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.
