It kind of made me melancholy for the “old days”. “A symbol of American strength.” Wow!
I actually had a primary physician who would take care of generations of patients in the same family. They called them “general practicioners” back then. He delivered me and took out my tonsils 5 years later.
My parents had to switch to Kaiser when I was six and I became a medical record number.
My old doc is still around, albeit in a very reduced practice. His son followed in his footsteps and is now also a popular doctor in this area.
Speaking of tradition, it is Tuesday!
Next week I’m the host for Grand Rounds!
I guess you could say I’m just a wee bit excited with a bit of nerves thrown in! LOL!
This is going to be a blast – I’ll be posting information regarding where to send your submissions and the theme and when the party starts.
Hey, what can I say? I love this stuff!
