I had a great moment Friday. I was talking with a group of physicians. We were talking about diagnoses of children. A doc that takes care of adults said to the Peds doc, “John, you can put the diagnosis as ‘FLK.’ Do you know what an ‘FLK’ is?” John is a pediatric plastic surgeon which means he’s the one operating on children born with craniofacial abnormalities like cleft palates. My mind immediately went to my FLK post from just a few days prior.
John’s facial expression and tone grew firm. He made eye contact with the other doc and replied, “None of my patients are FLKs. They’re not funny-looking.”
You, go! I was proud of him.
