My Tribute to Dr. K

Ahhhh, the unforgettable Dr. K. The man I will remember the rest of my life with a fondness that cannot be put into words.

My lifesaver.

My deliverer.

My hero.

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.

He lied.

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.

Head on over to Jay's and Deb's blogs for more Tuesday's Tribute posts from other bloggers.

LMAo rock.

My wife is in love with her OB...she not-so-secretly loves little Jewish guys...drags me to EVERY Ben Stiller movie.

Glad you found a drug dealer you could depend on.

I said "I LOVE YOU" within seconds of recieving my epidural all three times and it wasn't to my Hubby. That drug is truly a miracle.

I think anesthesiologists (sorry, can't spell) must have the most thankful patients b/c I fell in love with all of mine too. Too bad all the women are like ready to burst and not looking tip top. :)

Congrats on Way to go!
