I drove downtown to a small private hospital to meet the only doctor I knew. The receptionist led me to an exam room.
The tall, blonde pony-tailed physician walked in and said,
"Caleb Runson, you devilish little imp. Had I known you'd walk back into my life, I wouldn't have gotten married."
My new doctor, Ava Pennington was also my girlfriend of 3 years when I was in college.
After x-rays, a physical, blood work, and awkward flirtatious catch-up conversation; she confirmed everything.
Struggling to speak, Ava whispered,
"Dr. Anson Cluber is a reknown heart surgeon, I called his office."
