happy doctor’s day

Love this pic I snapped of Addie, at the recent open house for Geoff’s surgery center.

We’re taking our doctor out of town for a few days of rest, relaxation and golf.

Just for fun, here’s a flashback scrapbook page that I thought of this morning …

The little poem reads:

My Daddy

When my daddy signs his name, he always writes M.D.
Some letters in his name are small, but these are not you see.
He always makes them big like that because he’s proud of me.
For M.D. means “My Daddy” or something just the same,
and that is why he always puts these letters on his name.

FYI: Origin of “National Doctor’s Day”
Doctors’ Day observances date back to March 30, 1933. It was started by Eudora Brown Almond of Winder, Ga. The day marks the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. The first National Doctor’s Day was celebrated in 1991.

On March 30, 1958, the United States House of Representatives adopted a resolution commemorating Doctors’ Day. In 1990, the congress and the senate approved legislation establishing National Doctors Day. The resolution designating March 30 as National Doctors’ Day was signed by President George Bush.

  1. I did not even know there was a Doctor’s Day. Thanks for the heads up, I am off to get something for my favorite Doctor…my sister.

    Have a great trip!

  2. I didn’t know there was a doctor’s day. Always something to learn isn’t there?
    I love that poem, very sweet.

  3. That is just about the sweetest poem I have ever read. Awwwww!

  4. I am saving that poem—with 2 about to be docs in the family–I just might need that!!

  5. I’d forgotten about Doctor’s Day. When I worked in the Activity Department at the local nursing home, we used to celebrate Doctor’s Day with a lunch for our physicians and the residents used to sign posters for them. One of our doctors retired a few years ago and I went to his Retirement Open House and there were all the posters we’d made for him with all the different signatures. He told me it was one of the highlights of working with his patients at the nursing home. So, remember your doctor!

  6. awww cute.
