the ultimate sacrifice

I've got a drinking engagement this afternoon with my former colleagues and compatriots....and it's on the house from the VP who played the Ace of spades to get me into medical school....And I can't DRINK! I'll be waiting for a conference call with my bro and his oncologist at MD Anderson to go over the latest MRI and CT results and, hopefully, discuss the treatment plans. I hope my brother appreciates the sacrifices we doctors make.....sigh.
(written completely tongue in cheek because if you don't think humor is some of the best medicine when confronted with cancer....well, I'll spare you the verbal tongue lashing that you so richly deserve...)
