Took Dad up to the Veterans clinic today to get him checked out by the ENT doc. He has been having trouble with his voice. Practically shouting to get words out. His NP had suspected he had reflux so put him on meds for that til he could be seen by the ENT doc. I always go in with Dad. So there we are, with Doc and his nurse getting ready to scope Dad's vocal cords. With the camera down Dad's throat, the nurse turns to me and says, "you want to see don't you!" "Oh Heck Yes, it's interesting!" She laughs and says "I thought so just by the look in your eyes!" She sets it up so I can see it on the monitor and Doc walks me thru what we are seeing. It was very interesting. Dad will be staying on the meds as they are helping, and was cautioned to not force his voice, but there are no other problems.
I told them I had worked for a large and small animal veterinarian and was always getting in trouble... Doc, bless his heart, would ask me if I wanted to scrub in. "Yes Sir!" And away surgery would go, until Doc would lean over to me and say, "I can't see to close with your damn head in the way!"
