very strong and is doing well. Thank you to all who have been so generous with condolences, cards, flowers, food, wishes, and support.
