I am going to be a bit up front and honest. There are moments in one’s life that constitute a “crossing over”, a time where life is not going to be the same: the first set of keys, the high school diploma, the wedding ring. In the medical community, there is a moment shrined in insurance coverage permissions marking the half-century as the blessed time at which point a doctor gets to look at the patient from the inside. Dave Barry wrote eloquently about this experience. What he mentioned not knowing, I know. I have assisted in this procedure. I have prepared patients for this procedure. I know what they are going to do. Let me pause for a moment and acknowledge that in certain areas, ignorance truly is bliss. Knowledge carries an emotional weight and to be honest, I tend to think, brood, contemplate all of the complications possible. I guess that for the most part, all comes out all right. So when I am typing tomorrow, it will probably be while wearing a seat-belt.
