A doctor finished examining a patient, and he came to troubling conclusion. He told the man to wait outside, and he called the man’s wife in for a talk.
“Ms. Thompson, your husband’s situation is critical. You are going to need to take care of him, else he will die. He needs bed rest. He needs to quit his job, and he shouldn’t be doing any work around the house. Serve him all his meals in bed. I hope you understand.”
The wife told the doctor she understood, and she left with her husband to go home. In the car the husband asked if the doctor had given him any information he should know.
“He did, my dear,” the wife responded. “He says you’re going to die.”
