Yesterday I had another “Who would have thought” experience. I had an appointment with my doctor for a regular check-up type visit. The alarm went off and I groggily got out of bed with the idea of getting ready to go to the doctor. Then the phone rang. It was the doctor’s office saying she was sick and we needed to reschedule my appointment.
Now I know that doctors get sick just like the rest of us — how could they not since they’re around sick people? — but I just never considered I might have to change an appointment because the doctor was sick. There’s been a nasty virus making its rounds so it’s possible that is what caused my visit to need to be changed. I do hope the recovery is quick and complete but we did make the new appointment for three weeks away just in case.
Are there people in your life that you never consider could get sick?
