Mea Culpa

I'll never forget the time I forgot about a patient. It was in the days when the person was admitted the evening before, had surgery the next day, and was discharged the day after that. Some of you can't remember that far back, but I can. I saw the man the evening before, did the surgery the next day, and promised to see and discharge him the morning after that. But I forgot. Of course, I discharged him the next afternoon, and he never complained.

I never forgot another obligation after that--until today. Sorry. I'm still dealing with some "stuff" and--as we say in Texas--"plumb forgot" to prepare a post. Here it is, later than I usually get them up, but better late than never.

I promise to have my regular post for you Friday--unless I forget.

It's okay to forget once in awhile. Sounds like you've been busy as popcorn in a skillet.

I laugh at myself every day since I will have a thought of something I need to do and by the time I get to the kitchen (everything starts from my kitchen), I will have forgotten what it is.

I promise I'll have a post on Friday. But until then, thought I'd let you all practice forgiveness. Thanks.
