They say time flies when you‘re having fun.  I’ve always found that to be true.  How about you?

I’ve also found that time flies.  Period.

I took my darling daughter, Gracie to the orthopedic doctor on Wednesday to deal with the broken leg.  Luckily, she was able to get put in a boot rather than a cast.

The orthopedic doctor gave me the impression of being a doddering old man who didn’t care to spend any time with a patient and should retire.

We’ve probably all had a doctor like that somewhere along the line.  This one astounded me because our family has been going to him for years.

And I realized on Wednesday that we've been going to him for YEARS , and he probably is retirement age!  He did my rotor cuff surgery 12 yrs ago.  He did my husband's shoulder surgeries 13 and 15 years ago.   He took care of my son's feet 25 years ago.  

It’s no wonder he’s a white haired old man!  The passage of time seems to do that to us all.

    • What’s retirement age??? Your ortho doctor probably wouldn’t know what to do if he didn’t work.  

      Over half of 2014 has gone by and you can’t slow it down. Yup, time flies and I don’t look forward to it.

    • I figure “retirement age” is when you‘re not doing your job well anymore.  Based on the minute and a half he was in the room with my daughter, I have no idea if he’s still doing his job well.  He just didn’t seem to care.

    • I understand we all want caring doctors who are great at their job. I’d had young(er)doctors who seemed to be good in their work, but didn’t show compassion. For my sake it was necessary to find another. Also, one of my doctors retired and I miss her. It’s not the same with the new one.

      Okay, who’s going to tell the doc he needs to retire because he’s not doing a good job and doesn’t care about his patients anymore.

    • Sounds like he’s either having a bad day or it is time to go , if he is like that all the time. Every dr needs to be caring.
