My youngest was dancing and twisted her knee, injuring it bad enough that the surgeon recommended an operation. I flew her home so we could get another opinion.
What an asshole. He did not even examine her knee, said it was common in young girls and that it would be fine in a few days........ its been two weeks and it is not better!! He took no medical history and prescribed a pain killer I could have got over the counter, which has no beneficial effect. So annoyed. He came recommended and after travelling 150KM to see him,...... a day of my life I wont get back.
Many years ago, the Irish had a priest and a nun in the family. These days I think each family should have a doctor and a lawyer.
Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and almost never leave. Our lives are measured by those.
