Yesterday sure turned out to be a strange day for doctor's visits. Last night John told me about the appointment he had yesterday with his oncologist.
After I went to my dental appointment, John headed over to the oncology office. He was going for his six month check up. He walked into the office and Dr. Ford looked at him. Dr. Ford saw his T-shirt (It read: "I'm proud to be an American") and the doctor said, "I bet you're for Bush, aren't you?". John was a little taken aback. Here was a man who had only seen John twice. A doctor who had only seen him twice and was speaking politics to him in the doctor's office right off the bat. Dr. Ford continued, "So what country do you think he is going to invade next?" John stood there kind of stunned. "I think Iran or North Korea," the Dr. said. I don't know if John had even thought about the subject yet, but I do know what he was thinking about at the time. He wanted to get the results back from the tests he had taken a few days earlier. He wanted to know whether he was still in the clear and still a cancer survivor of five years. Cancer that they thought at one time would probably be terminal. Go figure.
