39. An injury like that can be quite enlightening...
...especially if someone is used to pretty much good health and physical well-being.

Wonder if he's going to be any different...

Knew a doctor who was quite stingy with prescribing pain meds to his post-op patients...
"Bunch of wimps and wusses!"
Then he had to have HIS gallbladder out...he changed his tune in a big hurry and he was enough of a MAN to admit to the nurses and his patients that he had been wrong.
