on a REALLY personal note…

yesterday, i went to the doctor for a check-up.  it was the first time i’d been to see him in a couple of years, and we had a great time catching up.

frankly, i think he realized a lot more benefit out of our visit than i did.  nevertheless…

i was once again struck (as i frequently am) by the amazing creativity of god.  it is said that when men begin to approach their mid-fifties (as i am) that they should have their prostate checked (and you can see where this is going…i promise to maintain the decorum for which this site is renowned). statistics say that 1 in 6 men will develop prostate cancer before they die.  i once had a doctor friend tell me that prostate cancer is inevitable for all men, it’s just that most die before they are diagnosed.

and don’t be anxious, dear reader, for i do not have prostate cancer.

i was just thinking that with the prevalence of prostate problems, it was exceptionally thoughtful of god to put a port in our bodies that the doctor can use specifically for prostate examinations.

  1. Without a doubt, that is the best thing I have heard all day long, and I have had a pretty good day thus far. What does that say about me?!?!

  2. *i was just thinking that with the prevalence of prostate problems, it was exceptionally thoughtful of god to put a port in our bodies that the doctor can use specifically for prostate examinations.*

    Sorely tempted to post this sentence to my Facebook page, but waylayed temptation by emailing to my immediate family.

    • thanks for the kinds words, ed, you are always so gracious. however, i really must confess…

      after writing this post, i though of another reason for the prostate examination port.
