Ahhhh, the unforgettable Dr. K. The man I will remember the rest of my life with a fondness that cannot be put into words.
Approximately 8.5 months ago this amazing and wonderful doctor waltzed into my labor room wearing shorts, tennis shoes and a button up shirt. My husband about knocked him through the wall, thinking some strange man busted in during a rather inopportune, not to mention private time.
But then, he realized that I would knock him through a wall if he so much as laid a hand on this fabulous man that I had been waiting for and dreaming about for 9 long months.
I remember Dr. K telling me it would be about 10 minutes before I felt any relief from this magic thing they call an epidural.
The relief was instant.
I wholeheartedly uttered the words, "I love you."
He replied rather matter-of-factly... "Yeah, I get that a lot."
I bet you do, you freakin' awesome stinkin' doctor!
Thank you for responding to my request for drugs in 15 minutes or less. You are a very, very smart man, and I assure you that I will never, ever forget you. E-V-E-R.
