The Examination

Back Next

Today's piece comes to me from Jessie. This is one of those life stories that those of us over a certain age can readily appreciate.




I have had numerous surgeries in my life. Recently I had to change doctors and I had to fill out a patient history. The doctor came into the examination room, he had my paper reading it, he looked at me and said,

"After reading this history of yours, I don't think we need to ask if you are an organ donor. I see from this that you are leaving this world one piece at a time."
