When Father’s Day Rolls Around, I Won’t Be There
I’m not your dad.
I’m not anyone’s dad.
I got a vasectomy at 21.
Did it for Carol, my first wife.
Emergency surgery for a tubular pregnancy.
Technically termed an ectopic pregnancy.
Grandmother reveals her three tubular pregnancies.
Maybe runs in family.
Carol is frightened.
Scared I will kill her.
I volunteer for a vasectomy.
Carol breathes easy.
I’m squirting skim milk fluid now.
I’m going to be 70 soon.
I have a mediastinal mass in my chest cavity.
CT scan reveals possible teratoma.
Doctor’s summary 5/5/2016…
I once again discussed the importance of the diagnosis of the etiology of his mediastinal mass and the need for a biopsy to confirm or rule out a possible malignancy and once again the patient declined any referrals for biopsy or surgical treatment of this problem.
Miracles surround us.
I am at peace.
