A Rainy Day Story
Today was “one of those days.” I don’t believe I’ve ever seen as much rain fall so hard or for so long as I did today. My wife and I were on our way to Tyler, Texas, to make a couple of purchases and, more importantly, to see Dr. John Hudnall, an ear, nose and throat specialist, because I had a little physical problem. A blood vessel apparently burst in my nose, and I had experienced some bleeding the past two nights.
When we arrived at Hudnall’s office, we filled out the necessary forms, waited about 15 minutes and were ushered into an adjoining office. We listened as Hudnall talked with another patient. He was patient, kind and gentle, and the tone of his voice made both of us realize he was a doctor interested in the care of his patients.
He treated me with the same courtesy, carefully explaining the problem. He pointed out that although he was not totally certain, he had every reason to believe he had spotted the culprit and that cauterization would solve the problem. He finished the procedure and indicated he thought the problem was solved. He gave me some specific instructions, suggesting I buy a nasal spray to use for a couple of days, and bid us a friendly and pleasant goodbye.
He truly is an old-fashioned doctor practicing up-to-date medical care. Message: There are friendly people and caring doctors everywhere, and the best way to find them is to be a friendly, caring person who expects to find them wherever you go. Take that approach, and I will see you at the top!
