"IN DOG YEARS, I`M DEAD"
Friday, October 28, 2011
I have a fond memory of coming back from the Imaging expert (looked a lot like George Clooney), to be accosted by a younger version, who produced a stethoscope and said he would like to listen. By all means, thought I. As long as you like.
At last he folded up the stethoscope and said, "Well, you have a heart murmur."
Now I had previously spent part of an afternoon hooked up to machines in cardiology. With my total lack of medical expertise, I still found it difficult to believe that young glamorous Dr Kilpatient here with his trusty old stethoscope had discovered what they were totally unable to see......
But he was very easy on the eye. I suddenly realised that this wasn`t real. I was obviously now living in a hospital soap.
"I find a lot of those", he confided.
"I`m sure you do", I replied, thinking "probably in every single patient, and you cure them single handed, before the commercials....".
Well, I came home at last, to absolutely hyper puppies, all struggling with teething and the huge problems of growing up. One had explored enough to step on a nettle, and the other two were totally entertained by his antics as he screamed and howled and rolled about and proclaimed that he was going to die. Would they get his share of the food, then? His mother rolled her eyes in disbelief, and gave me a look that stated that I needn`t expect her to do anything. Eventually the appearance of dinner made him decide that perhaps his feet wouldn`t fall off today.
All back to normal, then.
Thank you all for your good wishes.
Glad you are better, and hope you are back to normal (whatever that is) soon!
